One man’s junk is another man’s … memorabilia


From MSG:


Variety of Exclusive Madison Square Garden Memorabilia will be Available Throughout the Transformation

New York, NY, May 12, 2011— The Madison Square Garden Company and Steiner Sports Collectibles announced today that they are partnering to offer collectors and avid fans the chance to own a piece of The World’s Most Famous Arena. MSG-Steiner Collectibles which already offers fans rare and unique artifacts, memorabilia and hand-signed items for the Knicks, Rangers, and Liberty, will now be offering fans a variety of unique exclusive Madison Square Garden memorabilia as a result of The Garden Transformation. The first items that will be available beginning today are authentic seats from The Garden. The announcement was made by Steiner chairman Brandon Steiner and Scott O’Neil, president of MSG Sports.

“While construction crews work around the clock to transform The World’s Most Famous Arena into the world’s most spectacular arena, we were intent on preserving some history for our best and most loyal fans. We have the seat you sat in for the ’94 Stanley Cup run and Larry Johnson’s 4-point play, and the seat you stood next to when you went to see Elton John or Billy Joel for the fifth time,” said O’Neil. “MSG-Steiner Collectibles is offering these seats as well as other one-of-a-kind pieces that represent not just Madison Square Garden’s history, but New Yorkers and visitors from around the world’s history at Madison Square Garden.”

“What a showcase item,” said Steiner. “It will be a kick to watch a game televised on MSG Network at home, sitting in a Garden chair.”

Madison Square Garden is currently undergoing a comprehensive top-to-bottom transformation that will make the Arena a state-of-the-art building. During the current Knicks and Rangers offseason the arena is shut down to complete work on the lower bowl. When the building opens for the 2011-12 seasons it will include all new lower bowl seating area, expanded Madison Concourse (lower concourse) with city views and additional food and beverage offerings, all new Event Level Suites and club spaces. The current Madison Square Garden opened in 1968; this is the fourth location for the Arena. Additional memorabilia from The Garden will be available through MSG-Steiner Collectibles at a later date.

The Madison Square Garden seats are priced at $899.99 for a pair and $549.99 for an individual seat, and are available in two colors, fuchsia and teal. To order call 800-759-SCORE or log onto

MSG-Steiner Collectibles is also currently offering: Game-used 2011 Playoff Jerseys worn by both Knicks and Rangers players, as well as game-used collectibles from the exciting 2010-2011 season, including the Amar’e Stoudemire New York Knicks Game Used Uniform 11×14 Framed Collage, and the Henrik Lundqvist New York Rangers Game Used Net 11×14 Collage.

    Great I can’t wait to clear out my savings for this garbage…..Good thing those seats are in nice Florida colors. They will go well in my non-existent summer home.

  2. Bill from Jersey on

    They’re seriously some of the most uncomfortable seats in the world. I just hope they clean them before I buy eight.

  3. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Crack of Noon!

    If they are selling old useless stuff from the Garden, when does Sather go on sale?

    And Redden…
    And Drury…

  4. Doodie Machetto on

    I already suffer through watching a game in them 10-15 times a year. Why would I want to bring that pain home?

  5. Doodie Machetto on

    Does Sather come with his humidor?

    Also, Drury is not worthless. He has intangibles.

  6. The seats have intangibles. … dirt, odor, stains, bad colors, bad memories. … they should have sold the old red, orange, green and blue seats.

  7. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    You’re right, Drury is NOT worthless, he can always serve as a bad example…

  8. LOL! I hate the turquoise seats!

    I never understood why purple and turquoise were chosen for the color theme in MSG. So ugly!!

  9. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    I can see buying memorabilia in the MSG Corporation, so long as they don’t throw some stock shares in with it.

  10. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    I would imagine that Sather would go for a lot of money because we would all pay a bunch of money to get him out of there.

  11. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    I know NYR – can’t we just trade seats with some Florida team? These colors are SO Florida.

  12. I met my wife in the Montreal Forum on Oct. 5, 1991, which also happened to be Messier’s first game as a Ranger. Nemchinov in OT for those who don’t remember. We bought the seat she was sitting in that night when they gutted the Forum for about $200. So, I know how cool it would be to have an MSG seat in the house, however, I agree with Carp that I would rather have had an old blue seat.

