518 It’s Go(ld) time!

Thanks to Blogmama for the title. And thanks to NYRGuy for the link on the last thread to that unbelievable story that the NHLPA booked Team USA players for Sunday morning flights. I am so jealous that I can’t watch this game live. Hope youse all enjoy. Don’t tell me…

27 Out of touch

That’s me. I’m going to be fairly useless the next couple of days. Six basketball games today (thanks to all the snow-outs) and I’ve lost count how many tomorrow. I only know I’ll be watching the bouncing ball when the gold medal is up for grabs in Wancouver. And not…

296 Edzo …

So after that Tremendously Tremendous first period and solid victory by the Red, White and Blue, I have this question for y’all: Do youse want Canada to win tonight so Team USA can go head-to-head with the Canucks for the Gold and take it right out of Hot Dog Lips’…

440 Medal day, snow day

Good late morning everybody! It’s a great day. Why? Because today we have the men’s Olympic semifinals, because today a lot of us don’t have to work (unless you count shoveling snow as work), and so today we can sit on our abdelkaders and watch hockey! I know that’s my…

226 And then there were four …

… Four teams, four Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist can get his rest now. The Swedes were sent home by the Slovaks. So the semifinals will have four Rangers: Chris Drury and Ryan Callahan for the U.S. against Olli Jokinen and Finland on one side, and Marian Gaborik for Slovakia against the…

556 Hello, is this thing on?

OK folks, mama here while Carp is on assignment. So sorry for the problems we’ve had today, and I hope this new post sets things right…Let me know! We think part of the problem may be that some of your creative fonts may have messed things up a bit (remember…

352 Meanwhile, back in the East (update 2)

… since we’re, you know, a Rangers blog, I thought I should point out that your heroes return to practice under assistant coaches Mike Sullivan and Jim Schoenfeld today. Or at least those Rangers who aren’t involved in that little tournament on the other side of the continent. About that…

487 Five-ring circus (updated)

All this talk about this being the last of the NHL’s participation in the Olympics has caused mixed feelings for me. Because of the professionals in the Games, we can’t see another Miracle On Ice, as much as NBC’s newbies want to try and fabricate one this year. There can’t…

192 Please allow me to reintroduce myself

Hi Boneheads! I’m back in action. (Good morning, Sally!). Before we talk about what’s going on in Vancouver (or Wancouver, as Esa Tikkanen said last week) I owe a big, big, big thank-you to Laurel, who did a magnificent job (not surprised by that, but still thrilled by it). I’m…

590 It’s go time! (morning update)

Well boneheads, not much more to add pre-game, and I’m going to settle in and watch (no TV timeouts!) so I’ll see ya all at intermission. It’s a good thing some of you are home…they’re closing the bars four hours early in Vancouver to prevent a lot of drunk and…

283 It’s Miller Time

Yes, cheap, easy headline, but true nonetheless. Today we’re talking NHL-level hockey. I think if the prime minster of Canada went on air tonight to say the country was seceding to Russia, nobody would turn the channel up north. It’s old news that USA is being declared the underdog —…

157 Today’s line-up…and a guest (updated 2)

Today’s Olympic line-up is all on MSNBC. Norway v. Switzerland at 3 p.m., Latvia v. the fighting Slovaks at 7:30, and Germany v. Belarus at midnight. And hooray for NBC! Two women’s semis games being played tomorrow (none USA), so they’re not on any channel line-up. Now, since things seemed…

264 Sports philosophy 101, per AO (evening update 5)

So, how’s everyone feeling about meeting up with Crosby on Sunday? I love how in this recap of last night’s near miss against Switzerland, they call the shootout a skills competition. And those Slovaks! Maybe they purposely scheduled back-to-back games after all? …And sometimes it rains, right AO? Here’s his…

537 Today’s line-up (updated, part 2)

Good morning Sally and all! Here’s your game line-up for today, featuring two of your New York Rangers. Should have been three, but Gabby’s still sidelined, now for three games as per Gross. I feel bad he’s missing the Olympics, but not so bad if he’s properly healed by the…
