ON OPENING DAY, LET ‘EM WEAR 8

 

The Montreal Canadians conducted a beautiful tribute to Gary Carter complete with a moving, emotional video tribute and an appearance by Youpi

The Mets have not yet announced what they will do to honor Kid, so if I may, let me make a suggestion. How about on opening day, every member of the Mets uniform personnel wear CARTER 8 on their brand new 50th Anniversary uniform jerseys.  Then after the game, each Met autographs the jersey he wore and auction it off for charity with the money going Carter’s Foundation.

I feel this would be perfect tribute to not only a great Mets player but as we’ve seen that last few days a man who touched so many lives.

HAPPY HOCKEY DAY IN AMERICA

NY Ranger Royalty

Today for some reason is called Hockey Day in America and NBC is airing three early afternoon games and Versus gets the Heritage Classic, an outdoor games between the Montreal Canadians and the Calgary Flames  in Calgary (wait, Hockey Day in AMERICA and the headline game is being played in CALGARY, ALBERTA CANADA?) so to make my contribution to the day, I’m off to MSG for what could be a old time slobberknocker between the NY Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers. I will also stop into the Tim Horton’s in Penn Station for an apple fritter and coffee eh?

Alright all together now, “Oh the good old hockey game, is the best game you can name, and the best game you can name is  the good old hockey game”…………….everybody “oh the good old hockey game……………
