Wasn't that one game? And Toronto has a much better playoff record the last few years than the Chok...er, Flyers do.
Rob asks Dave and Ric if they want to go backstage to play Hungry Hungry Hippos and Flair and Batista immediately bail. Flair wants to be Green. Man, EVERYBODY wants to be green. Except the girl in the commercials. She wanted to be pink. That either means that the ad agency was sexist or that she was communist. Of course Hungry Hungry Hippos is a rather capitalist game isnít it? No self respecting communist would play Hungry Hungry Hippos. Except Stalin. He LOVED Hungry Hungry Hippos.

You know, I just can't call it the "WWE." I just can't. My body's rejecting it like a bad liver transplant.-- Bill Simmons, espn.com/page2
Yep, that's right, since the Flyers came into existence, they are leading the Leafs in Stanley Cup wins 2-0. Of course, if more recent history is what suits you, last year's series was a great Flyers victory.

I've only been a Leafs fan for a couple of years since the time that I lived in Ontario and adopted them (I've since moved back south but have retained the Leafs the same way Walter Sobchak retained his Judaism*). But my point is this: I've seen the Leafs have contending teams this whole time and even *I* know better than to say right now they're taking the Stanley Cup. Besides, how many times over the last 20 years in ANY sport has the best team at midseason been the best team in the postseason? It's happened, but not THAT often.
Even my GF at the time, who is a casual hockey fan at best said it best when she said the following, "They've had good teams the last few years but they always find a way to blow it in the playoffs"
*The Dude: "Man, you're fucking Polish Catholic..." Walter: "What the fuck are you talking about? I converted when I married Cynthia! Come on, Dude!" The Dude: "Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah..." Walter: "And you know this!" The Dude: "Yeah, and five fucking years ago you were divorced." Walter: "So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?"
Sinden is still part of the organization (President, I beleive), but you are right about Jacobs. It still seems that all they (Jacobs and Sinden) want to do is "save hockey" by keeping salaries down, rather than win a cup.
