This question was posed to me today: If you could only pick one, which would you pick:
Pens lose this series
Flyers win this series
Um, no question – Pens lose. And my husband, the Flyers fan, agrees. “Flyers win, but Pens win would only delay the inevitable,” he says. I was thinking more the vicarious enjoyment of the Flyers advancing in no way outweighs the huge enjoyment of seeing Pens bounced (and not repeating, which I fear they may).
Additional benes to Pens losing:
- No more Cindy Crosby whining – that’s worth it right there.
- Pens getting tossed by same team that dispatched Caps – eases the disappointment a bit.
- Continue to watch Assistant Coach Hottie (see below)
