Anyone else catch this last night? Just watched this documentary on HBO and it was completely amazing. That said, I can't imagine anyone outside of Philly having any interest in it or not getting pissed off at it. But if you're remotely a Flyers fan, you need to check this out. Just a great, loving portrait of a group of misfits that should never have succeeded but managed to win anyway. Highly recommended.

I was a huge Flyers fan back in high school and used to have a book by the same name - The Broad Street Bullies - back in the 70s. Lent it to a guy I knew, and the shithead never gave it back. Last time I gave a guy anything without a ring on my finger first. ;)

Yes, they spent a few minutes on her.

I missed the first 15 minutes or so, but I thought it was pretty good.

I was so obsessed with the team, that when I was about 15 I jokingly asked the violinist at a fancy Italian restaurant to play God Bless America for me...and he did, much to my embarrassment, as I soon realized. :p

t's the Broadstreet Bully and the Killah with no Face
My mac bullets burn like tequila with no chase
My knife work like the guillotine sword
Cut niggas, stop frontin' for my killa bee swarm, something

Word.
