From Quades Blog::


Flyers Invade Championship Plaza

So Championship Plaza has some strict rules on what you can and cannot place your customized brick. The last thing the Devils need is egg on their face when some no-class idiot fan of the team, or worse, a no-class idiot fan of another team, inserts his own brilliant Shakespearian quote referring to the sexual orientations and preferences of other teams and players onto a brick for the Devils faithful to gaze upon anywhere up to 60 nights a year. (I have dreams of long playoff runs.)

That said, I wonder which of the fellas working on Championship Plaza had the time to scrawl this Flyers logo into the crosswalk on the Prudential Center corner of Edison Street? You know it couldn’t have happened on his break. Union guys value those 15 minutes like pirate’s booty. It’s really not a bad rendition of Philly’s logo, but I imagine the artist lacked the skills to etch a Stanley Cup into the street. The Broad Street Bullies haven’t seen one in so long they probably don’t even remember what it looks like anymore.

I hope they remove it..

I also have to admit I am worried someone will like spray paint all over the custom bricks or any part of CP for that matter

I bet Vanderbeek would spring into action (in so much as he is able to do so) if this was brought to his attention.

Well, everyone wondered when someone would tag the arena with some Ranger garbage, but the Flyers beat'em to it...

See it here.

Fortunately, it's easily replaced.

I wonder how long it will take before people start breaking them. I would imagine that hit hard enough they crack. That would suck. Would they replace them at all?

Aren't putting the words "Flyers" and "Championship Plaza" together some type of oxymoron?

I've always seen extra cops when the Phailures or Rags are in town. But yeah, I'm hoping they have cops stationed @ Championship plaza, instead of rent-a-cops. I'd go ballistic if someone vandalized my brick!

In Quade's defense, the original poster linked to and quoted Quade's entire blog post without really mentioning him. This is the type of thing that, had this been a Star Ledger story instead of an NJDevs regular's blog, used to get this forum in trouble.

It still should, Quade's blog has turned me onto to a lot of good places to hang out in Newark. The OP even placed a link to the photo in the original post. That's BS, IMO(I'm really going crazy on acronyms).

If I had my druthers the OP would get his post deleted or refined so people might click through to Quade's blog.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

This one is kind of tough as I have noticed that myself, quade, marv95 and block all show on Wirednewyork, glocallynewark and NJdevs to post stuff. Since we all find items at different times I have found times when I will post an article up an article here and block will post it on wired. I say merge the threads and just remind block of the ground rules.... oh and first a-hole to put a rangers tag in my town is going to get a serious beat down and dragged to the wrong part of down and left.
