Today from the nonsensical and out-of-left field department, Tony Blair talks Flyers-Penguins.
Yep, that’s right, the former British Prime Minister was in Philadelphia last night to receive an award for something or other and told the assembled audience (which I imagine consisted of media and a few hundred insufferable douches) that Senator John Kerry asked him to “bring peace to the Flyers and Penguins.”
A bit more detail from our friend HughE Dillon at Philly Mag:
He said that he wishes he could help broker peace between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins after hearing about the discourse of the two teams in a discussion with Senator John Kerry earlier in the day in Washington D.C.
Well, good luck with that, sir. But just for fun, let’s picture Sidney Crosby as the whining dictator – a female dictator – and the Flyers as a bunker-busting missile, cutting through the rhetoric and directly into the hearts (and minds?) of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who will go home tonight after being swept four-games to zero.
No truth to the rumor that when Peter Laviolette was asked about brokering peace, he told Blair to go fuck himself.
