That would be awesome. I heard THAT rumor along with next year's Winter Classic possibly being Rangers v Islanders at Yankee Stadium.

The Pens/Flyers series this year SUCKS!!! Last year's was much better. The Pens need to take at least 2 or 3 off of them this year, or it's gonna be a LOOOOOONG playoffs (or short as the case may be)!

They should play the out door games on European sized rinks for more offense.....
I always root for Pittsburgh after my Philly teams go down...... :cool:

Absolutely. Don't think you'll find anyone in Pittsburgh thinking otherwise. Injuries have been killing us though. Crosby clearly is a huge loss, but Eaton gone for the season, Roberts broken leg, Fleury high ankle (although Conklin is looking good and they should clearly stay with him if he's still hot by the time Fleury is ready to play) Kennedy with mono (he's looked pretty good since we brought him up) and Hall is sick. Have almost an entire line direct from Wilkes-Barre. They have been playing pretty well though despite their misfortune. Terrible loss last night, by the way, just miserable to see that go down the way it did...

:lol: Winding up an Eagles' fan is about as easy as winding your wristwatch.

Lemme tell y'all a little story, if I might...

It was a couple of years ago and the Steelers had just played host to the previously unbeaten New England Patriots. The week that followed what was a monstrous thrashing of the Pats, the unbeaten Eagles came to Heinz Field. I got 50-yd. line seats from the owner of my dealership and called one of my buddies from Philly. He came in, in full garb and away to the North Shore we went. We tailgated for awhile and went to our seats. He was definitely in enemy territory, but was still rooting for the Eagles as they trotted out on to the field, completely unaware of their eminent doom. I think the score was somewhere in the neighborhood of 24-3 at halftime, Steelers (of course).

The 2nd half starts and my buddy is NOWHERE to be found. Somewhere in the middle of the 4th quarter, I get up to drain the main vein and I see him standing out by the concession stands watching on one of the TVs - his Eagles' hat tucked firmly in his back pocket, by this point. He said he just couldn't muster up the cohones to come back to the seats and witness the beating, surrounded by all those black-n'-gold-wearin' fans.

As we drove out, we passed another green-shirted head-hanger. My buddy rolled down his window, looked at this pathetic soul and simply said, "Ouch. I can't believe I drove 5 hours for this crap."

Steelers > :x < Eagles
