LACK OF FLYERS MEANS THAT 76ers PRESEASON BASKETBALL IS FINALLY HERE

Today was supposed to be the first Flyers game of the 2012-13 season.  But, due to circumstances beyond our control, the outside of the Wells Fargo Center will look like this tonight…

*sigh*

And since there’s no end in sight for the NHL Lockout, I’m guessing that the inside of the Wells Fargo Center looks like this…

And Flyers phans will look like this…

Poor, poor, dope…

Which segues nicely into the fact that tonight is our new saviors of the city, the Philadelphia 76ers very first preseason game!  Thank God.  The lack of Phillies playoff baseball and Michael Vick derailing the Eagles every week has left me uninspired and quite frankly, a bit bummed out.  However, the revamped Sixers will fix all of that!  With their new mascot, Allen Iverson, and the threat of their former mascot Hip Hop lurking in the shadows, this season will be sure to not disappoint.

Plus, the addition of the best center of the league, Andrew Bynum.  Tonight, we’ll finally get to see him in action and start destroying the rest of the league!  Wait, what??  He’s not playing at all during the preseason?  He just had a “knee procedure”??  Allen Iverson isn’t the official mascot???  SMPhH…I’m just going to drink and play NHL 94.
