Dec 28, 2012, 1:32 PM EDT
Maybe many casual fans around the continent aren’t missing hockey all that much, but you know there’s a hardcore contingent in Philadelphia that’s missing the Flyers a whole lot. We have some data today to prove it. After messing around on Twitter on Thursday afternoon, we determined that 13 of the top 18 most visited blog posts on The700Level.com in 2012 were about the Flyers. We listed all 18 posts below with a few takeaways.
First, you guys really love to hate Sidney Crosby. The Penguins’ villain popped up in 3 of the top 18 posts.
Allen Iverson was the only Sixer to get his name in the top 18 posts, but the Sixers’ new t-shirt cannon made the cut as well. Another A.I. post also just missed the top 18. You guys really miss Bubba Chuck.
You all love Scott Hartnell, especially when he falls down.
Charlie Manuel and Jonathan Papelbon were the only Phillies to get huge numbers, mostly because they were arguing with umps and fighting with fans. Controversy!
Jason Babin whining was quite popular.
Here’s the full list. Jagr’s beard beat out Lavvy’s rant as most visited post of the year by only a few hundred pageviews. Wonder how Jagr’s beard was so popular? Some giant web portal in the Czech republic linked to the post about Jaromir’s “scholarly beard.”
Good night, good blogging.
