07:24 AM ET 08.22 | With zombies invading pop culture, perhaps it was a matter of time before they ambled into sports. This September, the zombie apocalypse is coming Philadelphia. Well, at least it's coming to the goal crease at Wells Fargo Center. For his mask this season, Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason will have a historical-themed zombie invasion of Philadelphia set during the time of the Declaration of Independence. The mask is being painted by Franny Drummond, who runs PaintZoo and will feature the Betsy Ross, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington, as well as other historical figures -- all in zombie form. ... "He said, 'I want horror, but without a horror movie,'" Drummond told NHL.com. "He [Mason] said, ???why don't we do Ben Franklin as a zombie.'"

I was hoping it'd be Bryz as a zombie.

It must have been difficult to get the entire defense on there.

Until I saw the close-up I wasn't sure I cared!

"Until I saw the close-up I wasn't sure I cared!"

I'm not positive that's actually it but its what I'd have on my face.

If "it" is making too many appearances in Philly, it just means the Flyers haven't found a legitimate goaltender and the fans will be subjected to the same heartbreaking performance us CBJ fans experienced for years. Nonetheless, good luck Steve, hope this helps you find your inner deadness.

For a Flyer goalie, I can't think of a better theme for the mask.

The only thing more scarce in Philly than zombies lately is the Cup
