Did ?uestlove bring good luck to Flyers?

Roots drummer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson was excited to catch his first Flyers game last night, even after Flyers fans booed him in the parking lot for taking a picture with a woman in a Blackhawks shirt. "She was hot," he told us last night outside a Wachovia Center club box. "I was looking at her. I didn't notice her shirt until they started booing me."

Roots drummer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson was excited to catch his first Flyers game last night, even after Flyers fans booed him in the parking lot for taking a picture with a woman in a Blackhawks shirt. "She was hot," he told us last night outside a Wachovia Center club box. "I was looking at her. I didn't notice her shirt until they started booing me."

The Roots leader says that he got swept up in the playoff excitement and "I needed to see it in person." The group, now the house band on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," practiced yesterday with DJ Jazzy Jeff, with whom they will perform Saturday at the Roots Picnic at Festival Pier. They'll also play separate sets with John Legend and several members of the Wu-Tang Clan at the show, which also features Vampire Weekend among many other acts.

Superstitious as Philly fans can be, Flyers fans on Twitter, where ?uestlove has about 1.4 million followers, have declared him Flyers good luck charm and have even suggested kidnapping him and forcing him to attend Game 4 tomorrow night.
