I figured since Paul Holmgren plays fantasy hockey, I would go with the Flyers’ strategy for my team– overspend on a goalie, bring back ex-forwards, and completely ignore the defense. Maybe it will work in faksies land:

Video: Rob Zombie Talks About “Broad Street Bullies” Movie

Rob Zombie was in Philly and went to the Flyers game last night to do some background work for his upcoming Broad Street Bullies movie. He took pictures with Bernie Parent, Bob Kelly and Gary Dornhoefer, met with reporters, and was a guest on Daily News Live.

What Zombie had to say about the movie: The script is mostly finished and the plot is character-driven. Zombie(?) said there were so many interesting stories on the Bullies that little poetic license needed to be taken to produce an interesting script. Filming will begin as early as this fall, in Philadelphia, and the movie will take roughly two years to complete. The story will begin at a sparsely-attended parade introducing the Flyers to Philadelphia in 1967 and end with the first Stanley Cup parade, attended by two million people. No word on who the actors will be, but Zombie said he’s been getting texts from Philly-based actors who want to be in it (hello, David Boreanaz). 

Zombie grew up a Bruins fan in Boston, but claims he always liked the Flyers (I bet) and that his favorite player is Bobby Clarke. He said he got some additional – likely NSFW – tidbits from the Bullies last night and may include those in the script.

Rob Zombie Will Be at the Flyers Game Tomorrow Night Doing Background for His Broad Street Bullies Movie

Kyle Scott - February 4, 2013

We told you about this in June (holy shit, time flies)– Rob Zombie is writing, directing and producing a movie about the Broad Street Bullies, called, you guessed it, Broad Street Bullies. Tomorrow, he’ll be at the Flyers-Lightning game doing some background work for the film (though one could argue that research time would be better spent in the loins of a 1970s jersey chaser on the side of a Marlton highway), according to Flyers super secret website insider Anthony SanFilippo.

We’re assuming that Mr. Zombie (I'm truly not sure how to refer to him) will meet with the media at some point. We’ll bring you all the details if and when he does. Wonder if he’ll bring the Dragula??

The folks over at Philly 2 Philly spoke to Zombie about the flick in July.

Introducing Broad Street Broad, a New Apparel Brand for Female Sports Fans

Kyle Scott - December 14, 2012

BSB Apparel Slide

Hey ladies, like Philly Phaithful’s selection of local sports gear but want something a bit more feminine? Fitted, if you will? Well! Good news: Broad Street Broad, PP’s new sister company, features a (growing) selection of branded apparel for women. Colors mirror those of our local sports teams, but BSB features entirely original designs on high-quality t-shirts, hoodies and more. From their website:

broad street broad is the newest destination for the women who support the hometown sports heroes in philadelphia, making this a top sports city in the country. we aim to put the female philly sports fan front and center. while there are no shortages of apparel/accessory options for men who love sports, there are very few–if any–companies dedicated solely to the female sports fan. considering the passion, knowledge and dedication of women in this town, that is a void that we are excited to fill. 


our focus is on both style and comfort. we'll offer the usual array of tees, tanks, hoodies etc., but broad street broad also focuses on a number of more unique sports-centric accessories currently unavailable to women: tote bags, tailgate aprons & sunglasses, all without leaning on the pink-centric and rhinestone-studded options currently saturating the market. nothing against pink, but we think female fans look good in other colors too. 

 

Tanks, sweatshirts, sweatpants, t-shirts, panties… everything you want and need, all in-stock, all reppin' the P. I'll be picking up something like this for Ms. CB:

NHL Dickishly Releases National TV Schedule, Briere Offers His Two Cents on the CBA

Ryan Gillon - August 30, 2012

Bettman

A smirk that could piss off any hockey fan.

As the September 15 deadline lingers, the NHL put out the 2012-13 national television schedule. As Travis Hughes of Broad Street Hockey points out, the Flyers have 25 games on the U.S. schedule.

Because I'm fairly confident the NHL won't begin until mid-December or so (the NHL won't put the Winter Classic in jeopardy), I'm putting the over/under at 15.

Yeah, the NHL needs to conduct business as usual, but is anyone really trying to hear this right now? Especially considering that the chances that a good number of these games won't be played, it's just another thing to infuriate hockey fans… it's working.

Adam Proteau of The Hockey News put it better than I could:

 

Danny Briere doesn't seem really confident in a new CBA either. CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio fired this series of tweets earlier while at the Flyers Skate Zone:

 

Six players, zero optimism… exactly what every hockey fan wants to hear. The NHL and the Players Association won't meet today after the league tweaked their proposal, but could get together tomorrow.

When I say "tweaked", what I really mean is the league took an intially shitty proposal, and made it a little less shitty. Changing a few words, throwing a few mill back at the players, and trying to set a $58 million cap (down from over $70 million) isn't going to fly. 

Countdown continues: 16 days.
