Jagr’s unusual answer to Flyers’ afternoon woes

With Saturday’s loss to the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia is now 3-8-2 in afternoon contests this season. If you expand that to all games that start before 7pm ET, their record is 5-10-2.

“Maybe we don’t like daylight,” suggested a grinning Jaromir Jagr.

The Philadelphia Flyers have another afternoon contest scheduled for Sunday. This time they’ll have their hands full with the surging Pittsburgh Penguins (12:30 pm ET, NBC). In fact, three of Philadelphia’s final 11 contests are scheduled to start before 7pm. With every point critical this late in the season, they’ll want to do better in games that take place while the sun is still up.

Perhaps the solution is emulating Twilight-styled Vampires instead of the more traditional kind. As far as I know, those ones merely sparkle when exposed to the light.

      This is what I mean about Eagle fans,,,,,,,,They have not won a Championship since 1960, and have N E V E R won a Super Bowl. But they continue to think that we care about what they think…Until you win a Super Bowl, I think all Eagle fans should be muted……

        When you cant tell the difference between hockey and football, its probably time to STFU.

    Dear num1eaglesfan (yo, is it?),
    This isn’t a shot at all Eagles, Flyers, or Phillies fans. It’s a shot at you. Personally, people of your limited intelligence shouldn’t even be permitted to OWN a computer, let alone log onto a website or blog (which, by the way, can you spell? B-L-O-G). Goodness knows your limited and low-brow attempts at being funny are indicative of your afore-mentioned low level of intelligence. So go find another nickel (so you have another one to rub with your existing one) and do everyone a favor: the next time you have a thought, keep it to yourself
