Fuck me. This sets a – checks mythical record book – Yep, this sets a CB record– two posts from silly Canadians.
Rogers SportsNet unveiled their Top 5 Teams We Love To Hate article today, which itself is yet another example of dying mainstream media’s way of generating buzz and page views*… which we’re biting right into because it’s a slow day.
*Blogs are generally the ones with filters. Seriously, I could write 1,000 words about which current or former CSN anchor was most fuckable, and it would be the most viewed post ever on Crossing Broad. Why don’t I? Because I have a soul. Because. I. Have. A. Soul.
Number one on SportsNet.ca’s list, as you may have guessed, your Philadelphia Flyers. After a few extraordinarily uncreative paragraphs about the Broad Street Bullies and one calling out Wayne Simmonds for being a chippy player (they hath seen some color, it seems), we were treated to this graf:
Not only do people hate the Flyers because of their chippy and rough style of play, they also hate them because of Flyers fans in general, especially when they behave like this.
That led into our video of the Geno’s fight, which was bad, but not as bad as this Saints fan who shot two 49ers fans after this weekend’s loss. The article also failed to mention the Canadian banana tosser who tossed a banana at that chippy Simmonds.
So go on, Canada, you keep spreading the seed of Philly’s impurity… We’ll keep, um, not being from Canada.
