Philadelphia With a P.

Philadelphia…With a P.


Philadelphia sports fans have long been regarded as the worst as far as being rude and obnoxious. These are the people that booed Santa Claus as they pelted him with snowballs when he appeared at an Eagles game. How many people didn’t get the bike or the puppy they wanted for Christmas? What else could cause that kind of hatred toward Jolly Saint Nick? Oh, besides being an obnoxious jerk.

You probably already heard about their latest obnoxious episode that occurred at Sunday’s playoff game between the Flyers and Penguins. The story is that somebody placed photos of Sidney Crosby inside every urinal at Wells-Fargo Center.

Sidney Crosby has long been arch enemy number one for Flyers Fans. They wear “Crosby Sucks” shirts and chant,

“Crosby Sucks!’

He is also referred to as Cindy Crosby and called a baby.

What I want to know is, what was actually accomplished with the urinal photos? First of all, Crosby didn’t even know about it and if he did, it didn’t affect him. He had a wraparound goal to open the scoring and then added three assists.

I mean, aside from some sick individual fulfilling a twisted and perverted fantasy. You know, where he gets to stick his hand in every urinal in the arena. Besides that, what was really accomplished?

Why would somebody come up with a stunt that involves sticking your hand in pee? There’s no way that hand is ever going to feel clean again. No matter how much you wash and scrub, you will always know where it’s been. It may have started already to this guy. During the game, did the mustard on his pretzel begin to bother him? …And that’s an actual question about a pretzel, not a euphemism.

I’m just assuming it was a man that did this because of the location. I guess it could have been a cleaning woman. Wouldn’t that be a kick in the groin? Come to think of it, it may have been a woman. Blocking the drain with the photo had to cause some sort of backlash situation. Any guy would know that.

This means that during intermissions, the corridors of Wells-Fargo, were filled with men in pee splattered pants talking about what a baby Sidney Crosby is.

Where will Crosby’s face end up tonight? On the toilet paper? On the feminine hygiene disposal box? They wouldn’t be so unoriginal as to do the urinal thing again?…That’s true, it is Philadelphia. If you’re a Penguins fan and you’re going to the game in Philly tonight, you may want to wear rubber pants.
