PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Glen Macnow, afternoon drive co-host for Philadelphia’s 94 WIP, joined The Fan Morning Show today to help the guys preview tonight’s Penguins vs. Flyers match-up and explain why Philadelphia fans can’t stand the Penguins.

Macnow said he agrees with Ilya Bryzgalov’s recent comments about the Flyers not being good, explaining that they’re a .500 team that may struggle to make the playoffs. He did acknowledge, though, that the Penguins’ up-tempo style makes them vulnerable to the kind of game the Flyers play.

He expects tonight’s match-up to be a high-scoring affair like the last game between the two teams.

When asked to explain Flyers’ fans disdain for Sidney Crosby, Glen explained that Crosby’s appearance is a major contributing factor.

“He does have that expression that looks like he’s always going to cry,” Macnow said. “It’s a Tony Romo, Eli Manning kind of whiny-crybaby-hate-the-face kind of guy, and as much as you guys admire Sidney Crosby and those cups and all that, I believe even you would admit — the man is known to take a dive.”

He added that Flyers fans still harbor resentment toward the Pens’ Joe Vitale for allegedly taking a run at the Flyers’ Daniel Briere last year.

He also mentioned that Max Talbot has become a fan favorite in Philadelphia, even though Talbot’s second season in Philadelphia isn’t proving to be as productive as his first was.
