Yesterday's post about Mike Wise's column on Flyers fans in the Washington Post has generated its fair share of commentary, judging by the comments section and by remarks made in person by some of my Fly-head friends. But get this: A friend with knowledge of the Flyers tells me the organ-I-zation has run off 20,000 copies of Wise's column and will be distributing one to every fan who attends tonight's game at the Wacho Center. The thinking, obviously, is that the Flyers feel compelled to further get their fans into a frothing, maniacal lather. Which, in an ironic twist the organ-I-zation is obviously too stupid to realize, basically proves Wise's point.
UPDATE: Once word of the Flyers' plan to distribute the column got around, the Washington Post issued a cease-and-desist order to prevent it.
