and how we make them feel like a second class city.
Imagine all that is said about the envy Philly feels for NYC and magnify that.
Add to that all the years that the Flyers beat them soundly... a how they couldn't buy a win in the Spectrum no matter what they did.
Needless to say, Pens fans do not agree with me.
If you're referring to the amount of public assistance that Philadelphia residents receive, well, I couldn't agree more. But yeah, I remember those years in which the Pens couldn't beat the Flyers. Makes the current situation today that much sweeter!
