1st- No way the Flyers beat Chicago.

2nd- I know it's a different sport, but this is funny all the same. The new Philadelphia expansion team in MLS was courting Robert Pires (a former superstar from the French national team who, while on the downside of his career, is still quite good and very well known). The deal was all but done. The Philadelphia coach was already talking about the value of having a guy like Pires in the lineup. Then Pires visited Philadelphia. The deal immediately died, and Pires made this statement to the press: "I do not want to be difficult, but left to take my family away, I'd rather do it in a beautiful city." He said that he will either find a beautiful city in which to play, or he will retire. The best part? He's now considering the NY MLS team, saying "That [NY] is a beautiful city."
