Hi kids. I’m at the Senior Players golf championship today, then on vacation for a week Monday.

Not going anywhere, so I’ll be here a whole bunch during the vacation, but we do have a pile of guest bloggers lined up. Hope they all remember to write and to send me their stories the night before they are due.

Got nothing else.

See youse during the day.

  1. Good morning, boneheads!

    Last day of tennis for me, back to work tomorrow.
    Any hockey news, Carp? :-)

  2. here’s some news, ilb:

    Torts hasn’t named Callahan captain yet. ergo, Torts hates Callahan.

    Good morning, Sally!

  3. Valediction for Carp, going golfing:
    The game of golf would lose a great deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green.
    Ernest Hemingway.

  4. LMAO, Carp,
    Two around sport things I totally shamefully missed in my otherwise saturated life in this country – a game of baseball and sweet time killing in golf.

  5. After the Drury and Redden debacles I hope the next players contract hasgive back clauses for players who don’t live up to expectations. Example if you sign a contract with a team expecting 30 goals and you score 15 maybe a 50% cut in pay is in order. After all players hold out for more money when they score more than expected.

  6. The best clause in a new CBA would be: No “no-move” clauses. In other words, anybody can be expunged from the salary cap with a minor-league demotion. That might serve as incentive, eh?

  7. That’s a great course, Carp. I was there a few years ago for the Barclays. Looks like Freddy Couples in back in vintage form this weekend!

  8. Good morning, afternoon and evening, sweet Sally. How are you in an opposite remote corner of NY State? You’re not only promised, like Terminator, but also are really BACK! You’re definitely bigger than him (in my eyes that is, at least).

    My brother is a jerk. He calls me last night saying the Rangers made a trade and scooped up Dany Heatley for draft picks and a few minor players. I didn’t believe him and he was saying …fine if you don’t believe me but its true. I instantly went to the blog …..nope no news. I really did not know if we did such a thing, plus I wanted Spezza instead. I know now he was lying and him being an Oilers fan….I hope we murder those bums IF we play ’em this year!!!

  10. So late on this, sorry, but finally got around to reading 30/30 dealio. Can’t say I disagree with much, though of course I look forward to Carp’s thoughts when he can…

    I mostly like/agree with this though:
    “If the Rangers can avoid half the injuries they suffered last season, not only will they be a lock for the playoffs, but they’ll contend for the Atlantic Division. They have a solid group of young defensemen who showed improvement throughout last season and a world-class goaltender in Henrik Lundqvist there to cover up any mistakes.

    Consistency from the offense will be key. If the Rangers have it, they could find themselves in the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2008.”

    And I say this, Stanley! :)

    C3, I think that burp is from your gross FB post :)

  11. ugh guys I was just awakened by a siren going off here in Israel about a rocket attack… I have a flight to catch back to the US in a few hours. please hope for my safe return.

    Momma!!! The Rangers will make a push for the playoffs and the Stanley Cup. Look at those Filthy Philly Flyers …they had a bunch of stuff that made them bottom feeders one year..then to the finals the next year. They barely made it in the playoffs on game 82 frickin two in a SHOOT OUT of all things. They made it on our loss to them..it should ,coulda , and woulda been ours. Plus that one year Chris ” selfish” Drury won the game for the Sabres to ultimately lose us the playoffs. The point is we are CLOSE to a cup. We will win and youse all can be happy. Some peeps were not around in 1994 and we need anutha RANGER PARTAY!!!

    Yo 4ever , the Oilers ….thems the bums.

  13. ZzZz NYR ZzZz© "Are we in Europe yet?!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Safe return for you Lev , NOW GET THE HELL OUTTA THAT COUNTRY!!!!

  14. ZzZz , you’re mercyless…Don’t you have a sypathy for our former Mr. Nice Guy?
    Lev,
    are you in Beer-Sheva? Listen, come back in a one piece, please…But how about locals, kids, other people. Byfuglien, cooke carsillo terrorists, plague on their houses.

  15. Is anyone as happy as I am that Tiger Woods has fallen down and can’t get up? LOVE IT he’s done.

  16. Wicky(grating PIBG)© (The she/it on our D is sofa king SOFT!!!) on

    lev
    best of luck and safe travels!!

  17. Lev, get home safe. ilb is on his way there next week, and while I admire his motto of, we will not change our lives, I worry…..

    Greg, man, I have missed you!

    wicky, I will check what’s in the FB bag :)

    NY, can’t say I’m not unhappy :)

  18. Did any of you hear Glen Beck ( who is a huge Israel booster) say that he felt safer in Israel than in the US?

    Who does he hang out with?

  19. I just read something in the Hartford Howlings piece about their Whaler kids are going to be skating at Champion Skating arena in CROMWELL?????

    Where the heck is a hockey rink in CRomwell? I never heard of one,and it’s a beautiful little town on the CT River but most important it’s where my youngest daughter lives with her family…………. ( two girls who are champion swimmers). One has won a scholarship for competetive swimming from Pace Unversity in Westchester county.No one ever mentioned a Rink there. I’m gonna have to look into this!
