Nice to see the league getting some recognition outside of the niches.

why even bother with Flyers colors... Let a building in Philly light up orange. Not a big deal though, still pretty cool.

Awesome, except it would be better if it would just be Blue and Red/White.

I think the reason they put Flyer colors there was because HBO asked for the WC colors, not the Rangers. I'll bet my life that the only reason they wanted it lit up is for the opening video of the game.

So what? Light the stupid statue of Rocky up in Flyers colors. I mean, that's the only thing that city has, anyway. Shine some stupid black and orange on that thing and use that in the video. This is the Empire ****ing State Building. Why the hell are Philly colors on it?

A disgrace.

That's something you'd feel pretty comfortable betting your life on? Because it's kind of out there. 24/7 is a documentary, they're not trying to influence things like that so they can have better footage.

24/7 is also (slightly) reality television. Not saying it's anywhere near as bad as, say, Khloe and Lamar (or some trite like that), but still reality TV. They want viewers, so I wouldn't be surprised if HBO did ask for the Flyers colors to be put up there.

Seriously, if they're going to represent the winter classic don't make 70% of the lighting Flyers orange! Where's the common sense?

Umm they do have the Liberty Bell, it is kind of historically important.

Just sayin'

Well I wouldn't bet my life on anything. I was just saying that to emphasize how much I think that's the reason why they did it. And you don't think they did that to get better footage? It's obvious HBO or the NHL asked the Empire State Building to do it. It's not like they wasted their time to ask them to do it and not use it for footage.

The Empire State Building is known to change the colors of their lights for certain events. If there was a building in Philadelphia that did that, they would do the same thing.

Yet another example of the utter lack of respect for the Rangers in this town. If this was any other NY team (especially the precious Knicks), you could bet your *** that the other team's colors wouldn't be represented in anyway, shape or form!
