  1. The last guy, with the blue Rangers hat, looks like Derek Morris. And one of the other younger looking guys looks like Stiffler from the American Pie movies.

  2. ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!! Best blog ever! This is going to be totally hilarious! Too bad we don’t know who’s who…but I KNOW I saw lil miss sally there!!!! And I agree with Nasty on both counts!

  3. Haha, no problem Stiffmeister. And neither of those were meant to be insults at all.

  4. Rick,

    This is awesome!!! Who is who though! Can we wader on the girls and guys?!?!?! LOL

  5. Maybe there can be a second prize. We can find out all the names of the people who submitted pics, and the person who can put the most names to faces wins. Carp, you can’t play. Ha.

  6. Unemployed Steve (formerly sesak) on

    Carp, pretty good response. I agree that this will be hilarious.

  7. I am the angry looking one with the ginger beard already in full sprout A-La Paul Mara. I started growing it when our season turned into a 3 games series to make the playoffs. Fresh shave post our 1-0 loss to boston.

  8. No Country For Old Rangers on

    This is contest is both awesome/hilarious.. i was camping all weekend and thus missed NYRs encouraging performance yesterday. redden has been saving up all his good plays for the playoffs. rangers in 5 with wade and drury leading the way!

  9. I would like to share an experience with all of you. I was recently promoting the new Doritos Flavors Midnight Tacos and Last Call Jalapeno Poppers. Well, I would still like to promote Midnight Tacos, but definitely recall my recommendation of Last Call Jalapeno Poppers. I ate some late last night, after I got home from my Easter outing to my uncle’s house. I was watching a DVR of the game. Anyway, my wife warned me not to eat them so close to going to sleep, but like many a time, I just laughed her off, put my arm around the bag and snuggled it a bit, and then made sweet love to the nice looking bag of chips and a tall glass of diet pepsi. You know, the refreshing looking glass, where the bubbles are fizzing around the ice cubes and the carbonation is making the bubbles kind of jump and dance. Anyway, I ate a good amount of the chip and finished the soda and finished the game. I strolled upstairs and went to bed.
    I could not fall asleep for the life of me. I had the WORST heartburn I have ever experienced. I felt like I was having a heart attack that was surely going to be the end of me. I was watching the hours roll by. At one point my wife woke up and looked at me and just shook her head, like she often does. And she said to me, “I am not even going to say I told you so.” Which, to me, is worse than actually saying I told you so. I was sitting up, sweating, and praying to make it through the night. Around 4 I let out the BIGGEST burp of my entire life. So loud and long that Booger from “Revenge of the Nerds” would have given me a standing ovation. My cat even jumped off the bed and ran out of the room. Needless to say, I felt much better after this and fell asleep immediately. Anyway, the point to my story is, STAY AWAY FROM LATE NIGHT JALAPENO POPPERS DORITOS!!!! STAY AWAY!!!!!!

  10. I miss the 78-79 NY Rangers (formerly Prucha25) on

    The guy with the blue button front shirt looks like Danny Briere.

  11. And I guess the women among us, myself included, are relegated to cheerleading duty. Sigh.

  12. if you folow it you will probably win becuase my little brute is retarded when it comes to fighitng apparently sadly thats all she is supposed to do…

  13. I also wanted to say, no disrespect to Sam Wienman, but ever since Carp and Jane took over this blog, it definitely has stepped up so many notches. It is more of an experience now than just a blog. Ha. What I am trying to say is, thanks to the both of you for making it fun on here. There is even less interblog fighting, ha. I guess this blogs answers the old question with a resounding yes, we can all just get along……until the Rangers lose a game of course.

    I agree.

    One of the people in the contest looks like Callahan and Staal’s lovechild. The guy right before Nasty 1.

    Speaking of Briere, was it his stick that hit Rozsival in the head at the end of that game in the scuffle?

    I didn’t see it I am sorry. technically they say they don’t allow zoom lenses. That said I always go in with a back pack and my large lens (75-300) is always inside a purse (which I use as a camera bag it also holds my extra memory cards and a wipe for the lenses, along with different cables for uploading pics) inside that bag. They feel the bag and haven’t ever felt tht the lens is in there. THey have never seen me go in with that large lens I have a smaller (18-55) zoom lens on the camera when I carry it (otherwise I would break my neck)

    so the policy is it isn’t allowed but they have never stopped me. Just hold open your bag or whatever before you get to the security .

    Once at the Rock they said I couldn’t bring in the little lens.. but I just pleaded that was the lens that came with the camera and they let me in. You could venture that approach as well if they stop you. But I have never had a problem.

  17. Thanx Agra…I will just go to MSG with the 18-55mm on the camera body and hide the big lens.

    The Canon Rebel XSi has a sports mode….is that what I should be using? Any tricks from you or Tony from Zona is well appreciated.

  18. Liquid, use a high ISO & be carefull of the “auto” mode. Some times you get good exposures but blurry pictures.
    Also, don’t shoot from behind the stupid netting.

  19. Awesome slideshow!

    I’m the one with the Rangers hockey hat on. God I look so young w/o any facial hair lol

    I’m looking forward to this playoff series and have made a bold prediction that the Rangers win in 6. Call it crazy, call it optimism, whatever. If anyone is interested in reading my Five Keys to Beat the Capitals, just click on my username, it links to my Examiner page. :)

  20. Tony in AZ, the one with the hat, or the one in the white collared shirt? I’m gonna go out on a limb and say the gentleman WITH the hat!!

  21. Just to clear this up:

    MSG Network will televise all the first-round games except those on NBC. Versus has no exclusivity in the first round. The games that are listed for Versus will be on Versus across the country, but also on MSG Network.

  22. I’m totally losing this one, can it be compared to Crosby’s beard growing? I may have a shot against him

  23. Sally, you linked us to a picture of you and Sam Rosen a few weeks ago, saying when your nose grew up it wanted to be sam rosens! I remember these crazy things!!! You got a lil evil grin going on this one, i think you might win!! Wow, there’s even someone on here who kinda looks like Avery!

    Joseph C, if you can grow 4 chin hairs, you beat Cindy Bettman by one!!! I think you can do it!

  24. BrooklynDomi on

    Haha Carp you decided to put my pic up!

    im the youngster with the fresh shave and the white rangers fitted hat on

  25. BrooklynDomi on
