I agree..... I had high hopes for Fleury in the playoffs. They jinxed it right before the playoffs started when they said about his career saves.

What's most disappointing to me is the fact the Penguins and Steelers are now losing to our biggest rivals. To be swept by the Ravens last year and to see the Penguins look like a high school team against the Flyers is disgusting.

The Pirates are playing in a league with no salary cap so I don't even watch them as they will never be on even footing with the rest of the league and if they do develop a player he will just be stolen by a big league team. In other cities I have been to, they say the Pirates are the farm team for the rest of the league.

I like Paul Cryst to help the Panthers be good.

Pitt Panthers: Its business as usual for the football team: lousy. As for the basketball team, by far the biggest disappointment of the whole season. Pitt fans resort back to what they do best: bitching and moaning.

I currently have a roommate from Boston so you can imagine we playfully feud in our current location of Columbus, OH. We're just two absolutly bullheaded, unapologetic supporters of our cities. Before, I lived amoungst Clevelanders in college so this is a big 180 degree difference in terms of bragging rights and sports oneupmanship that I'm used to having.
All things considered, it has been indeed a bad year for Pitt b-ball. At least they have a third-tier championship to brag about.. None of the Big East teams can boast about some semblance of a title. So it truly can't be a total loss..
(Just get rid of that current logo and bring back the classic "Pitt Script")

They certainly smashed that wall tonight. 10-3. If they can do that again in the next game in Pittsburgh, they might not be dead yet. The Phillies have a history of losing the series after being up 3-1. So it is not crazy that they could still lose it.

That was an ugly loss.

I can see the flyers caving, because their goaltending sucks. They are streaky goalies at best and these 2 havnet been good all year. You cant give up 4,5,6 goals a game and win, let alone 10. lol
