I sat near many Philly fans over the years HERE IN PITTSBURGH, and many just look to start trouble.
Years ago a Pitt student worked for me and we were talking about this very thing. He just laughed as he said he had many Philly kids in his dorm, and knew what I was talking about.

He said that a kid on his floor, a huge Flyers fan, went to a Flyers/Pens game here in Pittsburgh. Later on, he asked him how it was, and how he was treated. His reply. "Everyone was nice. So nice. It was kind of disgusting. That's not what sports is all about."
Ugh totally get you on the Flyers thing.. Imagine having them a short train ride away.. Thanks again guys!
