Flyers Will Not Play in the Winter Classic After All


Though it had been long-rumored that the 2015 Winter Classic would feature the Flyers playing against the Washington Capitals in Washington, it has been revealed that it was only a rumor. According to Yahoo Sports Canada, the 2015 Classic will feature the visiting Chicago Blackhawks taking on the Caps. The Flyers rumor was a strong one though:

“It’s an interesting choice for a number of reasons. The Winter Classic has traditionally featured geographic rivals, which is why some outlets were reporting the Philadelphia Flyers would be the opponent for the Capitals in 2015.”

The only thing left to decide now is the venue. Though Nationals Park seems most likely, I’d like to know what we have to do to get a Winter Classic at Camden Yards.

  1. Yah, haven’t they already been in two? I would think the league wants to spread it around to other teams.

    1. It’s funny you say that, because I would think the league would just hold it in Pittsburgh every year.

    2. Yes, that’s why the Caps and Blackhawks are each getting a second Classic (third outdoor game for the Hawks) when there’s 20 teams who haven’t been in it once.


      1. As I said, Flyers have had it TWICE.
        As YOU said, the Caps have only had it ONCE.
        Chicago is Chicago.

        You better stick to washing balls, since you’re ill-equipped to comment here, fuckbag.

        1. There wouldn’t be 20 teams without one if the NHL wanted to spread it around. I don’t care how many times the other 10 have each gotten it. Reality says they don’t care about spreading it around, like you claimed. It’s all about ratings and money. Philly and Pittsburgh will get their third before many teams get their first.


  2. “I’d like to know what we have to do to get a Winter Classic at Camden Yards.”

    Get Baltimore a hockey team…

  3. “I’d like to know what we have to do to get a Winter Classic at Camden Yards.”

    Yeah, or an NBA All-Star Game! Oh…

  4. What the hell?

    “I’d like to know what we have to do to get a Winter Classic at Camden Yards.”

    Go fuck yourself, Jim.

  5. Hi Everyone!

    Just a reminder that time is *quickly* running out to make your purchase on our registry!

    The big day is tomorrow and Kyle and I would looovvvveeee to see some of our loyal readers make generous contributions to our wedding gift registry online!

    To find it just google “Kyle Laskowski Wedding Registry” and we’ll be the first search result! We’re a few towel sets and spatulas short at this point so that’s why we’re counting on the CB Reader (you!) to show some love!

    We love you all!

    Ms. CB 😉

  6. Camden Yards drops infinite amount of feces all over Nationals Park. What a concrete bowl of shit in the middle of the Navy Yard / Ghetto of DC. Where the fans sip on Peroni and have sweaters tied around the necks, with thigh high khaki shorts and are on their cell phones the entire time taking selfies — leaving in the 5th inning. At least Baltimore has a solid fanbase; DC is nothing but a transplant city full of vile and scum.

    1. that is exactly what john adams said when he rolled in to dc in 1800

      1. I just wanted to let you know that you and the person you’re attached to are underwhelming

  7. Hmmm, phils win 4 in a row, 8 of 10, somehow only 4 back and kyle doesnt say one word about it… And we all know ruben sucks u dont have to try and convince us. I hope the phils go on a huge run here so people like kyle (and u r one of many sadly) miss it becuz they are too busy being typical pessimistic fans

    1. Anyone doubt Funny has a fat wife or girlfriend that he’s with because she’s “a really nice person”?

  8. i was boooorn to love, you. i was boooorn to lick your face. i was born to rub you, but you born to rub me first.

      1. You never ask a navy man if he’ll have another drink, because it’s nobody’s goddamned business how much he’s had already.

  9. Im gonna have the winter classic at your mom’s house.



  10. “This is good stuff. I got it from a Negro. You’re probably high already and you don’t even know it.”

  11. This is the ugliest hat I ever seen. What, do they give you a free bowl of soup with this thing?

    1. But we prepped together, went to war together, hell we played golf together. lets face it….some people just don’t belong

    1. The Caddyshack stuff in the comments is better than anything Jim has posted this week.

      Pound off.

  12. Sorry to report that Jim hanged himself after being called out on asking for a Winter Classic in a non-NHL city.

    The memorial service will be held tonight at Ortlieb’s. In lieu of flowers, please donate a pair of Warby Parker glasses to the homeless.

