Eurovision Song Contest 2014 Final Preview!!!

8

Eurovision, the best thing on this great planet, is back!

It Ends.

507

In which the Flyers lose and so now it's over.

LET'S PLAY ONE MORE

59

In which it was "do or die" and the Flyers chose "do," thankfully.

HENRIK LUNDQVIST IS UGLY

47

No, really, actually. There's definitive proof.

Game 5: Flaccid Flyers Flail, Rangers Roll

146

In which the Flyers started losing early and kept losing the whole way oh well.

Much Better Yet Much Worse Somehow

73

In which everything got fixed except all the stuff that was still broken and the Flyers lost.

EASTER RESURRECTION

158

On the third day the Flyers rose again, in fulfillment of the scriptures.

AKEY BREAKY FART

101

Because it's all fun and games until you smack a Swedish guy in the mouth and then lose.

WOLF OF THE SOCHI

1

Wolf + Latvia = Olympics = Straight gold baby = LET'S DO THIS SHIT

Also, Jeffie!

LOSE-IPEG: Jets 3, Flyers 2 (SO)

56

This time the Flyers didn't win and the other guys did instead.

SCHENN BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND: Flyers 2, Penguins 1

131

The Flyers just keep on winning for some reason you guys! Hooray!

REACHAROUNDS FOR EVERYBODY!: Flyers 5, Senators 0

90

The Flyers won convincingly and made sure everybody had a fun night!

Every Rosehill has its goalhorn

178

Under the brilliant leadership of Jay Rosehill, the Flyers won a hockey game! Also Claude Giroux remembered how to score, finally.

Eurovision 2013 Preview Spectacular!

15

In which Ben Rothenberg could never leave you unprepared for what lies ahead on the twisted road that is the Eurovision Song Contest.

Hey everybody! ... and the Flyers won and stuff!

128

In which the Flyers won but it probably didn't mean all that much and hey look Ben is back!

Why can't the Flyers get drunk like the Orioles?

10

A baseball team that never wins anything has celebrated more in the past weeks than the Flyers have in the past 20 years. What gives?

Bittersweet Wolfony: Oskars Bartulis scored his first goal in the KHL yesterday, and thereby currently leads all 2011-12 Flyers in scoring this season in the global charts. We always knew he would steal the show.

DYNAMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DYNAMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bought Out Like the Wolf: Goodbye, Oskars Bartulis

151

As the Flyers are wont to do, they today again ditched the player who has been with the organization the longest. Oskars Bartulis was bought out and sent off the premises with some $500,000 in cash...

Naturally, while watching baseball, it's very important to keep your lips nice and soft for...Jeff Carter? I'm mostly just impressed they got the right Kings logo this time.

ECSF GAME 5: DEVILS AT FLYERS THIRD PERIOD THREAD What could well be the last 20 minutes of one of the strangest Flyers seasons in memory. Try to enjoy it.

ECSF GAME 5: DEVILS AT FLYERS SECOND PERIOD THREAD Flyers wanted to score more? They did, with three first period goals by Talbot, Simmonds, and Bryzgalov. Unfortunately the last two of those were into the wrong net and the Flyers trail 2-1. Also, Bat Shit Crazy is doing some big things. And there's so much unnecessary passing I thought I was watching Hoosiers. At least there's some energy. And for the love of God, shut up about Martin Brodeur's age when he's been a non-factor in this series.
