There are certain rules we should all follow in the world:
- Chew with your mouth closed
- Don’t ask someone their weight or age
- Don’t ignore young fans
The Flyers, losers of 10 straight games (!), probably don’t follow those first two rules, and they certainly do not follow #3:
In their loss against the Devils Wednesday night (which again was their TENTH STRAIGHT), one of the few remaining fans of the team was looking for a little high-five action from some of his role models.
I did some calculations (aka rewatched the video 20 times) and came to the conclusion that little man had a 15.4% (2/13) success rate when attempting high-fives. 15.4%? That’s almost as bad as Ben Simmons’ free-throw percentage!
All jokes aside, this video sucks. I remember being this kid and begging athletes for autographs/ any sort of attention and it is a sad feeling to get ignored. I’m sure the team is extremely frustrated with their recent play and their minds weren’t exactly focused on an eight-year-old looking for a high-five through plexiglass, but blatantly ignoring him is just unnecessary and downright rude.
AV is gone. We’ve hit double-digit L’s. And now our boys in Orange are making kids cry. Hopefully the team makes things right and gives the kid a VIP experience he’ll never forget. And hopefully that lifts the curse that the team has now undoubtedly put on themselves.
Also, RIP to former NFL WR Demaryius Thomas. He was a menace on the field and had a great reputation as a peson. Prayers to his family and all of his teammates.
