Flyers Will Not Play in the Winter Classic After All

Voila_Capture884

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.

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

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

      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.

      Jackass.

        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.

          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.

          Jackass.

    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.

    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.

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.