  13. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Carp – is that a reference from the greatest movie ever…”The Jerk”???

  14. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    morning ILB and all!

    you should be able to afford that with your winnings!!

    That yemelin guy the habs signed sounds like a pretty good player.

    Who is this frolov you speak of??

    I’m not sure who I want to win the sharks wings series, but I think the wings are in the sharks heads a bit…..

  15. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    the jerk=”the cans, not the cans”!!!

  16. i’m so confused now.
    do i make a comment about tonight’s game
    or go back to the previous Carp posting
    or just shut the hell up
    go take a nap
    (must try decaf)

  17. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Sally – How do you like my nickname for you of “Straight Soldier”?

  18. here, jpg.

    Sally, you could probably buy a pair of seats from that tip Ryan Miller left you.

    Scott, I was at that game. The Forum was awesome! Now that’s a piece of memorabilia. I have a pair of old wooden seats from the old Yankee Stadium, pre-renovation. I wouldn’t spend the kind of money they wanted for the cheap post-1975 plastic seats, though.

  19. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    for your sake I hope so!!

    Congrats btw on your victory, I knew we were all fighting for first place for losers once you were entered!!

    well done sir, well done!

    All the other participants
    you are all winners in my book!!

  20. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I would love to know the origin of that one

  21. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Straight Soldier you mean? I got it from some skaters. I enjoy Skateboarding (even though I am horrible at it) and I saw some guy (John Cardiel) reviewing a skate video and when people did a big, awesome move he would call that move, or person, Straight Soldier. When I saw Sally’s awesome septum ring I knew that she was super cool and deserved to be called “Straight Soldier.”

  22. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    well done manny, love it

  23. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Why does MSG refer to the Garden as the world’s most famous arena, so long as Arco Arena is still standing?

  24. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    In case you want to see this amazing review of the most recent issue of Thrasher Magazine:

    That is not safe for work or children – Skaters do not have good language skills.

    Another great line from The Jerk: “Johnson, Navin R. Sounds like a typical Bastard.”

  25. billybleedsblue on

    I guess if you can afford season tickets at the garden, 900 smackers for a pair of smelly beer-soaked seats is not but a drop in the bucket.

    So, the Garden is saving money on less dumpsters for the renovation, and making more on selling “memorabilia?” Gimme a break, what a scam. At least there’s no public funds involved in the renovation (as far as I know).

  26. billybleedsblue on

    Manny, the guy doing that Thrasher review… he’s gotta be a West-coast relative of Mr. Boudreau.

  27. hockeypuckck on

    don’t look now but there are snails on that plate! in a fancy restaurant like this – bring me those grilled cheese appetizers you talked me out of… and none of this old wine! bring us something fresh! something from this year

  28. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    HAHAHA He totally is probably!

    That guy has an amazing story actually. So he was a pro skater in the late 80s into the 90s and when he was pretty young (like early 20s) he was filming a skate video in Australia. He was joking around and running alongside their van. The trailer of the van rattled lose and ran him over. He was pronounced paralyzed for life and through sheer will and courage got himself to walk again. Although he can’t skate anymore he does ride fixed gear bikes and is still a fixture around the sport.

    The point is – he and Bruce had to overcome adversity.
    Bruce = Fat
    John Cardiel = Paralyzed

  29. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Yes! hockeypuckck! Nice!

    “Why are you wearing that old dress? Put on a new dress!”
    “I heard a song that reminded me of the way we were.”
    “What song was it?”
    “The way we were!”

  30. agree with Carp
    that it would be nice for sharks
    to get “gorilla” off their
    of course, i think that won’t happen til
    they reach and/or win Stanley Cup finals
    on the other hand
    i do enjoy the success of red wings
    and how it must drive the “european players are
    wussies and aren’t good enough in the playoffs” crowd
    i really really dislike todd “cripple someone and don’t take anger management but get forgiven more than sean avery” bertuzzi
    in conclusion

  31. billybleedsblue on

    Wicky, how long have you been running that scam? haha, kidding, but seriously, how’d u find that? Under the terms and conditions it says,

    “If subscriber loses his/her faith and/or the Rapture occurs and subscriber is not Raptured (aka is “left behind”) EE-BP disclaims any liability; no refund will be tendered.”

