Ed Snider's desperate attempt to set a Guinness World Record


Ed Snider is really sorry that he made you suffer through two years worth of Ilya Bryzgalov. So sorry that even though the Flyers signed Vincent Lecavalier this off-season, he is still desperate to get the fans involved and get back in the good graces of the fanbase. But there is desperate, and then there’s this event that the Flyers scheduled on Facebook this morning. 

Help us set a new Guinness Book of World Records for the most people to simultaneously watch paint dry when we paint the lines and logos into the ice at Wells Fargo Center this Monday at 11 a.m.!

Be a part of the preparations for the 2013-14 season and bring your cameras! Fans are welcome to enter from the Fan Zone store on the 11th street side of the Wells Fargo Center.

As much as that sounds like how any normal Philadelphia sports fans would like to spend there Saturday afternoon, it gets even better.

If you can’t make it down to the Wells Fargo Center to be part of such a prestigious event, you instead have a chance to stay involved on social media.

As a few fans have pointed out to me, watching the paint dry, or just getting involved on Twitter, hypothetically may be better than watching the lifeless Phillies face NL Cy Young candidate Clayton Kershaw tonight. Yeah, were in those type of times in Philadelphia sports.
