I AM A RANGER

<>
 

 

I know we are supposed to be all hopped up for baseball, with opening day just days away (I am very anxious to get to Citi Field early on Thursday) but I have to take time out to salute my NY Rangers on win #50 last night.

This has been the best Rangers season in years. This may not be the most talented Rangers team ever but it may be the best loved by the fans, with the exception of the 1994 Cup Champs. Even the most jaded of Rangers fan has a tough time criticizing anyone on this team, oh they try by getting on Dubi or Boyle or Richards but they look foolish doing it.

I have no idea what will happen in the Stanley Cup playoffs, I will be rooting my ass off for a Cup and a parade but right but I don’t want to get ahead of myself.

But before the playoffs start I want to thank the Rangers players, Coach Torterella and a guy I have been nasty to for years Glen Sather for giving Rangers fans a great season and for bringing us a team we are so proud of.

The video I posted gives me goosebumps every time I see it when I’m at MSG. I had NY Rangers season tickets from the mid-70′s to about 1990 when kids and a mortgage made me shift my time and money obligations but I still make sure I watch every game on TV and try to get to at least 10 games a year.

Like the message in the video says “I AM A RANGER”

A FEW WORDS BEFORE I GO OUT AND HIT SOME FUNGOS

A few quickies as I head out the door and enjoy this unseasonably warm weather:

Mike Silva has a link to the Transaction Guy site that tells of the SF Giants releasing three relievers one is ex Met Tyler Walker.

Here is a quote from Tim Mc Fullofshit in today’s Philly Inquirer that compeers the Mets 1986 World Series parade to that of the Philletes of 1980:

{You’ve spent a lot of time in Philly. What would a championship mean to the city if the Phillies pull it off?

I remember the parade in 1980. I remember Tug McGraw holding the Daily News up, and it said “We Win.” Five letters. There were 105,000 people at JFK Stadium. It was extraordinary. And I was at the Canyon of Heroes with the Mets after the ’86 season, and they had four million people there. I wouldn’t say it took a back seat to Philadelphia, but it wasn’t any better.}

Add Metsgrrl to the growing number of Mets fans who are tired of bailing out the Skill Sets and what their ticket refund NOW!!!!

Please Jerry Reece Make this happen!!!!!

For the fourth game in a row the Rangers Victory Song played as the Blueshirts held on to a 4-3 win in Cheesesteakville last night. I wonder if Brandon Dubinsky could join the Mets in the summer? By the way we need a name for the Dubinsky-Zherdev-Voros line, I submit the “Dubi-Do’s”   

The Wee Columnist of the NY Daily News has a rant today telling the Mets and Highlanders to stay away from Manny Ramirez as he is a very, very bad man. Unlike Little Luppy  who is universally despised by his peers for his nasty attitude and never leaving his compound in New Caan to cover a sporting event he bloviates on in his rag, oh and yes Luppy tell us again that you didn’t throw Lisa Olson under the bus and steal her Super Bowl story?