  37. Anyone see that idiot Damian Goddard from Rogers Sportsnet got the boot today for supporting Todd Reynolds and his anti-gay comments about the Sean Avery commercial.

    Ilb – I apologize in advance for all this quoting!

  39. hockeypuckck on

    oh i’m picking out a thermos for you.
    not an ordinar thermos… for you.
    but the extra best thermos you can buy,
    with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in!
    i’m picking out a thermos for you,
    and maybe a barometer too.
    and what else can i buy so on me you’ll rely,
    a rear end thermometer too.

  40. Doodie Machetto on

    Ack, I saw that. What an idiot. Just keep your mouth shut. It’s that simple.

  41. Doodie Machetto on

    Or at the very least, run it by your superiors before you say anything.

  42. hockeypuckck on

    cmon doodie how can you not love this stuff. some steve martin i can do with out but i can quote the jerk all day. one of just a handful of movies that i can probably recite from start to finish.

    this made my day! ill watch detroit san jose tonight, but the nyr offseason always hits me hard. i go a bit nuts.

  43. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Yea I know how you feel. It’s movies like, The Princess Bride, The Jerk, The Ghostbusters I and II, What about Bob?, and some others that get me through.

  44. Doodie Machetto on

    hockeypuckck, I just never really liked his movies. I think he’s done some really funny work, I just don’t like him for 90 minutes.

  45. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    AckP – do you live on Nantucket?

  46. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on


    I just realized that maybe the Rapture coming up on May 21st is really just Total Protonic Reversal.

  47. AckP

    i put up the link about goddard.


    i’ve started a Rapture fund.
    let all who feel that they will be getting Raptured
    on the 21st to send me all their money.
    i will take of it for them.

  48. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    msn canada had the end of the world 21st of may thing on its home page and the mrs and I were laughing our assens off at it and there were a few links in the article and that was one of them!!

  49. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    My buddy has a uniMOG or whatever. That huge Mercedes thing. It’s so cool but so impractical. It’s obviously just a family car that hangs out on their farm. Not like his main mode of transportation. Although, it’s awesome to note that his dad is 6’8″ and his two cars are a MOG and a Smart Car.

  50. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    that hurts, that really hurts!

    that’s sweet

  51. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Two in the box. Ready to go. We be fast and They be slow.

  52. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    “But the kids love us.”

    You know what I never got about the sequel? At the end of Ghostbusters I they are on top of the world. Everyone is cheering. Then apparently they get sued and are doing kids birthday parties by the beginning of Ghostbusters II. What a sad fall from grace.

    “I trust you’re moving us to better locations on Campus”

    Dean Yeager: No, you’re being moved off campus. The Board of Regents has decided to terminate your grant. You are to vacate these premises immediately.
    Dr Ray Stantz: What?
    Dr. Peter Venkman: This is preposterous. I demand an explanation.
    Dean Yeager: This university will no longer continue any funding for any of your group’s activities.
    Dr. Peter Venkman: But the kids love us!
    Dean Yeager: Doctor… Venkman. The purpose of science is to serve mankind. You seem to regard science as some kind of dodge… or hustle. Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy, and your conclusions are highly questionable! You are a poor scientist, Dr. Venkman!
    Dr. Peter Venkman: I see.
    Dean Yeager: And you have no place in this department, or this university.

  54. Reginald Dunlop

    Excuse me for asking, but did you know Norman MacLean? If he’s the same guy I knew back in the early 50’s at the old Garden, I have often wondered what became of him.

  55. Reginald Dunlop

    Excuse me for asking, but did you know Norman MacLean? If he’s the same guy I knew back in the early 50’s at the old Garden, I have often wondered what became of him. If you have run out of space, I’d appreciate it if you responded in the following string.

  56. Ellen Griswold: I honestly don’t think we’re going to find the Grand Canyon on this road.

    Clark: Make that the second biggest.

  57. billybleedsblue on

    She’s not my girlfriend. I find her interesting because she’s a client and because she sleeps above her covers…four feet above her covers. She barks, she drools, she claws!

  58. anybody seen “Easy Money” with Rodney Dangerfield? This one is one of my all time favorites!

