Dayton Police Deny Rumors of Limp Bizkit’s Gas Station Concert
Yesterday morning, the Dayton Police Dept. tweeted a photo collage (shown below), advising everyone in the area that the rumors of a Limp Bizkit concert on April 20 at a Sunoco gas station are false. While it makes sense why the rap/rock band would want to celebrate such a special day with a secret concert, it seems like the police may be right on this one. Limp Bizkit confirmed via Twitter yesterday that the rumors were “TOTAL BS,” but gave “props to the posers who got everyone going.”

Flyers Fans Told To “Show Some Class” After Throwing Bracelets on Ice
What was supposed to be home stand honoring Flyers owner Ed Snider has morphed into a city-wide disgrace for Philadelphia. Game 3 between the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs at Wells Fargo Center in Philly was interrupted by fed up fans after an ugly play by Edouard Bellemare, where he hit Capitals’ Dmitry Orlov from behind. Many tossed commemorative glow bracelets (dedicated in the memory of Snider) onto the ice, causing the Flyers to be penalized. The Flyers PA announcer even scolded fans for their behavior and said, “Way to go,” as the Flyers were served a penalty. “We will not condone or tolerate their behavior,” Flyers COO Sean Tilger told Action News Tuesday. “They embarrassed the city.”
