Here's a photo via reader Jake Malin (@jakemalin85), who says he saw these in at least three separate urinals at The Well last night. Anyone else have a similar experience, mass murderers?
- Last night's Flyers game was the most watched hockey game in the history of CSN:
The game was the most watched Flyers game in Comcast SportsNet’s history, delivering a 12.6 rating (383,000 households), with a peak delivery of 14.7 (446,000 households) at 9:45 p.m. Last night’s Game 7 ratings bested the previous high set on May 14, 2010 when the Flyers came back from a 3-0 deficit in the game, and in the series, to beat the Boston Bruins and advance to the Stanley Cup Conference Finals.
During the first round of the playoffs, Comcast SportsNet is averaging a 7.8 rating (237,000 HHs), topping last year’s first round by 47%. In 2010, the Flyers defeat of the New Jersey Devils scored a 5.3 rating for the series.
To put that in perspective, the Phillies peaked at 562,000 households last September. Not bad, hockey. Not bad.
- According to John Clark of NBC 10 – and as we predicted – the Flyers will play Saturday at 3 P.M. on NBC. That is not being reported anywhere else, so it still could change. But that's looking like the most likely start time.
- Finally, let's check in on our playoff beards. Send your beards to crossingbroad [at] yahoo [dot] com. I'll post the best ones we get. I will grudgingly accept any merkins you may have purchased or fashioned. No snatch pics, please.
Video of Boucher's beard and a pic of mine after one round, which is at a perfect length between I don't give a fuck and Mike Richards… after the jump.
