0 for 2 Today

Back to life, back to reality. Our Birds gave the Cardinals a Thanksgiving beating last night and we were once again on the top of the world. It took less than 24 hours for that to change. The Flyers dropped the back end of a home and home versus the visiting Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 in overtime and the Sixers got romped on the road 102-78 to the Eastern Conference leading Boston Celtics.

It is disappointing that the Flyers lost, but they had just won six in a row and losses happen. I was at the game and from what I could tell, it was a very winnable game and some of the goals the Canes scored could have been stopped. However, I think it is best not to mope on a game like this and just hope they can bounce back and collect more wins rather than go on a losing streak. By the way, Jeff Carter scored his 16th goal of the season, which put him one up on Buffalo's Thomas Vanek. 

As far as the Sixers go, a loss to Boston is not surprising, however disheartening. With the off-season additions this team made over the summer we were hoping it would help them compete better with the beasts of the east. Like I have said, we need to give them time to gel, but a 24 point loss? Cmon boys...you are better than that.

Possible pics from the Flyers game to come later. I took them on my new camera phone so I have to see if the quality is any good.
