The curse of the Philly Flyers

Another blue day in Blueland and the Philly Flyers came to town. I never look forward to these games. Philly has a (now) 14 game winning streak against us. And, the incredible Finn, Antero Niittymaki has a lifetime winning streak against us of (now) 12 games.





Voodoo dolls, horns, "reverse the curse" signs and not even my adorable Niittymonkey sign could stop them.







I also had my Happy Birthday Bobo sign. I wanted to bring it Wednesday, but I'll be taking pictures of Khabibulin...oh yeah and the rest of the Hawks.




Welcome to the Wachovia Center....I mean Phillips Arena. I must have been living wrong because our seats were right in the middle of an entire section of Flyers fan. Fortunately most were cool, but it SUCKED when they scored.







Warm ups!





A classic, the Thorburn stretch





Kari loves my signs, he always reads them.






Kari always looks like a sneaky little kid who is up to something in his mask. Adorable!



Bobo looks like he is grimacing in pain and the game hasn't even started yet!









Yes, Bobo, my birthday sign and I are still here. That dirty bastard Hartnell is in the background. Get a haircut!





Extreme Moose-up!




Now we get to our nemesis, Antero Niittymaki. This post is kind of a Niitty love fest. Being a self admitted goalie nut, I can't ignore his talent.



Everyone seems to love Niitty. Moose went over to say hi. In my mind he skated over to tell Niitty "See that funny sign with the monkey? That's my girl. She makes good signs huh? She called you a monkey. Hahahaha. Don't kick our ass too bad."


Niitty and Kari chat it up in Finnish all the time....MOVE baby Bogo. Tie your little skate somewhere else!



Bogo and Bobo. I don't know what they are looking at, my bad ass signs are not that far over.






Army!


Across the ice we have Martin Biron, aka Devil Eyes. "I'm here for your soul!"





Action shots.


FAIL!


Not a lot of action shots. Sitting in the middle of Philly through me off. Most shots turned out like this





Intermission guest, Bobo!!! Nothing better than Bobo on the jumbo tron.





A better picture





Our tough guy Boulton decided he needed to discuss some things with Riley Cote. I think he Showed him a lot. Cote sure can take a punch...or 12.




Now for the Niitty love fest!



Goalies get thirsty. Then they have to hose themselves down. Reason 2,381,348 I love them.





Someone cracked one of the panes of glass and they had to replace. It was directly in front of me and behind Niitty. He was terribly interested. Hell, he was probably bored, it's not like he was busy during the game.



Glass repair guy: "Okay, I need a volunteer to help me with the glass. Who wants to help?"

Niitty: Oh me!!! Pick me!!! Right here!!




Are you sure that's the way the glass goes?




Niitty: Hey Kimmo, come here.

Kimmo: What?

Niitty: Dude, look at them fixing the glass.

Kimmo: Yeah, that is pretty cool. Is that girl over there waving a sign calling you a monkey?
Niitty: Shut up.



Man, I wish they would let me do that.
