Damn, I want to believe Flyers fans are this committed. Here's the last letter from Bill Simmons's mailbag today:

A couple of weeks ago at a frat party, I began to get with a pretty cute girl. As the night wore on, and the drinks started flowing, she took me back to her apartment. When I entered her room, the first thing I saw was a giant Sidney Crosby poster. Without saying another word to her, I left. My buddies have never stopped making fun of me since, but I still insist that it was the proudest moment of my life as a die-hard Flyers fan. Can you please give me some consolidation, or should I have just swallowed my pride? In my defense, I would not qualify her as "hot."

--Dave Z., Philly

Love it, regardless if it's true or not.

  1. I call bullfeathers on this story. Any sports geek lucky enough to cross the threshold of a girl's place would more likely faint than turn around and leave.


  2. "Bullfeathers"? Is this one of those 613 colloquialisms that I have yet to come across?

  3. We also would have accepted "Bullroar", "Horsepuckies" and "Darren Dreger".

  4. Consolidation? What, is he asking to be part of a merger or something? Oh Philly fans. Never change.


  5. If you can not be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.............................................


  6. The last time I checked, my name was not Dave Z. (sigh)
