West’s portrayal of the superhero and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne, ultimately made it hard for him to get other roles, and while he continued to work throughout his career, options remained limited because of his association with the character.
Among his most prized possessions is the scorebook he used during the 1980 World Series when he was 10 years old. Lindros sustained a collapsed lung in a game at Nashville on April 1, 1999 and was rushed to the hospital after roommate Keith Jones found him in a bathtub looking pale. The Flyers lost, 6-3, in a game that was stopped several times as fans littered the ice with batteries, bullets, golf balls, coins and pacifiers and other debris. Seems worse than snowballs at Santa Claus, doesn’t it? Lindros’ 1991 autobiography, Fire On Ice, is available on Amazon for four bucks. He had 11 hat tricks in his Flyers career, tied for third with Le Clair. “In Eric’s life now, there is a wonderful peace about him,” his wife, Kina, said in that Sports Net report.
He came to Philadelphia after a ridiculous series of events that required an arbitrator, a series of hearings and hundreds of pages of testimony to untangle. He was stripped of his captaincy in 2000 after criticizing the care he was receiving by the Flyers medical staff. The Flyers originally insisted Lindros fly home, a move that Carl Lindros said would have been fatal. Lindros finished in the top 10 of MVP voting five times, winning it in 1995. Only Tim Kerr (17) and Rick Mac Leish (14) had more. One more from Fleischman: “In Eric’s second season with the Flyers, I wrote a column suggesting that Eric thought the Flyers would be a better team by then. “He really feels like he can help [people with concussions].
West was a regular on the show from 2000 through its most recent season. ” onscreen exclamations, flamboyant villains and cheeky tone, “Batman” became a surprise hit with its premiere on ABC in 1966, a virtual symbol of ’60s kitsch.
