‘Steagles’ Save PA Pro Football
Commonwealth Cold War
The best NHL rivalry not featuring an Original Six club, the Penguins and Flyers are sort of like the Batman and Joker in that each would be lost without the other in its life.
The Steelers are 0-9 in Philadelphia dating to 1965. Awful, huh? Well, the Penguins were 0-39-3 in Philadelphia from 1974-1989. So … go Bucs?
During the 1970s, the Pirates and Phillies combined to win 9 of 10 National League Eastern Division titles. But only the Pirates won the World Series. Twice. Just sayin’.
