I Hate Being Right

One of the most lackadaisical, bumbling displays of hockey I have ever witnessed.

Why do the Flyers (I'm looking at you Downie) have such an aversion to playing the "North-South" (a term I hate) game? Why did they insist all night on passing side to side instead of dumping it down low? Why do they look like an entirely different team than the one that won the first two rounds? Where the hell did Joe Beninati and Darren Eliot come from and can we send them back?

So either they roll over in Game Four or they raise our hopes by winning one on home ice, but it's over.

At least The Office is on. Ha! The one where Michael grills his foot and Dwight gets a concussion!!

Concussions aren't funny to Flyers fans....

I had hoped that a GIS for "Flyers Girls" would cheer me up. It didn't. But here you go.

If VS could find a way to telecast a game with play by play by Beninati and Eliot as "optional" I think they discover how disliked they are.

You are so right.

I'd seriously like to know where they came from. I'd hate to think that there are two non-playoff teams that have to listen to both of them all season on their local coverage.

This past sunday night was one of my favorites of Beninati. He started to say "The Flyers _________." He got as far as "The F" and suddenly decided to go all early 1900's, purple prose spewing sportswriter and said "The visitors from the City of Brotherly Love______." I can't remember what he was talking about, but I seem to remember it being as mundane as bringing the puck up the ice.

I want to punch them both hard. In the neck.
