Flyers Inflict Indigestion; FIOS Stays Classy; Win a Mask

The Flyers blew out the Thrashers 7-0 last night in Atlanta.

The Thrashers have horrible attendance.

Coincidence? Well the Thrashers have set-up certain all-you-can eat sections. Awful hockey + depression eating = messy recipe for disaster. I’m glad I wasn’t at Philips Arena last night. I think you can have all-you-can buffets or you can have a struggling team, but I don’t think it’s a great idea to mix the two. I wish the NHL kept a fan-choking stat.

Just a quick follow-up to the news Verizon FiOS is going to carry both the NHL Network and Center Ice (news that excited some people). The subscriptions won’t be prorated, so you’ll pay the full $169 even though you’re not getting a full season. You’ve got to love the cable industry.

Also, Hart Designs is giving away a custom goalie mask painting to one lucky goalie. Details are here and the rules are here.

Sadly, to win you have to be a goalie, so I have to recuse myself from the contest.
