Since there seems to be some confusion behind the message of the previous post, a quick clarification:
When I urge fans to take a deep breath and perhaps step away from hockey for a moment, I say so not to try to convince anyone that all is well with your team. In fact, if all truly was well, I’d say talk Rangers all you want the next couple of days.
But because this team indeed has serious flaws and right now is clearly a source of frustration to many, I’m of the belief the current state of the Rangers shouldn’t spoil your holidays.
Regardless of what you believe in or how you celebrate, I think this time should be for embracing the good in your life—not for dwelling on the things that might make you crazy.
Either way, I’m appreciative of the passion and the loyalty shown on this blog.
