I’m not sure who looks freakier at this point. Pat Sajak or Vanna White? In any event, because of the continued success of game show “Wheel of Fortune,” they have remained relevent (thanks plastic surgeons!). Sajak has over 14K followers on Twitter, and he probably was never more popular than last night when he tweeted out his disgust of the Philadelphia Flyers organization following the team’s 7-0 loss to the Capitals.
Love hockey, but Flyers are part of reason it remains a niche sport. Shameful tonight (including Philly radio team.)

Sajak is right, the Flyers are shameful. They fired their head coach three games into the season, and haven’t really done much better since. Last night’s game was atrocious, as one can easily notice by the score. But it was even worse, as the team’s ended up getting into a fight, as well. The goalies went at it (who doesn’t like a good goalie fight?) and it resulted in Vincent Lecavalier with injuries to his face and Steve Downie with a concussion.
Of course, Sajak’s tweet didn’t sit well with some Flyers fans:
Well, while I agree that Trebek and his condescending hosting ways are way better than whatever it is that Sajak does, he is spot-on about the Flyers. They stink. One doesn’t have to know a lot about hockey to figure that out.
