How could we possibly be having more rain?
Good morning, class. And Happy Passover.
As you know, the Devils rolled over for the Flyers last night, further lengthening your playoff chances, and forcing me to the realization that the second annual Boneheads “Paul Mara” Playoff Beard contest is probably not happening this year. Because even if they do squeak in on the final weekend, there won’t be enough time to organize it and get people involved (especially since the playoffs might not even last a week).
Just another bad break for our traffic. This season we’ve had some bum breaks, including that we no longer have Sam Weinman full-time on the beat; that we had a stretch in one of our biggest months, November, in which the Rangers played three times in 13 days; that we had an Olympic break; that we had no coaching change as we had last year; no trades at the deadline; and now no playoffs. Ugh. It has all hurt our numbers to a degree, but you guys have still made this the biggest/best Rangers blog anywhere.
Anyway, just wondering if there’s something we could do here during the playoffs in place of the Paul Mara contest. Suggestions?
MSG Network contacted me, to tell me I was wrong, that the guy in the radio commercial does say “Graig” Nettles not “Craig” Nettles. They sent me an audio clip. To me it still sounds like Craig. I apologize.
For those of youse who want to come on here and talk politics, try this site. And remember, 99 percent of all politicians give the rest a bad name.
MORNING UPDATE, 11:24 AM: The Rangers have called up Corey Locke, apparently to take Avery’s spot.
