Weekend Rev

It is often said that I only show up when I have a new blog posting at my blog, or if a Philadelphia team wins a big game.

I'd like to amend that now. Whenever a Philly team gets this close to appearing in a major championship series, not only do I show up, but you also get a full-fledged weekend posting.

I'm Rev, bitch! It's a celebration!

Don't worry... this will not be a Phillies fueled post. I'll share other stuff.

- I love the fact that the owner of the Philadelphia Flyers thinks that fans of his team will be influenced in any way by Sarah Palin showing up at tonight's Flyers game to drop the ceremonial first puck.

Now, the fact that Ed Snider is apparently a far right wing guy doesn't even bother me. He can be whatever he wants as long as his teams win. But the thought process into doing this has to be a little flawed.

Up until now, Sarah Palin has pretty much been in public in front of crowds that were guaranteed to be favorable to her. This will be the first time that she is exposed to the potential of major booing at the introduction of her name. They don't just let Republican fans into Flyers games.

Ed Snider thinks this appearance is a good idea for some reason.

I'm not bringing this up to bash her. There will be plenty of time for that later. I'm just wondering what the reaction will be. She'll probably get a favorable ovation from many in the crowd. But I'm guessing there will be some Philly attitude thrown in. It will be interesting to see if the boos outweigh the cheers.

I'll say it too. I'm guessing she will look pretty hot dropping that puck

- I'll even give you a few photos today. But none of them will be of the head of my penis.

(Insert the "when was the last time you even saw the head of your penis you fat bastard joke" here)

Earlier this week, the aforementioned Flyers held what will be their last appearance in the old Philadelphia Spectrum. It was an exhibition game against their AHL team, the Phantoms. It brought back more than a few memories.

The Flyers left the Spectrum for what is now the Wachovia Center about 12 years ago. But the Specturm stayed active for minor league events and concerts. Now, they will be tearing it down sometime next year to put up a big shopping and entertainment complex.

I went to many events at the Spectrum in my day, and always loved the place. But now, after being spoiled by the Wachovia Center, I came to realize that the Spectrum was pretty cramped. I mean, goddman the place was too small.

I don't know how all of us fat Philadelphians put up with the joint for so long.

I made it through two and a half periods of the game in seats that were three inches too small for my ass. I went down to get a hot dog and a drink halfway through the first period in the main concourse. It took a good 15 minutes just to get that hot dog with only a few people in line because they apparently hire minor league servers at the Spectrum and send the fast people over to the Wachovia Center. Then, I get stuck in the between period traffic in the concourse which is jam packed with people. Bottom line... a trip for a hot dog and soda took well over a half an hour.

Imagine this... the Spectrum has three levels of seating. All of those levels of seating feed into one main concourse. Not an upper level concourse for the upper level seating and a lower level for the lower level seating. That would have made too much sense. No, all 17,000 fans have to filter into the main concourse, which ain't too wide to begin with.

Don't even bother going to the can. The Spectrum I think has only 4 total restroom areas if I remember correctly for all 17,000 people. All of us Philly fans have stories of waiting a half an hour just to take a leak there. Many women have gone to use the men's room in frustration, and many men have let them walk in.

And for some unknown goddman reason, I'm gonna miss the place.

But I'm not gonna miss it at the same time, cause the Wachovia Center is so much more comfy.

Just a few photos of the experience...


The building in what is left of all of her glory.

The view from my seats, and did I mention those seats were at least three inches too small for my big ass?

I'll save you the trouble...

There have been over 2 million cheesesteaks eaten by Rev since 1972.

*fixed

By the way... there is no Jumbotron screen in the Spectrum. Just a regular old scoreboard. No replays or anything. Old school all the way.

This is the concourse while the game is still going on. Then, 10 minutes later during intermission it turns into....

THIS!

And everyone of those people are trying to do one of two things... get a beer or take a leak. In some cases, both.

I just did a whole post pretty much related to hockey. Which means you won't read it. Enjoy the weekend commenting.

Beth said...

"Saturday tits smell great"

So does this mean that weekday tits smell bad?

Beth said...

I knew this weird guy in high school that liked to invite Jehoviah's Witnesses in just to argue with. He wasn't religious but just liked to argue.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"So does this mean that weekday tits smell bad?"

Sorry, I meant- Saturday tits smell best.

JFreak said...

"How do you feel about Jehovah's Witnesses?"

If they wake me up by incessantly ringing my doorbell, I don't like them either.

Zeke's Ode to Pecos Breakfast Sammie:

2 Eggs
2 slices cheese
4 slices ham
english muffin

Fry up the eggs - over hard. Heat up the ham, put cheese slices on eggs. Top eggs with ham, fold over onto each other. Toast muffin. Egg/ham/cheese on muffin.

enjoy.

Pretty good 1st have for the Gophs. I don't think we'll end up pulling it out (TWSS), but if we do, bowl eligibility baby!!
-sure we're not there yet, but it's a hell of a lot better than going 1-11 and losing to a 1-AA team like last year.
*Also, this is the only Gophs game I'll probably be able to watch because we don't get the fucking Big 10 network

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Ah, but their self titled album is good. I don't care who else they may sound like.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

FTR Kod, BS&T and Chicago both started in 1967.

the real story about Magic and his fake aids is that it illustrates the point that rich folks get the good healthcare, the poor...notsomuch.

