  1. Nick Price just won the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am!

    Now that that's over, can we cut the interviews short and end this crap so we can get the hockey game started?

  3. Woot! Flyers are sporting their throwback/alternates. Classic uniforms.

  5. Wow, I never realized that Edzo was Crosby's original coach. I'm sure he'll be perfectly unbias in this game....

    ReplyDelete
  6. The Flyers need to score first in this game and they need to score quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The Flyers are wearing some sweat sweaters.

    ReplyDelete
  8. It's a throwback that they've been using this season as their alternate jersey.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Flyers gotta stop turning the puck over like this.

    ReplyDelete
  10. SCORE!!!!!!!!!! JEFF CARTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1-0 FLYERS!!!!!!!!!!!

    THAT'S WHAT THEY NEEDED!!!!!! AND DAMN, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL GOAL THAT WAS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Just what the doctor ordered for the Flyers.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Power play coming up for the Flyers.

    ReplyDelete
  13. That's how you score on the Power Play Sharks.

    ReplyDelete
  14. SIMON GAGNE BURIES IT THROUGH FLEURY'S 5-HOLE!!!!!!!! SCORE FLYERS!!!!!!!! 2-0 PHILADELPHIA!!!!

    YES!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. The power play goal has been re-credited to Mike Richards. They say it bounced off a Penguin instead of Gagne.

    AND IT'S BREAKING DOWN IN THE WACHOVIA CENTER!!! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

    "Why do I feel younger again?" - Doc Emrick

  16. I hope that none of the Flyers in that penalty box are claustrophobic...

    ReplyDelete
  17. For the first time in a long time, both penalty boxes are empty.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Malkin scores and the Penguins pull within 1 with seconds to go in the period!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Scuderi scores for the Pens and right off the bat this game is tied at 2! Wow, that's not what the Flyers needed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Flyers all of a sudden are looking real flat.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That was beautiful by the Flyers.

    ReplyDelete
  22. AS SOON AS I SAY THAT CLAUDE GIROUX SCORES!!!!!!!!! 3-2 FLYERS!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. "That one ricocheted off the noggin of Fleury." - Doc Emrick

    Gotta love Doc!

    ReplyDelete
  24. There is just something about these interstate battles. Both teams just hate each other.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Off-topic, but I was so caught up with the Flyers that I lost sight of the Phillies, and well, I wouldn't I, they were losing 4-0. Well, it turns out that they came back and Raul Ibanez hit a 2-run walk-off in the 9th. Phils win 5-4.

    ReplyDelete
  26. SCORE!!!!!!! SHORT-HANDED BY SIMON GAGNE!!!!!!!! BUT HOLY COW.....WHAT AN EFFORT BY CLAUDE GIROUX!!!!!!!!!

    And Gagne's keeping this one! No question about who knocked it in this time.

    And that's the first short-handed goal this post-season.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Speaking of baseball. Tim Lincecum struck out 13 batters yesterday and the Giants still lost 2-0.

    That's the Giants offense for you.

    BTW, GOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!!!!!
    4-2 FLYERS

  28. "Back part of your screen, here he comes." - Eddie Olczyk

  29. "Hardly anybody comes back from 3 [games] down." - Mike Milbury

    Let's see.....in the history of the NHL that's only happened twice. Milbury's statement = understatement of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  30. JARED ROSS SCORES!!!! 5-2 FLYERS!!!

    WHOOHOO!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Malkin scores for the Pens on the power play!

    Flyers still lead, though, only now it's 5-3.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ha! NBC just aired a replay which featured a very visible fan giving a very visible middle finger to Sidney Crosby.

    ReplyDelete
  33. SIMON GAGNE ICES IT WITH AN EMPTY NETTER FROM THE RED LINE! FLYERS WIN 6-3 AND THEY WON'T GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT IN THIS SERIES!

    Over to the Sixers now....

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just wanted to let you know, I am sending a producer e-mail for the Sharks-Ducks live blog. So it's on the table for you, if you are around tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well done to the Flyers!

    It's probably their only win of the series. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'll be around for most of the night, probably, so I'll join you.

