General Manager Ron Hextall thought his first year with the Philadelphia Flyers would be easier. They had a lot of young talent on the roster and looked like they could get the fans excited with a new young defensive core. Injuries however put a chink in the plan and Hextall felt the brunt of it when he literally exploded today from all of the frustration.
Police are investigating whether foul play was involved or if the Flyers are really bad enough to cause a man to explode.
To test this, game footage from Wednesday night’s contest against the Rangers was shown to a group of volunteers and a few Illegal Immigrants. Those conducting the study explained that most participants described feelings of nausea however none actually died; except for two who were murdered on their way home by a drunk driver and a third who was the drunk driver that hung himself after feeling grief stricken.
In Hextall’s absence, a dart board will take over as the interim GM. Many suspect it will not change a thing.