    Monty: My mother-in-law, for years I wouldn’t kiss her face; I end up kissing her a$$.

  59. Sorry, haven’t been around much lately. Still have to finish a couple of papers, but I couldn’t resist to post on this one. This is what makes me mad. They couldn’t sell any of this junk and give at least some of the money to charity? I have a good amount of Rangers memorabilia, but every single of them was from some sort of charitable sale. Some partial, some 100% for charity. And none of the items I have is through Steiner’s. I’m sure they participate in some charitable events, but I was not able to find it yet. Honestly, if they gave at least 50% of their revenue to any good charity, I’d not hesitate for a second and bought a pair of those smelly chairs. Idiots.

  61. Redden was Sather’s attempt at becoming “Debt Financed”. He heard it worked for some of the investment banks so tried it out on a hockey team…

  63. ilb, shame on you for abandoning us.

    fran, Norman is still around all the pro sporting events in NY. Unbelievably, perhaps.

  64. If any of you can ever find an uncut version of the Movie, “Lovers and Other Strangers” produced by David Susskind years was one of the funniest pics I’ve ever seen. Stiller and Mara were in it, along with Joe Bologna, and the big woman of Maude ( Bea something) funny funny stuff.

  65. Johnny LaRue on

    Where am I going to put a pair of MSG seats what with Merv Griffin’s old set taking up the whole living room?

  66. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    “So where are you gonna sleep?”

  67. Fried Man, I don’t know about the new nickname as I am neither of those things. Thank you for the compliment about my septum ring – I have been told a few times that I have “the right nose to anchor it”. Also “What About Bob?” is one of my favorites ever.

    Wicky, you are awesome.

  68. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Sally you are indeed Straight Soldier! Don’t you forget it. It’s just a cool term for super awesome stuff.

    I had my nose ring taken away in my younger days. My tattoos have been laser removed (mostly). My life has become too normal.

  69. btw, looks like Jagr is still wearing Rangers gloves. Just saw some highlights from Czech – USA game

  70. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Is that Jagr in Sally’s picture? That guy is wearing Ranger’ish gloves.

  71. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    A. Does Sather watch the Worlds; and
    B. Does Spezza’s team play the Rangers at MSG anytime soon?

  72. Manny,

    Glad to see you enjoy “What About Bob?” Now, can your lunch match your cinema?

  73. Doodie Machetto on

    CCCP, he should be well rested since he took the first half of the season off.

  74. Doodie Machetto on

    Latona, your forced transitional dialogue about food is similar to the chairman on Iron Chef.

    I’m not complaining. I’m just saying.

  75. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    thanks, right back at ya!

  76. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    thanks, thought it was pretty damn amusing myself!

  77. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Today I got a delightful Black Forest Ham and American Cheese sandwich on Multigrain Hero style bread, with Light Mayonnaise, Tomatoes, Lettuce and Cucumbers. I also had a bag of Sour Cream and Onion Pop Chips on the side and for kicks….and because the weather is so nice…a CAN of Diet Orange Sunkist Soda. Whew!

  78. Fried Man, that is me! Wearing my game-worn Dubinsky gloves that were a present from a very wonderful bonehead.

  79. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Sorry S.S. Sally! That is one Burly beard. I didn’t recognize you! As they say in high schools, “My B[ad].”

    Thanks Doodie – I never knew what the heck he was saying. I just knew he was wearing shiny clothing and jumping a lot.

  80. Doodie Machetto on

    “The secret ingredient IS – HOCKEY PUCK!”

    Then my wife is a lock. She serves it up 6 nights a week.

  81. In the words of my uncle, I say to you…


    Manny, that was a very, very detailed description. You get bonus points for doing so. I had tabbouleh and pita for lunch. Repping’ the Levant like it’s my job.

  82. That’s funny, Doodie! :)

    Russia just got goal disallowed! That National team reminds of the Rangers the way they make Bernier look like Roy!

  83. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Thanks Latona. I am working on making my lunch descriptions more like the J. Peterman catalogue.

  84. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Not a bad idea billy! Let’s begin tomorrow. Will descriptions count?

  85. MSG has no shame. How many of those seats do they hope to sell? Especially, at those prices! I agree with ilb. If you are going to sell them, give the $$ to charity or at least half to charity.

