Is there not a Flyers thread? Unthinkable as they're the closest thing the city has to title hopes.
Hockey is boring. It's like a faster version of men's lacrosse, which is also boring. I'm sure people would come out for the parade, but it's a niche sport. :coffee:

I was only partially kidding about ice hockey - I could use a lot more scoring but it's a good sport. It's like soccer on ice, same plus and minuses to it. Sometimes it's just sloppy though - puck takes weird bounces and a lot of passes miss the mark. When it's played crisply it's fun to watch. Lacrosse on the other hand, I simply just don't get it. And I had season tickets for the Philadelphia Wings at one point when they had the Gait brothers and Marachek playing for them. It's just a pretty boring sport with little strategy. And it almost all comes down to having a great face off guy. You do that, along with sticking a guy behind the net to claim any missed shots, and you're on offense the whole time. I can't think of many more boring things other than watching men's college lacrosse.

Eh, it's on pause right now. The only thing that matters is the playoffs. If Simmons and Embiid are healthy by then then we'll assess.
They'll be a second round exit again. Book it.

Hockey more boring than NBA?

Living in close proximity to a very good D-III lacrosse program, I’m hooked. Indoor lacrosse is no comparison.

Heck, I think outdoor lacrosse is even more boring - at least indoor had a little contact. Best thing about outdoor lacrosse is the walk you get to and from the field and being outdoors on a nice day. And even then lacrosse screws that up by starting the season in the frigid cold of February when no one wants to be outside for that long.

Speak for yourself. That’s why Wal-mart invented stadium blankets.

Nah, I'm not even 50 yet and I hate spending too much time in the cold. And that was before I went keto and dropped 25 lbs. I lost my layer of fat that was keeping me warm. I'm going to be one of those old people who travel in the winter just so I can get to warmer climates. Not a Florida person, too many old people there, but I'll frequently be leaving the Philly area around winter time.
