There’s a cross-state battle looming on the horizon. It’s just far enough off to keep from talking about it, but just close enough to think about. Tonight, the Flyers can inch closer to a showdown with Pittsburgh in the second round. So… let’s start our Yinzer hate now, especially since the Rangers are kind of boring and don’t really have anyone we intensely dislike (yet– Dan Carcillo may play tonight).

I have no idea what this wayward Penguins fan is doing in Flyers territory, in Delaware. I can only assume he’s protesting his mounting debt at MBNA. But that’s not the worst part about this picture, which is obviously the customized sweater. Under no circumstances, no matter your allegiance, is this acceptable. If you’re going to do this sort of thing, at least have the decency to make it dark enough so that people can read it, or use duck tape. I hate the Penguins with every fiber of my being and even I’m slightly offended by this.

ROOT Sports made a delightful – if not intentional – error when spelling Sergei Bobrovsky’s name. You’d think it was just a simple mistake, but then you’ll be reminded of the time one of their producers intentionally withheld evidence of a Flyers goal from the league and figure that, yeah, they probably did this on purpose. Boobrovksy. Heh.

He’s not a Penguin anymore, but he’s still got some of that blood in him:

Carry on. Is it 8 yet?
