WHERE IS ROY HALLADAY?!?!?!?!


So sometime overnight Roy Halladay (of whom the world's foremost website about wanting to go to the zoo with Roy Halladay-- I Want to Go to the Zoo with Roy Halladay (www.zoowithroy.com)-- refers) tweeted this:




That naturally got me to wondering where Roy could actually be. "Nothing good happens after midnight" and "time zones" ... the possibilities for location and activity are endless! Luckily, my sources were able to capture a few photos from Roy's night. Keep in mind that this likely only represents a small portion of the evening.

Well, he certainly is a baller. Checks out.

Paul Holmgren, POWER


INTERIOR - WELLS FARGO CENTER - NHL DRAFT

The arena is buzzing with excitement and energy, as the 2014 NHL Draft has finally arrived. Executives sit at tables crowding the floor where a short time ago there was ice. Prospects and their families wait with anticipation in the bleachers for the culmination of lifelong dreams with the announcement of their names. Mothers and sons will embrace, newly-minted players will exchange firm handshakes with general managers and owners on-stage. On that stage central to the festivities.


Suddenly the PA System blasts Kanye West's "Power". The building goes black. Paul Holmgren, unannounced, strides confidently to the podium, a single spotlight’s glare focused solely on his giant square head.

A Thorough New York Rangers Scouting Report


Hey there, kids. It's NHL playoff  time once again (plus the Flyers actually made it), and you know what that means -- the return or Zoo With Roy's thorough scouting reports. Joining me today is the legendary Cranekicker, who was kind enough to help with preparing the following analytic take on the blueshirts. He's the Hexy to my Homer... or something like that.

Also, here's a picture of the Legion of Doom just because.

Handy #Flyers Trade Deadline Image


Hey there kids. Today is the NHL trading deadline, and chances are your favorite team is the Flyers. The Flyers are, well ... the Flyers. Always buying, always pressing, always dealing-- sometimes not too worried about things like draft picks or roster construction. Case in point: yesterday they traded 2nd and 3rd round picks for a defenseman in the last year of his contract whose primary skill is blocking shots. He's the ninth defenseman on the roster!

Today may see the orange and black land three more defensemen or two more centers. Who knows? But who cares! It's the Flyers, and we love them, and we're going to support our boys. As such, here's a handy graphic for you to use on the Twitter or Factbook or whatever dorkface message board you'll be arguing on later with Penguins, Red Wings, and Blackhawks fans. Whenever they mention Stanley Cups or salary caps, you just shut them up with this bad boy.


Boom. Burn roasted.

Check the first installation in this series here


ZWR: Never in the history of Philadelphia has there been an athlete named Ilkka who captured the attention-- and hearts-- of its fans like former Flyer Ilkka Sinisalo. A native of Valkeakoski, Finland, Ilkka Antero Jouko Sinisalo played four seasons with Idrottsföreningen Kamraterna i Helsingfors of SM-liiga before joining the orange & black in 1981.

Philadelphia Flyers Unveil New Logo



Hot on the heels of an embarrassing seven goal loss and amidst persistent denial that the organization has a "culture problem" the Philadelphia Flyers today announced, strangely, a brand new corporate identity.

"We feel this new logo represents what Philadelphia Flyers hockey is all about," said General Manager Paul Holmgren, barely holding off a yawn.

Reading a prepared statement dictator Ed Snider claimed, without a hint of irony in his voice, "This new, totally original and inspired identity best embodies our values as a club and  the rich tradition we put forth each time we take the ice. It will be a wonderful visual symbol for our fans to mindlessly rally around for years to come."

Please Sign This Petition to Make 'Whoomp There It Is' the Flyers Goal Song


Change.org is filled with all kinds of whiny dorkbeak political stuff, but finally* there's a petition on there worth supporting and lending your name to. Craney made me aware of it, and it's the work of my homeslice Estemomb over at Flyers Faithful. As he cogently explains:
There is one solution and that is Whoomp. 
Why a 1993 rap song? Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s the only song with the proper attitude to bring the Flyers out of their current funk. Let’s take a look at these extremely relevant lyrics: 
Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a  
Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a 
Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a 
Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a
Seriously that's a great point so GO SIGN IT HERE!!!!!


* Well at least since that Eagles kelly green one

Big hugs to my boy CK. This one's yours, baby.

Flyers 2013 Season Preview


Another hockey season is upon us, and we couldn't hope for a more exciting start. The Flyers open things up against their arch rivals- the Pittsburgh Penguins- on Saturday at the Wells Fargle Bargle.

A refresher for those who may have fallen out of the hockey rhythm during the lockout: The Penguins are evil scumbags. On top of that, they represent everything that's wrong about professional sports and a general lack of character. They stunk forever, then got to draft Mario Lemieux. Then they stunk for half a decade again, only this time on purpose. Then they were bankrupt and couldn't even pay Lemieux so he got to own the team (kind of like when your senior year roommate couldn't pay his share of the rent so you got to keep his Xbox). Then they couldn't build their own arena and tried to move to Kansas City. Then they took a hand-out like the shameless pigs that they are. Then Sidney Crosby drew seven interference penalties a game for five years. Then the team they assembled by tanking got better and made it to the Stanley Cup Finals, and the league made up new rules for automatic suspensions and how many players are allowed on the ice and the Detroit Red Wings got screwed out of what should have been another fairly-earned cup. Some say it's because the commissioner needed to validate the years of cheating the league invested in its soulless, welfare franchise. I have to agree. Ummmm ... then we owned them last year in the playoffs because the Flyers are everything that's right about hockey and the Penguins repeated attempts at injuring our players after realizing they had no chance limply failed. All caught up? Here's a gif!