  86. billybleedsblue on

    I would say that not only the content/quality of the meal, but the content/quality of the description of said meal would also hold weight. Example: If you can make 2 dirty water dogs and a can of coke sound amazing, I’d pick that over some other exotic (and expensive) lunch. Of course, ratings should be totally subjective on the part of the individual, so it’s entirely up to her to decide what’s most important, including how much (or how little) she likes the contest participant. Now, only to get a voting widget set-up… :D

  87. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Lol Doodie. Here is my shot at describing the sandwich in a J. Peterman style…..

    “Today I ate my Urban Ham and Cheese Hero. Multigrain Bread makes this delight Light on Carbs and High on Fiber to maintain that Urban slim fit body. Not too salty, yet tangy when Mayo and Yellow American cheese are combined with the succulent flavors of a smoked black forest ham. Topped with and innocent, yet explorational mix of simple spring vegetables: Tomatoes, Cucumbers and Lettuce combine to bring this fresh and delightful season to life in your mouth. Eat on weekends, holidays or workdays. Just be sure to do so in bliss. Utter bliss.”

  88. billybleedsblue on

    LOL “Eat on weekends, holidays or workdays.”

    Oh man, I’m in too (assuming I’m near a keyboard)!

    How do we set this up? When are submissions due by? Contest should be weekdays only?

    If we keep a tally, we can announce a winner come next season?

    Also, lacking the set-up, we can just have a loose vote, duh, this is obviously just for fun.

    Also, keep in mind that there would really be no way to certify or verify said lunch, so lots of fibbing could go on, which could be fun…

  89. Manny, here’s your lunch Jackie Chiles style.

    “Urban Ham and Cheese Hero? Delicious, delectable, delightful, outrageous!”

  90. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    I guess we should let the contest begin when Latona asks what someone had for lunch….then entries can be accepted for 1 hour? 2 hours? and then we all vote and crown a winner! No prizes unfortunately.

    Maybe Sally can donate some beard hairs? We could give those out to be eaten with the food.

  91. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    HAHA Latona – Spot on.

    Last night the hot coffee episode was on so I am kind of on a Jackie Chiles kick today. Perfecto!

  92. I usually get on the site any time between 3 and 4 on weekdays. I think weekends may be too difficult to have the contest on.

  93. Doodie Machetto on

    I’m in on the lunch contest. It might make me feel more satisfied with the lousy dieting.

  94. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Yea weekdays only. Latona is the one who fires the gun. Like the person at the beginning of the drag race. Or does that make him the topless girl who waves the flag?

  95. Doodie Machetto on

    Rangers just signed their 2010 5th rounder. He has AHL lifer written all over him.

  96. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Doodie what did you eat today? Give me a taste of this “diet” you speak of.

  97. Doodie Machetto on

    Today was worse than usual. Not in contest style, I ate a bag of precut/washed salad. We were out of salad dressing so I ate it dry. It was pretty brutal. And I was still hungry afterwards.

  98. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Hey guys….Has anyone actually taken a gander at the title of this post? It’s pretty double entendre hilarious..

    “Another Man’s Junk (!!!???) is another man’s memorabilia….”

    Does this refer to Rasputin?

  99. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Doodie!? You ate DRY salad? You have to win an award for toughest eater on the blog. That is impressive. That’s like a rabbit. I cannot eat a dry salad.

  100. Lunch contest? this could be interesting! But i must warn you all… i never, i repeat NEVER refuse myself from a delicious lunch!


  101. Doodie Machetto on

    In contest style:

    Leafy greens, contrasted with the vivid purple cabbage and the orange carrots, make the prebagged salad alone a fine dining experience. But the addition of a handful of the bright red cherry tomatoes makes it truly sublime. You won’t even miss the dressing as you crunch through the salad, occasionally getting the tart burst of cherry tomato. Even with the massive size, you’ll be left wanting more…

  102. Thanks Doodie! I know Canadians don’t really give a damn about this tournament the way Russia and other pansy Euro Countries do… but still… feels good to win!

  103. I may have to crown Doodie honorary winner for scarfing down crap. I think the contest should begin officially on Monday. Entries from whenever I initiate the the discussion until, say, two hours later? Gives some Boneheads time to return from work/school/extra-curricular activities.

