PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Did you vote for Tom Corbett? Are you a Flyers fan? If you answered yes to those questions, get ready to possibly regret that vote.

In an interview with The Bubba Show on 100.7 Star in Pittsburgh, Corbett said he’s pulling for the Penguins on their opening round NHL playoff series against the Flyers. ““When I moved to Pittsburgh as a little boy, 6 years old, I started rooting for the Pittsburgh Hornets, before the Penguins were in existence and I’ve been rooting for the Penguins ever since and you don’t change your decisions,” he said.

Then, when asked if that means he’s pulling for Pittsburgh, Corbett said “absolutely.”

The Flyers lead the series three games to one. Game five is tonight, and can be heard on 94WIP and 610WIP.
