There are certain things I try to stay away from when writing for this website, like using any type of racial slur, complimenting Cindy Crybaby, or defending Andy Reid. Working Nazis into my posts is also typically on this list but I guess Mike Boone sees things a bit differently.
An exerpt from his blog post on The Gazette’s “Habs Inside/Out” blog:
“There’s not a franchise in sports I hate more than the Philadlphia Flyers.” [Ed Note - Misspelling is on his end, not mine. It's called spell check, genius]
“Not the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Not the New York Yankees.
Not the Dallas Cowboys or L.A. Lakers.
No, you’d have to have an Olympic Games flashback to 1936 and watch the pride of Hitler’s Germany marching into the Berlin stadium to match the feeling of revulsion I experience every time I see the Flyers play.
Especially against the Canadiens.”
Comparing your hatred of maniacs who murdered millions of Jews to watching a hockey team play…classy! Now I get that Mr. Boone doesn’t appreciate our team’s physical style of play, but I’d take watching a hard-hitting team over a crappy under-performing clutch and grab group like the Canadiens any day. I’d also expect a bit more professionalism out of a guy writing for a actual newspaper’s sports blog.
“There is no way these cheap-shot thugs are taking two Ws in as many nights.”
Doesn’t this comment just reek of something you’d read in the comments of an ESPN.com story? I guess four Montreal players throwing punches and tackling Chris Pronger at the end of yesterday’s game wasn’t “cheap” then Mike? The Flyers clearly weren’t the only team getting rough on the ice at the Wach last night.
If you hate watching the Flyers play so much Mr. Boone, I suggest you change the channel, keep your idiotic opinions to yourself, and shut the hell up.
