Well, it’s good to see the mere sight of the name “Jason Krog”:http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070113/SPORTS01/701130388/1046/SPORTS stirs such passions in all of you.
I remember back in college, with our heads buried in our coats on another raw New Hampshire winter day, I turned to Krog and said, “One day I’m going to do a blog entry on you and Rangers fans are going to go nuts.”
Of course, this isn’t true, seeing how in the winter of 1995-96, I didn’t know what a blog was, and the only friend of mine who knew anything about the Internet was my electrical-engineering major roommate.
Needless to say, he makes more money than I do now. And so, for that matter, does Jason Krog…
Anyway, on a much sadder note, as interested as I am to see how the Rangers’ newest acquisition fares today, I will instead be at a funeral to say goodbye “to a good friend and a good man who left this world way too early”:http://www.nyjnews.com/obits/Obit1.php?pid=2146204. As I’ve said before on this site, there are times when we all attach a certain gravity to these games we watch. Then come days like today, when Rangers vs. Bruins seem fairly trivial.
Either way, this leaves the versatile Brian Heyman in my place at the Garden today, and for all his many talents, Brian will gladly admit he’s not the most tech savvy among us. Hence, the updates will be lacking. To start, though, count on Henrik Lundqvist in goal, and of course, Krog somewhere at center.
Feel free to use this space for discussion amongst yourself, and I’ll be sure to check in once I’ve caught myself up to speed.
