When tweeting you have to be especially careful what you say. Particularly if you are a sports franchise or a celebrity, someone will see it, take a screenshot and it will live on the Internet forever.
The Philadelphia Flyers Twitter account apparently forgot to spellcheck this tweet when they were announcing the date for a new prospects function called “Trial on the Isle.” Rather than saying hit the beach, the Flyers account said ******* the beach.” While they could also do that too, it would be frowned upon.

With rumors swirling that the Philadelphia Flyers will use their first compliance buyout on veteran forward Daniel Briere, and previous speculation that goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov may receive similar treatment, the Flyers have some interesting decisions to make in the coming weeks.
Briere, 35, has two years left on a contract that carries a...
The Ilya Bryzgalov buyout talk isn't about to die down any time soon. Despite vehement denials from Flyers management that the team plans to use one of its two allotted salary cap compliance (AKA amnesty) buyouts on Bryzgalov, there is still rampant speculation that the team will do so when all is said and done.
Yesterday, TSN's Bob McKenzie tweeted the following: "...
On Saturday afternoon, TSN’s Bob McKenzie got the wheels turning for the Philadelphia Flyers’ off-season. Along with his major statement in which he said that he expects Ilya Bryzgalov to be bought out, McKenzie commented on the Flyers’ defensive situation: “Also, PHI is in market for D and may be willing to move one of [...]

A report from The Fourth Period indicates that the Philadelphia Flyers are still interested in defenseman Keith Yandle and that the team will make a push to acquire him from the Phoenix Coyotes this summer. If this topic sounds familiar it's because the Flyers were interested in Yandle prior to the 2013 trade deadline, but the two teams were unable to reach a deal.
I think new Oilers GM Craig MacTavish proved on Saturday that Oilers fans are in for a wild ride this summer.
I offer to you folks a little rumor I'm hearing regarding the Oilers, the draft, and the Flyers.
1. The Flyers have depth-o-plenty at center.
