Never doubt the depths to which Philadelphia sports fans will stoop.
On Sunday night, Philadelphia Flyers supporters proved the city’s fans are still equally as incapable of handling defeat as they are of enduring victory.
Philadelphia sports fans are still trash
Flyers fans rained trash down onto the ice after watching their team get soundly eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
The extremely Philadelphian response to defeat prompted disgusted reactions from Pittsburgh’s bench.

And the embarrassing display continued through postgame handshakes.
According to Pens captain Sidney Crosby, garbage wasn’t the only thing thrown by the trash in the seats at Wells Fargo Center.
Asked Sid about having all the beer cans thrown at him: “Those things were full. What a waste. Guess they have to be full to throw them that far.”

I’m tempted to suggest Crosby should have thrown the gesture back into the fans’ faces by pulling a Gronk. But these are Philadelphia sports fans — and at this point I wouldn’t put drugging a beverage meant for an opposing team’s captain beyond them.