    It's probably their only win of the series. ;-)If the Flyers can avoid the stupid penalties but continue to play with the intensity that they did today, they can make this a very interesting series. The 2 games that they were there in more than just the physical sense, they played the Penguins tough. It's that showing up part and avoiding the stupid penalties that they have to make sure they do.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The guy singing the anthems in the Blues game got booed. He was awful.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Damn, I missed it. I love laughing at awful singing.

    ReplyDelete
  39. BACKES SCORES FOR THE HOMETOWN TEAM!! 1-0 ST. LOUIS!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nice to see you keeping a positive attitude, SSR. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. What's positive about this start?

    Couple this with Man Utd losing this morning in the FA Cup semifinal and this is a crap Sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Rough. So far, this has been a really good Sunday for Philadelphia. Raul Ibanez had a 2-run homerun walk-off for the Phils and the Flyers demolished the Pens.

    The Sixers are currently losing by 15, but 2 out of 3 ain't bad. ;-)

    /Meatloaf'd.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Slightly off-topic, but Philadelphia has gone 3 for 3 on the day.

    Phillies 5-4
    Flyers 6-3
    Sixers 100-98.

    WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!!!

    And what a chance there for the Canucks! SSR must have had a heart attack watching how close that was...

    ReplyDelete
  44. OHLUND SCORES!!! AND THE CANUCKS HAVE TIED IT AT 1!

    ReplyDelete
  45. "He does not believe in momentum but he clearly does not have it now." - Jim Hughson on the Blues head coach, Andy Murray.

    ReplyDelete
  46. OHLUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Great game in Orlando, BTW. Philly played well and made a great comeback.

    ReplyDelete
  47. DANIEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2-1!!!!! COME ON YA CANUCKS!!!!!!!1

    ReplyDelete
  48. 5-on-3 for the Canucks.

    Yeah, I saw the Sixers comeback. And you can see my Gus Johnson-esque comments section of the NBA open thread just under this one ;-)

    AND THE CANUCKS SCORE AGAIN!!! DANIEL SEDIN!!!! 2-1 VANCOUVER!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Of course. Exciting stuff always happens when I step out for 5 minutes. It's pretty much a fact of life.

    ReplyDelete
  50. You guys aren't going to believe this, but Nathan Brice has invaded Fanhouse's live blog of the Atlanta-Miami game.

    ReplyDelete
  51. DETAILS!

    Username? Is he a sports reporter from Miami again? Wow.....not even the Fanhouse Boys are immuned from the world's biggest online douchebag troll.

    Do they know he's a d-bag or have they not caught on to him yet?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Nathan is pretending to be other commentators on the live blog. So there has been kind of a fight between everyone leaving comments. The Fanhouse boys have started banning people though.

    He is a d-bag. He even used my name a couple of times. So I had to switch my commenting name to Keith D.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a douche bag. He wants the trouble and the fights.

    LAROSE SCORES!!!! AND THE CANES HAVE TIED IT AT 2!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. CANUCKS SCORE!!!!! And SSR is giddy!!!

    I missed who got it....I was watching the Devils-Canes stream when randomly checked to see if the Canucks game had return just to see the Canucks celebrating a 3-2 lead.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Toronto FC loses 3-2. I watched that game instead of the Canucks and TFC rallied from 2-0 down to tie it at 2-2....only to lose with 5 minutes to go.


    FIRE JOHN CARVER!!!!!!


    *Switches to Canucks game*


    YAY!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Link to the live blog please 49er16!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Bernier scored for the 3rd goal for the Canucks, in case you were curious and did not know.

    /Just looked it up.

  59. Seeing as I have not been watching much of Versus this year, I really don't know if it's true or not, but I was reading a post from Steve Lepore over at Puck The Media (a blog that's quickly becoming a new favorite of mine; I'll be adding it to my blogroll once I stop being lazy) and he was giving the Vs. crews fairly high marks this year and complimented them a lot, especially the team of Rick Peckham and Daryl Reaugh. I listened to Peckham a bit last year and I did not like him at all.

    ReplyDelete
  60. The Canucks hang on to win Game 3, 3-2 and they have a 3-0 series lead over the Blues!

    The Canucks are a team that can go real deep in this Stanley Cup Playoffs.

    ReplyDelete
  61. YES!! WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm currently over at Keith's Sports Journal for his live blog of the Ducks-Sharks game. As always, I'll have more open threads back up tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Sorry for cutting the blog off early, I had some work I had to do that I forgot about.
