"But even with the limitations of their defensive corps, the Flyers impress the hell out of me up front and Martin Biron is in his prime right now."

-- [Puck Daddy] Oct 9.

Flyers = 0-3-3 thanks to J.R. last night:




InPuck Daddy's defense, Biron actually came in last night and stopped 18 of 20 shots.

So why are the Flyers so bad?
Maybe too much partying by Upjoke and Palindrome?



Wow.




So cute.

[Thanks to Anon for the tip]

John Stevens watch is on.

Go Pens

Jeff Reed > any member or members of the Flyers

^^^
obviously talking about drinking skills.

Jeff goes out and downs about 10 or 12 and then starts working his magic at the bars. The Flyers have one or two and start hanging all each other.

The pictures do not lie.

Pops Freshenmeyer said...

Hell, Roethlisberger > Any member of the Flyers. At least he has women hanging all over him when he's drunk.

dhudzin said...

Anyone catch the announcer calling Briere "Danielle"? Classic.

brett said...

@dhudzin

They totally did, and it was balls-to-the-wall awesome.

fleuryous said...

That one picture of them is hilarious.


You can imagine them saying

"Brah, we're SOLID."


If by a solid record, yes.
If by a solid SHUTOUT record, then YES. hahaha.

dying alive said...

Isn't his name pronounced the French way - "Danielle"? Kind of like HCMT's name is pronounced "Michelle?"

debrisslide said...

The only reason the Flyers were even in that game was because Nabokov gave up soff goals. Sharks should have dominated.

Dr. Turkleton said...

per the 2007-08 NHL Pronunciation Guide [yes, there is one]

Daniel Briere - [bree-AIR, DAN-yehl]

any way you pronounce it: he's still a fruit loop.

DA said: Isn't his name pronounced the French way - "Danielle"?

...I was going to say that is how you say it in french.

crmzak said...

WOW.

Flyers throw the gayest gang signs I've ever seen.

And that yellow shirt reminds me of a baby onesie, straight outta Babies R Us.

PS

Thanks ANNIE for the Torrents site couple posts back!

jayness said...

Where's the A Night at the Roxbury photoshop?

Carroll said...

That yellow shirt reminds me of a babies onesie. really nice with the reinforced snaps and all.

Carroll said...

@crmzak - I guess we were thinking the same thing.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Tickets sold.

I think just the potential to see Melichar in a pre-game skate sold these tickets!

crmzak said...

LOL carroll. it's settled then. baby onesie it is.

either that, or he shops at the same stores as Charlie.

crmzak said...

Ohhh wait, now I remember when this was. Wasn't this the same night they were
partying in P-town?

Duff said...

Roethlisberger + breaking tackles = Big Ben

Roethlisberger + Gloves = Big Baby

I miss army

J.S. said...

crm, Are they hanging out there because they read the bank title as "See Men", or are they there hoping for a withdrawal?

BlacknGold66 said...

"It's not so much that I'm good, it's that Roenick's good."

dying alive said...

Lunch in our cafeteria today is called the "Big Ben Burger." No word yet on how many were intercepted before they made it to the tables.

Joose said...

They look like the biggest d-bags in the universe...

...probably because they are the biggest d-bags in the universe.

I hope there wasn't some sort of Hawaiian theme, and they just thought it would be a good idea to dress that way for absolutely no reason at all.

Joose said...

If there was a Hawaiian theme, it looks like Mark Madden's head shot was also taken at the "party."

tmkst13 said...

Any reason there's so much Steelers talk on here? If I had to compare apples to apples....

Staal drinking on the side of a highway at 3am vs. Any Flyer... Staal wins.
Malkin and his crazy Russian vodka vs. Any Flyer... Malkin wins.
Crosby and a bottle of Crown Royal vs. Any Flyer... Crosby wins.

Raybin said...

My God, the Flyers are a bumper crop of fail this year. The only bigger jokes than them personally is their play.

The only reason the Flyers were even in that game was because Nabokov gave up soff goals.

I'll bet even Jesus Christ had an off night or two back in the day. :)

Healthy Scratch: Joe Melichar Returns Night

Doc Turkleton FTW!

kstewy16 said...

I like how behind them there are Red sox and Yankees jerseys...
No Flyers/phillies/eagles jerseys, cus after all, they haven't won anything in 25 years.

And also, can we petition to have someone called up to replace Gill? I really don't want to see Sydor on the blue line. I'd much rather see them call up Lovejoy for a couple games.

The Goon Blogger said...

Man I wish Carolina would dress Melichar tonight.

Sydor for a few games will be fine. Sydor was huge in the playoffs when Letang was out. He's a good plug, though we're paying him a bit too much to be a plug.

matt in dc said...

Any reason there's so much Steelers talk on here?

Some of it brought on because of Roethlisberger and Reed's drinking photos.

Some of it, I would say, brought on by TPB staff's hatred for Hines Ward.

Which I don't get at all, I must say. If Brooks Orpik or Scott Stevens or whomever catches a guy with his head down on the ice, is it the proper protocol to yell "look out" before crushing him?

jefe p said...

finally i get to wear one my melichar jerseys. but should it be the 2000 home, away, alternate or practice? or the custom winter classic? or the home, away, practice reebok edge ones i just picked up.. i know, i wear my '91 home with stanley cup patch and "C". melichar = my hero.

The Goon Blogger said...

I don't think tPB hates Hines Ward, much in the same way they don't hate the Steelers. They just like jobbing on them because it pisses people off. I for one think it's hysterical.

nikki said...

"now DANIELLE briere" ouch.
j.r. superstar, what a beast

wilsmith said...

Yeah I dont think they hate Hines Ward.

and isn't that just how briere's name is pronounced?

Our team is coached by a guy named Michel.
