Penguins fans also have a weird obsession with the Flyers. I live in Pittsburgh and am friends with many Penguins fans. Last night for example one Penguins fan tweeted "the demise of the Flyers is the greatest thing I've ever witnessed." Not only is it a weird thing to tweet for someone who lived through a Stanley Cup and is in the middle of a 13 game winning streak but it's idiotic for someone to tweet who's team was bottom 5 in the NHL 4 years in a row less than 10 years ago.

Trust me the weird obsessions go both ways. In my experience the obsession goes stronger in our direction.
