Philly Fans defend Rocky's honor.

What a great story! Rabid hockey fans from Pittsburgh made an early morning attempt to put a Sidney Crosby Penguins jersey on the statue of Rocky Balboa in Philadelphia. This is WONDERFUL!!!!! This is even better than the kook in Raleigh, NC that was arrested for cutting down Hurricanes jerseys that were placed on Civil war statues in the downtown area during the Hurricanes 2006 Stanley Cup run. Now you have Philly fans doing 24 hour watch over the Rocky statue like they are on a stakeout. How much fun is THAT? Then again, how big a loser do you have to be sitting around at night in a car eating Cheetoes and guarding a statue. Truth is, Philly fan should have already put a Mike Richards wrapper on the Stallion's back already themselves. I have been refraining from taking sides in this little civil war, but Crosby Nation is proving to be much more creative than Philly fan so far. I completely expect for Philly fan to respond in game 3 as usual... start a few fights, use Pens fans as urinals...you know, typical Philly fan stuff. Turning Rocky into a Steel towner...even if for only a few minutes is a great start to this little skirmish.
