NY Rangers Still Alive, NY Mets : Anybody Home?

<>
I can watch this all day long……………I……………AM…………….A…………………RANGER

 

Oh boy! Long live the King. Henrik Lundqvist stood on his head last night with a little help form best little snow fort in the history of NYC located in Hanks net that stopped pucks and kept this crazy Rangers season alive. What a ride this team is giving us Rangers fans. They never give up. They may not be the best team in the league but they have the biggest hearts in the NHL and as long time Rangers fan I’m enjoying every aching minute of the playoffs.

Looks like the end of the line for Brad Richards. Last year Torts benched him, this year AV put him on the 4th line. This summer Slats will buy him out.  Richards is trying his hardest but he’s out of gas.

Rick Nash drives me nuts. He has done just about everything this past season but score some goals. That’s like real important. By the way newbie Rangers fans, he’s going nowhere.

Nothing better than watching MSG pre and post games shows. On the pre-game show last night, the passion from Eddie Giacomin and Rod Gilbert had me in goose bumps. Giacomin and Gilbert are around the Garden a lot and they want this team to win sooooo badly. Giacomin was fired up about how much he can’t stand the Rangers cycling offense that he yelled out “just get to the gosh-darn net” which for Eddie is strong language. Same with Gilbert going on about how “we have to use our speed much more against the Kings” Once a Ranger, Always a Ranger.

Anton Stralman, Brian Boyle and Beniot Pouliot are unrestricted free agents , slats has to find a way to keep all 3. Stralman has been outstanding this post season, Boyle is a great on face offs and a solid defensive forward, Pouliot drives me nuts but he does come up big in pressure spots.

Now on to the Mets.

Between periods I switch over to Mets-Brewers and how depressing is it to see Citi Field near empty. It’s only June does anyone with the last name Wilpon see that the Met fan has now stop being angry and is now apathetic?

David Wright needs a vacation. Can you us the disabled list for mental fatigue? The guy is fried.

As much as I loved seeing Bobby Abreu make this team, my hope now is he can be traded and open a spot for Matt den Dekker/Eric Campbell platoon.

The Mets have no clue what to do with Wilmer Flores. He was brought up to play shortstop which seems to have lit a fire under Ruben Tejada’s ass so Tejada plays every day and Flores dies on the vine.

The vote of confidence given to Terry Collins by Sandy Alderson that Collins is the manager and not in danger of losing his job was Alderson giving his season concession speech and letting Mets fans know he is the one responsible for this team.

It’s tough to get all hot and bothered about this Mets team. They pitch great but they can’t hit in the clutch and the infield needs to watch some Tom Emanski videos.  Tickets still available.

  1. Great Ranger game last night. When Citi Field opened, the thought that it could ever be as empty as it was last night would have seemed like a fantasy. It takes a certain kind of genius to destroy things this badly this quickly.

    If only MLB had a position, someone who was in charge of the public trust and the best interests of the game. Too bad that was eliminated all those years ago.
