JERKISH TO THE MAX
I know I've been away from the blog and Twitter for the past couple days (if you only knew what I had to go through, you'd understand)
But I figure I'd come back strong with something that should fill you with anger and disgust and give you another target on the Penguins to harass beside Sidney Crosby.
So here goes:
Before each game at Wachovia Center, the Flyers put together a little pregame video to get the fans charged up for the team's entrance onto the ice.
In the special playoff video, the Flyers put up a title that they have received from several publications - the most intimidating fans in the NHL.
Well, Penguins center Max Talbot was asked if in fact that was true. Here's what he said:
“They call themselves that? That’s kind of pretentious. They try to be intimidating, obviously. They dress in orange T-shirts and scream a lot. Does that make the Flyers a better team? I don’t think so… it’s the same team on the ice in Pittsburgh or here in Philly.”
Something tells me the Flyers' will have a little response back to that come game time tomorrow.
But in the meantime, tell your friends. Spread the word. I want to hear him booed unmercifully every time he touches the puck tomorrow night.
Then I'll know you all did your job as true fans.
