Pro athletes are always dealing with distractions.
The Phantoms will have to fend off quite the distraction Saturday night. The Flyers' AHL affiliate Lehigh Valley plays the Hershey Bears at Giant Center.
The Bears will be covered in chocolate. No, like, their jerseys will actually depict chocolate dripping down the threads.
Pretty sweet, huh? Get it? Sorry.
CHOCOLATE JERSEYS! We are proud to unveil our Chocolate-Covered February jerseys to be worn this Saturday against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.— Hershey Bears (@TheHersheyBears) January 30, 2020
Get to Giant Center and support your Hershey Bears as they continue to pursuit top spot in the Atlantic
When the Phantoms saw the jerseys on Twitter Friday, they had the right thought.
We plan on bringing graham crackers and marshmallows for the game. 👻— LehighValleyPhantoms (@LVPhantoms) January 31, 2020
The Phantoms return home after visiting Hershey. Nobody would blame them if they got some chocolate for the trip back.
