I'm a Flyers hockey fan ... and folks, this past weekend was absolutely tremendous!!! Probably the greatest come-from-behind series win in American sports history (Sure, we can argue the Red Sox win over the Yankees might be better, but I'm a Philadelphian, and this is my blog post, darn-it!).
Anyway, game 7 of this series was held in Boston. However, the Wachovia Center in Philly opened it's doors and showed the game on the big-screen for free. My question is ... is this dope or nope - watching a game that's not being played in said arena on the big screen?
I'm on the fence about this ... I mean, I guess it's cool to be with so many other fans in one spot ... but couldn't this be accomplished at a bar? Speaking of which, with so many fans (around 11,000) packed in that arena, are the bars pissed because they didn't have as many patrons?
They kept going back to the Wachovia Center after every Flyers goal and showed the reaction of the fans ... I found that very cool.
So, what are your thoughts?
