DOOP-ing it out at Wells Fargo Center
In case you missed it, the Philadelphia Flyers and their fans are singing a new tune within the Wells Fargo Center these days.

Thing is, to those Major League soccer fans throughout the city, the song is an all-too familiar chant each time the Philadelphia Union pops home a goal at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. Now, the Flyers have added the DOOP song to their menu of musical overtures each time they light the lamp at Wells Fargo Center.

And, yes, it's become a hit.

Basically, all it consists of is: "DOOP DOOP DOOP da da DOOP DOOP DOOP da DOOP DOOP DOOP da da DOOP DOOP DOOP."

Not of lot of words, just one syllable throughout the entire chorus. But the switch has received positive feedback for the Flyers.

Flyers forward Danny Briere gave it his thumbs up -- and that's a good thing since Briere leads the Flyers with 6 playoff goals this spring.

"I thought it was great, and it really fired up the crowd in the last game," Briere said. "We played it a few times and the guys liked it. All I asked (Flyers president) Mr. (Peter) Luukko was that it had been four years since I came over to Philly and we had played the same song after a goal. There had to be something else out there to get the crowd fired up … a few guys noticed it and so far it's been very positive."

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
