Flyers Fans to Mob Blackhawks?

Flyers_flash_mob
MyFoxPhilly.com is reporting that this website, and this Facebook page popped up, urging Flyers fans to meet at the corner of 18th and the Parkway at 5 PM tonight to see the Blackhawks off from their hotel (The Four Seasons) to tonight's Game 4 at the Wachovia Center.  Their bus is scheduled to leave at 5:25.

They want fans to follow the Blackhawks bus on their bikes from the Four Seasons Hotel to South Philadelphia.  A source within the Flyers organization tells us they will have a police escort, and fans won't be able to get near the bus.  

We can see this going horribly wrong, but if you do wind up going, please behave!  The last thing Philly sports fans need is another black eye from the national media.

If you see something crazy, send us pics to crossingbroad@yahoo.com or tweet us @crossingbroad.

  1. This is indeed very sad. Why taunt and mob the opposing team? Where is the sportsmanship and “love of the game” in Philly? This will result in nothing but trouble and more bad press for the “other” Flyers fans. I am sure even the Flyers management and team does not want to see this type of behavior. Well, maybe Pronger and Carcillo!

  2. If all they do is jeer and heckle, then what’s the big deal? This is the Finals, people. What should be a concern is all the douchey bike messengers getting associated with Philly nationally. They should get this bike ride promoted by Axe and Old Spice.

  3. I have no problem with this as long as it remains peaceful…
    What is wrong with you people? Freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble… two tenets that our nation was founded on. Come on people!
    Like I said, I see nothing wrong with this… just keep it civil people! No throwing stuff and try to keep the vulgarities to a minimum! The fact that a mob of rabid fans is “escorting” them to the stadium should be mind-screwing enough.

  4. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/Philly-the-most-intimidating-sports-fans-and-proud-of-it/115600251784254?ref=ts that group says it all. we are the fans who cheered when Michael Irving broke his neck and threw snowballs at Santa. im not sure sportsmanship is even a word in philly.

ULTIMATE PHILADELPHIA SPORTS FAN)

  5. It’s a big deal because heckling is a douche thing to do and you know it. everyone’s fear is that it can easily get ugly. What do you mean you don’t know if ‘sportsmanship’ is even a word in PHilly? So you’re just going to give up having it here and be the biggest dicks you can by heckling them? You want the Flyers to win because you’re hoping this “escort” will make them choke? that shows how much you doubt the ability of the Flyers to win it on their own. Of course everyone has the right to freedom of speech but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use your common sense. There’s no point to this event.

  6. Mike,
    Relax, your just upset because you know its the truth. If this happens it WILL get out of hand and end up on the news. No need for that, go to the game, scream your heart out and cheer on your team. Have fun with it but taunting the opposing team as they exit the hotel and board the bus is just classless.

  7. You people saying it will get out of hand are the ones who are reinforcing the stereotype of Philly sports fans. The 12 people who are attending this and will ride along wearing orange are not the problem here. We are just showing our colors and giving the Hawks a little taste of what they should expect to see tonight. Stop the hate and be positive for once. You guys are booing your own fans and reacting to a problem that doesn’t even exist.

  8. This is stupid. If the Flyers took a bus, they should ride along with them to encourage them. What do you expect the Blackhawks to do? If anything, they’ll laugh at the 15 year olds on their Haro bikes saying “are they serious?”.
    Come to the linked site to talk some trash to Hawks fans. I’m the only Flyers fan there :(.
