I was actually at the Office Depot Center last week for the Flyers vs. Panther's game. We had box seats. (A friend of mine works for a company that owns four of them.) Let me tell how nice it is when each box has their own personal bathroom. The seats were comfy, the boxes were warm, and the view was phenomenal! The Flyers of course won (much to my dismay as they are the Pens rivals and my best friends favorite team - oh the banter that ensues!) and on our way back to the truck there were several little kids standing on the curb.
Honestly, no idea where their moms were. I imagine they were close by, but the parking lot was crowded with plenty of fans leaving. These kids had hockey sticks and were banging them on the curb. I was wearing an orange sweatshirt, not in support of the Flyers, but because orange is my favorite color, and but the couple in front of us were indeed wearing Flyers jerseys.
This was not okay to these Shorty Panther Fans. They started banging their sticks harder and looked right at us chanting, "Flyers are cheaters! Flyers are cheaters!"
Everyone started busting out laughing. You don't mess with the the Shorty Panther Fans! They'll tell you how it is! The next time the Flyers play the Pens, if they win (highly doubtful) I'm going to look at my friend and be like, "Flyers are cheaters! Flyers are cheaters!"
If nothing else it'll be good for a laugh.
Tonight it's just me and the hubby. Unfortunately they're remodeling the store at the Office Depot Center so all they've had is a small kiosk with trinkets and such, so more than likely I won't get that Penguin's Fleury jersey I've been wanting.
Yes, that's right. I said Fleury. I know everyone generally has Crosby and Malkin fever, but it's all about Fleury baby.
I'm kind of hoping that once the Penguins kick ass and take names those little kids are out there chanting, "Penguin's are cheaters!" Don't ask me why. I know I'm weird.
