Unfortunately, no John Tortorella press conference tonight … he did his talking … or not-talking … at the morning skate, as is his option. Hopefully that won’t become a habit, because I’m not getting my aasen down here for morning skates very often, if ever.
Will have a Go Time later.
The Rangers are going to do this Blue Carpet thing for MSG Network. Not sure what that’s going to be about, but it’s raining here, so that might put a, ahem, damper on things.
Before the game there will be a brief video tribute to Derek Boogaard, and that’s cool. It’ll be nice to give the fans a chance to have their moment of silence for him. I love those video shots of him playing with the kids at Garden of Dreams, and of course his one goal as a Ranger was a classic.
Not sure what other entertainment of hoopla will be involved with the pre-game ceremony,
PS, don’t forget post-game, for youse really immature Boneheads, Beavis & Butt-head make their triumphant return to MTV at 10. Sadly I will have to await reruns.
Also wanted to ask you guys a big, big, gigantic favor.
I really want this place to grow. The more traffic we get, the more time gets built into my schedule to cover the Rangers and spend doing this.
So, please, please try to remember that any time you happen to be in the company of Rangers fans (or potential Rangers fans, or non-Rangers fans, whatever) please spread the word about this blog. Tell them to go to Rangers Report, or to google it, or give them the url — rangers.lohudblogs.com. Tell them how much fun we have, and how it’s still the best place on the planet for discussion 24/365.
Tell them about the j(g)ibberish and the special vocabulary and the Boneheads, and all the other fun stuff (Manny’s co-worker having lunch at 9:42 a.m.).
I’m counting on youse all to kick in here and get the gospel going. Sing it sisters (and brothers).
Thank you kindly for your support.
