Yours, mine, and our Philadelphia Flyers are the talk of the league right now. They’re on a hot streak that doesn’t appear to have an end in sight, even when they aren’t completely on their game. I have stopped myself just short of saying this team is going to win it all for Oskar Lindblom, but I really think they might. And it doesn’t seem like I’m alone.

According to last week’s SB Nation NHL FanPulse 99% of Flyers fans believe the franchise is heading in the right direction. This is up from the previous 96% and 95% in previous polls.

Now, we’re Philadelphia fans, we need something to complain about, I assume that is where the 1% is coming from. So I’m going to give you a list of things to complain about, because we need something. Anything.

Traffic

Getting to the Wells Fargo Center sucks. I can never tell which entrances to which parking lots are open, there are cars lined up all the way up and down 95, and then when you get there, you will probably be in the lane for reserved parking.

Climate Change

We did not get one single snow this winter. No accumulation, no snowball fights, no snowmen. And do you know what comes with an early spring? Bees. Wasps. Hornets. Spiders. Bring back the blizzard of ‘95 please.

Hangovers

They’re just terrible.

People who are shitty on Twitter and then slide into your DMs

Whether you’re trying to continue the argument or apologize and make nice, stay out of the DMs. It’s inappropriate. Whatever you have to say can be said publicly, like the rest of the conversation.

Those idiot Pittsburgh Penguins

Why won’t they just go the way of the New York Rangers already, UGH.

The stupid and dumb New York Rangers

Speaking of, why are they still kind of in the playoff picture? It’s infuriating. Beat the teams we need you to beat and then go away.

The NHL Playoff format

Just let the best 16 teams in. Seriously. It’s not that hard.

Planned obsolescence

I really really really want to stop replacing my phone every three years. And my laptop. And my TV. It shouldn’t be too much to ask.

Cancer

As always, fuck cancer. We are all #OskarStrong.

Here you can see not one single thing is about the Flyers. Because there isn’t anything to complain about. Not right now! Leave me some comments about things you feel like complaining about today.
