Flyers deny selves humiliating loss

- The Flyers looked like the Flyersing old Flyers last night, going down 3-2 after two periods in Detroit against a Red Wings squad missing three key players.

Then, as the Flyers went on to score 4 unanswered goals, things got dicey for anyone who happened to have promised pizza to everyone on Twitter in the event of a Flyers win.

Okay, logistically, how will this pizza party happen.

- Is there a better guy to have on your side right not than Toronto mayor Rob Ford? The Redskins are lucky to - shockingly - have him on their side throughout this name debate. To summarize, Ford sarcastically asked if we should change the Indians to the "Aboriginals."

- DeMarcus Cousins has a lot of jokes. You ever hear the one about how he refuses to shake hands with opponents? Or let his teammates do so? Ha, ha. Oh, DeMarcus. Anyways,

Asked DeMarcus Cousins about playing Friday, he joked "probably not, think I'll be out rest of the season & I can get a comeback commercial"

- Carmelo Anthony thinks the Knicks are a "laughingstock" and naturally took it out on people trolling his Instagram page.

- Ron Burgundy interviewed Peyton Manning on Sports Center, and managed to rip the lid off a story that Manning just barely knows the name of the Broncos mascot.