You have to have heard something from them

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

BS&T- 1970 Grammy for Album of the year

Chicago- 1977 best pop performance for "If You Leave Me Now"

El Padrino said...

this game is damn good

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

So.

BS&T wins a Grammy 1st and for Album Of The Year.

Chicago wins one for Best pop song 7 years later.

Blood, Sweat & Tears does not = Chicago wannabes.

kodiac said...

damn the Gophers are choking this one away

isiah thomas said...

yep, its over, UM is going to lose.

I'm shocked at the level of sucktitude UM has shown this season.

isiah thomas said...

If you think BS&T's body of work even touches Chicago's, your crazy.


IN DE FACE! deke

kodiac said...

my game over statement was premature; I didn't know they had all 3 TO's

damn

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"doesn't deserve one. If you think BS&T's body of work even touches Chicago's, your crazy."

And I agree with this statement.


But that's not what I said.

You said they were Chicago wannabes. I say not.

I like Chicago just as much as the next person.(The band, not the city)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"IN DE FACE! deke"



IDF on an opinion? You're better than that.








maybe not.

isiah thomas said...

HUGE win for Minny

congrats Kod

kodiac said...

whew; too close

kodiac said...

Nice post, Rev. NS.

In approximately 12 hours, I will be drunk off my ass. Time to drink a lot of water and get a full night's sleep.

The Rev said...

Sarah Palin at the Flyers game

We now know the reaction... and it wasn't pretty.

More disappointing, her outfit was the worse. Not hot at all.

The Rev said...

Philly tv feed of Sarah at the Flyers game

I know I'm harping on it, but it's interesting.

This is the feed that we saw in Philly of the game. The boos are much less pronounced in this feed, and the music seems to be turned up to drown them out. And the camera made sure to pan to a group of fans that were actually cheering. There were some.

Someone was manipulating that feed for sure.

I'm not sure where the first feed came from, but you can clearly hear the more negative reaction in it.

The Rev said...

Article about Palin's Flyers appearance

It's got a clearer video, and a little more about what happened.

I didn't know that the Jumbotron before she walked out actually asked, "Flyers fans, show Philadelphia's class and welcome America's No. 1 hockey mom, Sarah Palin".

I think we showed Phialdelphia's class quite well after that.

The Rev said...

Confirmed, the first video was the MSG New York Rangers network.

Oh my goodness! When did Eve get that ass???

Its BS that a TD off a fumble counts against your defense.

hilarious safety by the Lions; Olovosky just runs through the back of the end zone without realizing it. Even the announcer says, "poor guy, didn't even know he went out of the end zone"

Keith S said...

Reggie Bush is fast

Keith S said...

Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick might be the worse duo ever

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

FOX needs to tighten up their audio

Keith S said...

Never had a fried meatball

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

You just cook em in a skillet & then bake em to finish cooking them through.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Fucking Hester. Stay on your feet. That should have been a big gainer.

Keith S said...

Ah, I thought he meant deep fried

kodiac said...

wohooo

about freaking time

kodiac said...

so this is why people were excited about the Berrian signing

JFreak said...

"Is Indy's new joint open-air?"

Retractable roof + big windows in the end zones.

JFreak said...

And the roof is open today.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Hmm. Should I pay for the Pavlik/B-Hop fight next weekend?

kodiac said...

wow, Olovowsky(sp?) and Calvin Johnson hurt on the same play. Big loss for the Lions (ns)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Olovowsky(sp?)"


Jeez, Kod. Orlovsky.

kodiac said...

I don't know how they ruled that was a fumble (after review no less), but hey, I'm not complaining

kodiac said...

2 fumbles lost for AP so far

no good

kodiac said...

WTF is up with all of these fumbles; did they Vas up the ball or something?

kodiac said...

Jeez, Kod. Orlovsky.

cualquier

sheesh, I'm glad we don't play Atlanta this year (ns)

Big stop by the Falcons

The Vikes O-line is terrible; I don't give a shit about the names on the back of the jerseys, they fooking suck

Daaaaaaaa Bears!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Neck Beard, baby!

Keith S said...

The blood is on Jason Elam's foot

kodiac said...

if the Vikes avoid a fumble and hit the chip shot field goal, they will have their second straight victory because of a questionable pass interference play at the end

I'll take it, but I feel bad for Lions fans

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The blood is on ATL's inability to score TDs

Keith S said...

Thom Brennaman is painful

kodiac said...

for real; the Lions got raped by the refs in this game. The Calvin Johnson fumble (which wasn't) and the pass interference call (which it wasn't).

-I'm glad we won, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth

Keith S said...

Wow, Houston did it

El Padrino said...

great call by kubiak

football is great

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Orton even threw that ball a shade late

El Padrino said...

nice play by schaub

Keith S said...

"I'm glad we won, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth"
