One of the great things about sports is their ability to bring people together. When I was a teenager, I didn't have much of a social life, but I could always talk with friends and classmates about all that was going on in the sports world. When there was a major sporting event on TV -- Super Bowl, NCAA Tournament, etc. -- my friends came to my house.
I'm a lot more socially active these days, but watching sports continues to be a social event for me. Tonight, I met some friends at a sports bar to watch the Philadelphia Flyers take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL's Eastern Conference Finals. Above, I am with (from left) Susan, Marc, and Rob. We had fun, but the game left a lot to be desired -- unless you were a Penguins fan.
Some things never change -- Philly teams still let me down!
