the City of Brotherly hate

This is a brilliant recap of a injury that occurred in the 2nd period of Game 2 of the Philadelphia Flyers/ Buffalo Sabres hockey series on Wednesday night:
Denis Gauthier, tossed out of Game 2, temporarily knocked J.P. Dumont out of the game late in the second with a hard stick shot to the gut. Dumont, who scored three goals in Game 2, was down for several minutes before he was helped off the ice. The public address announcer implored the fans to "show some class out there and cheer when he gets up." Predictably, the plea was booed, though Dumont received polite applause when he did leave the ice.
For those of you who think that NY, Boston, or Leeds have the harshest fans, no one holds anything in comparison to Philadelphia. Every year the Phillys (the baseball team) have a father/son game in the middle of summer and fans routinely boo the children if they make a mistake OR if their father has been playing badly. Furthermore the Eages (the football team) stopped having Santa come our for a halftime show during Christmas time because fans booed him so much and once threw snowballs at him. (although some people claim that the Santa was drunk and flipping off people)