  13. Now try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this “six foot turkey” as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex – he’ll lose you if you don’t move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that’s when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the other two raptors you didn’t even know were there. Because Velociraptor’s a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this – a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the middle toe. He doesn’t bother to bite your jugular like a lion, oh no … he slashes at you here or here … or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is … you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know … try to show a little respect.

    1. Most of these new commenters neither make sense nor are they funny. It’s especially bad the past few days.

      I’ve wasted enough time. I’m gone!

      Mikey Mess
      (and many others)

      (any follow-ups are from opportunistic trollers)

  14. i dont think the new guy is doing a bad job. who cares if his grammer sucks. so does mine. i also cant touch a computer with it going haywire!

  15. How about I punch-a-size your face…. for free?!?!

    Does that look like spit to you?

      1. I’ve sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber. Didn’t want to do it. I felt I owed it to them.

      2. Dude do you live on this site? You keep saying your done with it yet you keep coming back. Go away

  16. Have these two turned into Schmucks on Wheels or what. Today they were talking about Schnapps. Who cares about this crap. Is there a day that goes by that Miss doesn’t talk about his golf, cigars and private country club with his rich white boy friends. Remember when Bill Campbell had a show. He just talked about sports. Never tried to rub in your face if he had money or not. He also never talked down to his listeners like he was superior to them. Mike Francesa can be a jerk in NY and he will let you know how successful he his and how much money he has but he only does it when he is pushed by a caller. He is a know it all to the callers but it’s usually about sports. He doesn’t start out the show talking about his hobbies, limos and his expensive home.

  17. Fuck off Jim. You fucking cunt. You have ruined this site. While Kyle is away getting his dick dicking stapled to some broad tou have ran his career into the ground. You prob didnt even get an invite to the wedding bc youre a fuck face cunt fucking bitch. Kyle will be on his honeymoon getting his asshole eaten out by the maid while his bride fingers herself toll she sprays. Fuck off.

    1. I believe the commenter above you is correct, in both the handle and the comment.

      Jesus Christ.

    2. @Grim- The comment section, as I have seen for months, looks to each other for importance. Most jokes like yours are absolutely horrible, and the rest are close to unreadable. Give up your self entitled embarrassment, although I don’t know if CB wants you or not. Myself and friends read this site and others, briefly for semi-relevant philly sports talk. The comments section is philly to mankind…lol fire Jim , traffic girl, and Kyle you say, lol ms.cb but you frequent the site…then you are embarrassing yourself, you pathetic loser

      1. How many times you gonna paste this same douchy lame diatribe in the comments?
        “Me and my friends try to come here for sports talk and you’re all RUINING IT!!
        Eat a dick brah

      2. @Jay- you fucking bitch ass bitch. Shut the fuck up and man up. This is a site for fucked up shit. Not some wine cooler drinking ass shit like your comment. fuck off.

  18. Is Jim judging an Arcade Fire cover band contest or something this weekend? Now we have two lazy pasters.

    1. You must be new here. This establishment does not offer week-end hours.

      Please stop by Monday morning..make sure it is after 10, due to “late start Mondays”, for Your Monday Round-up. You won’t be disappointed…..well, you probably will be.

  19. Percent chance that Kyle’s wife is getting DP’d by a pair of waitstaff at this moment?

  20. Grim calm down man and have a drink. Better yet have a few, pass out, and don’t wake up until tomorrow morning for work. Christ ease up on people.

  21. Jesus. Now people are losing their minds. This is the worst comments section I’ve ever see.. What happened to intelligent sports debate?

  22. Jay when does anyone come to this site for anything Intelligent you fairy. This site is ran by losers and the only good thing about it is to light everybody up on the comment section.

    So Jim go fuck yourself you fruit

  23. I meant to end with jay but wrote jim, but he can go F off too. And he biggest joke of them all Kyle you clown, I can’t wait till this fad of a site passes and you need to get a real job you cocky Villanova stuck up shit.

    Suck one jay

  24. What kind of site doesn’t post on weekends, sports don’t stop on sat and Sunday you yuppie assholes, deadspin post stories all weekend long that’s why they have a huge national following and not just losers from one city.

    Kyle and Jim how hard is it to click copy and paste a couple of times on the weekend, what the hell could you be doing that you don’t have two minutes