  104. billybleedsblue on

    Nice. I think that we should be allowed to post our entries at any time during the day. Like, if you can only get on here at 11 AM, that’s ok, and then the end of the contest would be Latona at 3 or 4 asking, “What did everyone have for lunch today?” I dunno, I’m just saying, it might be easier to have the entries accepted at any time up until a set time. whattaya think?

  105. Doodie Machetto on

    CCCP, I doubt that. I think Canadians care VERY much about this tourney. Look at their stacked roster.

  106. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    Monday it is. And yes – Doodie get’s an honorary title for today for not only eating that but making it sound somewhat delicious.

    Can we call the contest, “One Man’s Junk is another man’s lunch”

  107. If you guys want, I can abstain from the competition and select the winner each day, as I did begin the lunch hype. It may be more efficient that way, and it would mostly negate any voting disputes. But, if you guys think I should play, I’ll play. And you’ll all lose miserably to the awesomeness that is my lunch.

    I’m not trying to sound stuck-up or anything like that; just trying to think of ways to make the contest run smoothly.

  108. That’s absolutely fine, billy. However, entries can only be on the most recent post. If there is a new post submitted during the day, post lunch comments on the original thread for that date.

    It’s a fake contest with fake winners and no prizes. If there’s a voting dispute, whoever disputes is automatically the loser.

    Yea Latona – good point. You obviously are distinguishing yourself as the organizer. I think you should compete and maybe we should all vote? Just because there are so few people on here during the off season and so few of us that eat and share.

    I will dispute daily then!

    In law school I was on the Student Government and for the ENTIRE 3 years of my tenure I abstained from every single vote that was taken. Like a true politician.

  112. That sounds good, Manny. I shall participate. Any other concerns?

    And hey, maybe if someone ABSOLUTELY runs away with this contest, I’ll volunteer a gift card to a restaurant or something. No promises.

    Canada had a pretty young roster and according to Nash’s pre-game interview: “its just a World Cup and we are not worried” maybe he tried to downplay or whatever but… we won and they lost!!

    Maybe we can count up all the winners and find out who won the most (from Monday until the Puck drops on the season) and then we can pool our money and give that person $10 for lunch. For being the best winner! (That is like $1.35 a person)

  115. Carp

    I’d lost track of him from my days in the old Garden where he ruled the gallery gods.
    I met him one night at the old New Haven Arena where the NH Ramblers were farm team of Rangers, and he’d come up from NY to view their prospectives. He was in line behind me ( he’s twice my height you know), and this grinning guy right behind me in line sort of inched forward as I handed in my ticket and he pushed right into the arena with me – no ticket for him. I saw these glasses and grin, and Hi laughed at the efrontery of him, to pull that one off, and he introduced himself to me. That began a friendship that lasted for several years, he’d come to NH and I’d let him sneak in, and I’d go to the Garden and he’d hold me at the outer entry and then when a crowd came thru he’d brush right thru them and drag me with him. We had some great games.
    We alwasy stood at the rail ( you couldn’t see nada if you sat)O and if one of his germs ( that’s what he used to call them), crowded me out he’d grab the guy and move himover and explain that I was his honored guest. Then they all took to me. What a crew. But fun.!!! I wound up reenlisting in the service because I was badly inneed of a job, and we lost touch. I hope that he’s well and is happy. Does he still live upthere in Yonkers or White Plains or so?

  116. I can organize a table or something to keep track of everything. I would need a list of everyone participating; entries will be accepted until Carp posts on Monday morning. Does that sound good?

  117. MannyFried a/k/a The Dread Pirate Roberts on

    I am IN. Get me on that table (that’s what she said). I am ready to get this on! (that’s what she said).

    Nice, I like it when a plan comes together! Good work guys!

    Count me in! I will participate when I am able to, and may this count as my registration into the contest! Hopefully extra points will be awarded for creativity and tom-foolery, both categories at which I naturally excel!

  119. So I have myself, Manny, CCCP, Doodie, and Billy so far.


    Sally is the ultimatum. Elected winners can be overruled at by Sally any point in time. Even months later. Also, if nobody has a worthy lunch, Sally automatically wins for that day.
