Flyers Fans Welcome Penguins Fans To The Dark Side

Wonder when they'll retire Jagr's jersey next to that guy's?

“I feel a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.” -Obi Wan Kenobi

Of course, Obi Wan was talking about the destruction of an entire planet.

But I’m pretty sure this quote fits what’s going on with Pittsburgh Penguins fans today, now that the Flyers have signed Jaromir Jagr to a one-year deal. The Pens Blog commemorated the news with a picture of a mushroom cloud. That’s worth $3.3 million alone.

After years of indignation over the “Crosby Sucks” chant in Philadelphia, it will be comedy to hear “Jagr Sucks” raining down from the stands when the Flyers visit the Console Energy Center on December 29.

Welcome to the dark side, Penguins fans! It’s not so bad. Really.

UPDATE: to add insult to injury, super-pest and Pens fan favorite Maxim Talbot just signed a 5-year deal in orange and black ink.

I’m pretty sure that *POP!* I just heard was the sound of two million heads simultaneously exploding in Western Pennsylvania.
