I Didn't Know The Sandman was Orange

Now, I don't want to get off on a rant here, but what the hell is up with Philadelphia Flyers fans? Doesn't everyone know that Summers is a Washington Capitals bar? Sure, the Caps didn't show up in the playoffs, but that fits in perfectly with the Summers theme considering that most nights people don't show up there either. On the other hand, don't think for one second that throwing on a ratty Flyers jersey and waving a tattered old flag is going to draw in the crowds either. They're not saying "Boucher", they're saying "Boo. Sit down old man. Get a hair cut. Wash the giant orange fist every once in a while before you bring it to Summers. This is a respectable establishment."

Well, its not a respectable establishment with my parents or the people I work with, but its my respectable establishment. And I don't like Flyers fans. Or Sabres fans. Granted, everyone is allowed to cheer for their team and hoot and holler and get a little out of control, but not on Wednesday. Not on Molson Candian Night. Have some respect.


  1. Hey Joe - Smell my Fist! Ha ha. But what's this about not bringing your parents into Summers? It's a family restaurant! Many seasonal Slummers patrons wouldn't even be allowed in if they weren't accompanied by an adult.

  2. True. It is advertised as a family restaurant. But I wouldn't bring my family here. Well, I have brought my brother & sister here, but that's besides the point.

    I have never actually brought my parents here, but what I mean was that my parents don't respect me because I go here.

    They know it is a den of inequuity.

  3. Mark your calendars. I admit I make mistakes and yes, I can actually be wrong. In my omniscience I had assumed that a giant orange fist was the worst piece of sport schwag ever.

    But I was wrong.

    Orange Flyers Crocs are a trillion times worse.

    Scratch that, infinitely worse. Granted, I hate Crocs as a foot garment to begin with, but Orange Crocs are brutal and orange Flyers Crocs are the worst piece of footwear since clogs.
