Flyers Fans Drink Vengeance



So I rode up to Philly this morning with Mike Wise, choosing Caps and the possible bodily harm inflicted on Mike Wise over Wizards and the possible bodily harm inflicted on DeShawn Stevenson. Wise makes for better copy.

Haven't seen any Flyers fans just yet, but we did listen to a bit of Philly sports talk radio. Managed to hear the Caps referred to as "Filthy Russkies," Sergei Fedorov referred to as "Sir-Gay," plus some sort of "Better dead than red" reference. Brotherly Love, indeed.

Meanwhile, over at the Flyers message board--from where I've been criticized for "plagiarism" for quoting an anonymous fan anonymously--the fans are now criticizing Comcast SportsyNet for having the gall to defend Mike Wise. If all this doesn't end with Mike Wise stripping off his shirt and throwing down his pens in the face of some columnist from the Philly Daily News, I'll be sorely disappointed.

Mr. Steinberg... could you do us all a big favor and explain exactly where this asinine "Vengeance Now" slogan came from? I mean, are Philly fans holding a grudge against anyone or anything in particular, or does "Vengeance" just sound 'bad-ass' to them? Your diligent research into the issue would be much appreciated. Thanks, and good luck tonight. All the best to Mike Wise as well... let us know if we need to contact a priest or something for his Last Rites.

If they hate then let 'em hate and watch the money pile up.

I agree wit 50. Although, contrary to the what is stated in the Flyers thread, I don't want to go to anyone's house and strip for them. Good find, Steinz.

It is my understanding that "Vengeance Lager" is just another name for that Philly Piss in a bottle, Yuengling. I mean what else do you drink in Philly, the sewer/anus of the USA.

M-Wise takes on all comers! He's like Agt. Steinz's evil alter ego!

Wait--is Vengeance Lager their version of Montezuma's Revenge? And if so, why are they, themselves, drinking it? Oh, wait again--it's Philly. (Not that I'm casting aspersions at ALL Philly denizens, just the, oh, well, nevermind.)
