Here in Philadelphia, we absolutely hate the Pittsburgh Penguins and their star Sidney Crosby. We do not try and hide it, we chant "Crosby Sucks" all game. We know he does not suck, but we hate him. Flyers fans and we assume hockey fans alike, hate watching the Pittsburgh Penguins play on NBC.
Watching the love fest that Pierre McGuire and NBC over Dan Bylsma and the Pens is sickening. Maybe we are just hurt that the Flyers lineup isn't as strong as theirs. I wonder if Penguins fans feel like they are loved by NBC?
After the Penguins game 3 overtime win versus the New York Islanders, Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick had some interesting input on the final penalty call. Sidney Crosby, or as the blog below refers to him as "Master Shredder", skated in from the corner and was "held". A penalty was called on the play, giving the Penguins a powerplay, which wound up giving them the 2-1 series lead.
Both Roenick and Milbury felt that the penalty should not have been called. The NBC analyst felt that Crosby is such a strong skater, that he should have never fell. Whether you agree with the call or not, the following link is the purpose of this post. The Penguins Blog claims that NBC is doing it wrong.
Please follow this link, and for comic relief purposes read the comments. By the way, before you say anything Penguin fans, we know the Flyers didn't make the playoffs.
