How many cities have as their most famous sports statue, a fictional character? If you guessed Philadelphia, you would be right.

When I saw the Kate Smith rendition of God Bless America, I thought about how long ago she became an icon for their cup teams. That's 43 years since the last one. It's time to let it go. Move on. It seems like the Flyers can't stop romanticizing the Broad Street Bullies. They aren't anything like that, yet they always have an undercurrent of being dirty and cheap. Somebody said to me before game 4 that they expected Philly to come out and play real physical. I've heard that even from Milbury and Jones. They can't play that way. It's not how they're built. They aren't tough or physical as a team. They stiil are cheap and dirty though. They must live up to that legacy. How many years has Kate Smith been dead?

I don't have a problem with them reliving the past as long as they continue to relive it every year ad infinitum. I don't ever want to see them lift the Cup again. I rarely quote Mark Madden but LOL when I think about his song "Have you ever seen the Flyers win the Cup"?

It's too bad that "1975" has too many syllables in it to make it an effective chant, like the old "1940" for the Rangers.
