First, let’s give credit where credit is due: Philadelphia has the greatest cheesesteaks in the f*cking world. There’s nothing better than shredded up meat covered in Cheez Wiz and topped with sautéed onions. I’m literally drooling just thinking about.
With that being said, we can now get to the point: despite the amazing delicacy, the city offers some of the worst sports fans in the world. Not only are they rude, but they’re sore losers and prone to beating the sh*t out of people for no reason after a bad game. So the fact that something happened during last night’s Flyers game is less than surprising. But honestly, we didn’t think the diehard sports fans would stoop this low.
So, let’s back up — everyone who attended last night’s game got light-up wristbands designed to honor the late Ed Snider.
Seems relatively harmless, right? I mean, the man was a key member in the Philadelphia Flyers’ history. Fans should at least respect that, regardless of how much alcohol they guzzled before the game. But alas, not even a moment of silence could go down properly… which should indicate how awful the night progressed.
Yikes, alright. But of course, it got worse. Like, way way worse. After a string of calls deemed questionable by Flyers fans, attendees started throwing their bracelets onto the ice.
One a**hole even threw one directly at Dmitry Orlov, a Washington Capitols player who was receiving medical attention on the bench after getting his head slammed into the boards.
WTF really?! Only in Philadelphia.
