Tom Renney shrugged at a question just now about what the best start in franchise history would mean to him.
“I’d be happy for the players. That’s great for them,” Renney said. “It’s a nice little feather, but it’s a big headdress.”
It’s a running theme, if you haven’t noticed.
Some other notes:
“Which one?” the rookie center said.
They all look good to me, I said.
“I haven’t been that lucky this year,” Korpikoski said.
The kid’s got a point.
Heart-Pounding, Jaw-Dropping, and Gut-Wrenching Moments from New York Rangers History”:http://www.amazon.com/Good-Ugly-York-Rangers-Heart-Pounding/dp/1572439653/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1224107168&sr=1-1 which is an entertaining tour of the team’s rich past. I dug into it this afternoon and stumbled across a number of worthwhile new nuggets.
For instance, did you know that the classic rock band, Foreigner got its inspiration for the song “Double Vision” after watching John Davidson take a shot to the mask?
The only problem with this anecdote is that I now have that awful song stuck in my head.
Other than that, great book….
