Ilya Bryzgalov Wants to Play Here

Bryzgalov_cupHe'll fit right in!

In Bizarro Snider, Russian goalie want you! 

I butchered that, but you get the point. Bryzgalov, which is actually easier to spell than it sounds, wants to play here. Via a press release that I'm guessing he didn't write: [Philly Sports Daily]

“I am pleased the Flyers thought enough of me to make the trade with the Coyotes. Philadelphia is a great city, a great organization and a great team with a rich history. I am looking forward to meeting with Paul Holmgren to discuss the possibility of us working together for many years to come. I would very much like to have the opportunity to play for the Flyers and be a part of the team Paul has assembled and to work with Paul and Mr. Snider to see if we can achieve the ultimate goal.

I believe the Flyers are right there and I would love very much to be a part of the team that brings the Stanley Cup back to Philadelphia. It would be a great honor. And it’s time!”


AND IT'S TIME! For what? To make the donuts? To win the Cup? Who cares! It's Bryzy in – quick what rhymes with Bryzy – in… the illapdelph.

This is better:

  1. Maybe I should create one so I can make some cash? Ha yeah right. Those are just the worst.

  2. C’mon Scoop, can’t a guy wear a shirt that looks like a throw-rug and still have some self respect?

  3. UGH! That shirt looks like something straight out of the 70’s! And who said Russians had fashion sense?

  4. it’s safe to say with that terrible shirt, he won’t be in the richards & carter running crew

  5. @ Steve – you get some major points for coming up with the ‘ilya’ shirt, i would definitely get one

  6. iilya is Russian for Hippie. Good goalie, whaddaya know the Flyers need one of those. He can help teach Bob, in Russian. Don’t everyone get too excited. This is a goalie, and this is Philly. Don’t forget that. “Things” can go south no matter how good “things” look. Just a long time Flyers fan here to spread some reality. Philly+ Goalies= bad luck

  7. Looks like one of those Russian nesting dolls that pops out one after another with that shirt on.

  8. I can’t tell if the redneck in the background is trying not to laugh at the shirt or trying to covertly pick his nose.

  9. Suppose Holmgren sees me coming out of the shower and decides to trade for me. I’m looking good, got a luscious v of hair going through my chest pubes down to my ball fro. He takes one look at me and goes “Oh my God, I’ve had the old bull now I want the young calf” and she grabs me by the blocker.
