1975 Syndrome Penguins vs. Flyers – The New Cold War

By DX Traeger (@PolemicLicense)

Who would you root for: the Flyers, or the Russians?

Of course I, like every hockey fan outside of Philadelphia, hate the Flyers. When I attended the 2011 Winter Classic between the Penguins and the Capitals, our rival fanbases could agree on nothing…until someone started a “F-THE-FLYERS!” chant, and all 68,111 fans joined in unison. (more…)

Sid or Ovi The Face of the NHL: Crosby or Ovechkin

Ever since their rookie seasons, NHL superstars Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin have waged a fierce and often-times personal battle to be number one.  Despite their mutual successes, when the league brass at the NHL offices in Toronto sat down to choose a player to serve as the face of the NHL, their decision was simple: Alexander Ovechkin scores goals, but Sidney Crosby scores goals and doesn’t look like a mutant.

These two bitter rivals will once again face-off in Pittsburgh, less than 48-hours after the Penguins captain took a puck to the face. Throughout his career, Crosby has overcome head-rattling concussions and teeth-shattering collisions, so Pens coach Dan Bylsma is confident that his star will once again bounce back. (more…)

Ray Lewis How do the Baltimore Ravens replace Ray Lewis?

By DX Traeger (@PolemicLicense)

When Ray Lewis finished his NFL career at the Super Bowl, he left the only franchise he ever knew with gaping wounds at the linebacker and leadership positions. Still, if you believe Baltimore GM Ozzie Newsome, the answer to finding the “next” Ray Lewis is simpler than one might expect.

Styx An Open Letter To Pirates Ownership

To Whom It May Concern:
As true fans of your beloved organization, we are concerned that with the team’s recent success, there is also the potential for a catastrophic downturn in gameday promotions. With playoff hopes high for the first time in two decades, and on-the-field performance attracting large crowds, the need for post-game concerts, bicentennial-grade firework shows, and running pierogies will decrease significantly.

A Day in the Life of a Pens Fan

A story inspired by true events…

I was having a rough day. It didn’t start off well since I “Shaved my face with a rusty razor”, so I decided to head out to the local bar. I figured I would “Call Arnold Slick from Turtle Creek” because I owed him a drink. (more…)
