Wah!

So many posts today! But the good stuff keeps rolling in.

A bar in Philly called Nodding Hill is serving a beer called Crosby Tears:

CROSBY TEARS – $6.50 : STRONG ALE (8.7%ABV)… WHINE-LIKE IN “HONOR” OF ITS NAMESAKE… ORANGE HUED LIKE THE TEAM THAT SENT HIM HOME FOR THE SUMMER… THE PERFECT COMPLEMENT TO A PLAYOFF RUN

I can’t even retort that, it’s so genius. I wish a local bar had thought to have a Brady Tears beer. I’d be drunk ALL THE TIME IN EVERY WAY FOR EVER AFTER AMEN.

But, yeah, my hate grows. My kingdom to the person who brings me any Flyer’s balls on a stick.

    Too bad they have to ask Sidney for a Cup to drink it out of, since they don’t have one of their own.

  2. Mark W:

    We have two

  3. Cloreen B.:

    Yeah, but they’re almost 40 years old at this point.

    I’m thinking there aren’t many current roster Flyers that were even alive when there was a cup to drink from in Philly.

  4. Joe K.:

    We have three.

    BAM

    A cup is a cup. Please don’t try to diminish the the importance of Lord Stanley’s Cup by calling it old. It’s magnificence is timeless.

  7. Pensgirl:

    Exactly.

  8. Pensgirl:

    And he sent THEM packing to get his.

  9. Cloreen B.:

    HA…of course the cup ‘win’ is what I was referring to as old. As in too old to matter when discussing the current crop of Flyers. I would imagine the majority of the rings that are currently on your roster have Pens logos on them.

    The only appropriate thing to say to a Flyers fan is “Shhhhhhhh.”

    Why isn’t it

    Ask your grandparents what a Cup victory parade looks like. Or someone from Pittsburgh.

  13. unsatisfied:

    at a 3 games to 1 deficit, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that will be renamed as “giroux’s tears” very shortly.

  14. Leslie:

    One would have to actually possess balls in order to skewer them.

  15. Steelman:

    Flyers eliminated! Flyers eliminated! Crosby is now shedding “tears” of joy. A Philly bakery will now be featuring the “Bryz Turnover”.

  16. Steelman:

    For your viewing delight! The “Bryz Turnover”

    Doesn’t Max Talbot get a permanent pass from Penguin fans’ testicle skewering?
