Merry Christmas to all, and to all …


That’s about all I’ve got to say today. Hope you and your family have a wonderful day.

I’m not going to give out any gifts, either, because you guys have already had 33 games worth of presents. You could not have asked for anything more, right?

See ya on Boxing Day when the Fishsticks come back to the Garden.

    Merry Christmas Carp.

    Now if we could get Marc Staal back it would be a Christmas miracle.

    Merry Christmas to Carp and all of the devoted Boneheads! I have never gotten used to wearing shorts in close to 70 degree temps on Christmas Day. Bon Natale

  4. Whatever Holiday you may celebrate best wishes for merry, happy and healthy times with your family and friends… Enjoy!!

  5. merry christmas all.

    My favorite Christmas Carol is We Three Kings of Orient Are. Where the three Magi travel to see the Newborn King. And all together, that makes it four kings at hand. That was the hand Mother was holding when she went all in and won the Holiday Poker Tournament. Then Mother bought everyone a brand new Lexus for Christmas, and (singing) …now we are traveling a-far.

    So, from one of the best of the Folkyerself family traditions, we want to wish you all a Very Merry Mother Four King Christmas!!!!

    Merry Christmas, all.

    I am a truly saddened by the glut of “secular” music in retail stores and on the radio. Hardly a “Silent Night, or an “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem” to be found, in deference to all the “Rockin Around The Christmas Tree,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and “Baby It’s Cold Outside” stuff.

    I don’t know about you but the pop stuff for the season has worn thin with me, whereas the standard Christmas carols will always sound beautiful and appropriate. Christmas just doesn’t have the same special meaning, anymore, out there in society, it is so commercialized. At least it remains special when gathered with family at home.

    I’m so happy it’s Christmas!!! Now I don’t have to listen to that byfuglein music anymore. Just liquor ads until New Year.

    What in Holy Hell? I didn’t get a Lexus for Christmas! I guess you gotta want it.

    I did get a shirt though… The World’s Greatest Dad. My son made it for me. The best in the world. Which means I’m better than just number one.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    We’re having ham for New Years Day.

    …and Have a Happy Got Ham New Year, yourself there Olga!

    I can’t buy liquor here until noon! What happened to separating church and state? I don’t want to spend the next 15 minutes outside a liquor store with the motor running… Cops will think I’m going to rob them.

  12. Izzy, I got your Lexus, but you have to lift it up over your head first.

    Another Tony? Another ilb? What in Holy Hell?

    In case Miami doesn’t make it here today: May you all have a bush league Christmas.

  13. Santa’s spreading propaganda! Let’s go Pinko!

    Am I the only one who avoids even thinking about the movie a Christmas Story the other 364 days a year so that I can sit and watch it over and over again on TBS?

  14. Merry Christmas Carp and my extended bonehead family. Today my youngest cat came and sat in my RR reading lap and started purring one of lifes little pleasures.

  15. James G I wait till Christmas to watch Christmas Story. Jean Shepherd one of my favorite story tellers from my youth. I used to listen to him after 10 pm on WOR radio every week night in the 60’s.

  16. Merry Christmas to all! Me wife got me a Ranger winter classic toque for Christmas. Some proud of that.

  17. Hey Orr I need tips on Xbox hockey. I got the newest version, and I don’t have a clue how to play it.

  18. The Rangers on Twitter have clearly got the company message about promoting the Knicks. Now awaiting Anisimov saying something about Time Warner Cable in Russian.

  19. I was just thinking after I asked the question, that it would be hard to give me any tips because I don’t have anything figgered out at all yet. So I wouldn’t have any idea what to ask. The only things I know so far is to shoot and skate, throw a check, and I have fought Chara, and dropped him to, more luck than good management on that. They run you through all that when you start. On the defence side of things I can’t get the puck at all. I have a hard time controling where the guy goes. I guess it just takes a lot of practise.

  20. In the spirit of Christmas, free lunch points to everyone who claims one! Do so by commenting back on this thread!

  21. Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to my Bonehead Buds and Budettes! I hope Santa was good to everyone last night!

  22. >>>I used to listen to him after 10 pm on WOR radio every week night in the 60’s.

    Me, too! He was the best!

    Merry Christmas to all on my favorite Rangers blog I think its time for dessert made a cheesecake and I can’t wait to bite into it actually I think at this time of the year we should always start with dessert instead of the 7 course meal lol

    Very nice thread, guys and dolls.

    Nice work, Olga, with the “mother” tongue.

    I’m wishin’ work for all who want it this year, and hope they get paid…

    God bless Iraq and Afghanistan, and everyone contained therein:-).

    My selfish self? Bad communication from friends and loved ones – I got three of the same damned Lexus model (y’know, the one with the understated red ribbon!) Please email
    if, by any chance, you didn’t get at least one….

  27. Ilb was born on Christma!? WOW. Happy Birthday.

    I second Wicky’s thank you to Carp. This place rules.

  28. Manny, ilb was a Christmas miracle :)

    nancy, that was an awfully nice post :)

    Hope nobody shot their eye out this year……

    and wicy, that wicky was my gift to you, though it doesn’t really count cause I didn’t say TA.

    sooooo. Merry TA all!

  29. So I drew a Rangers logo on my two year old brother’s magnet doodle tonight. When I showed it to him he just grinned. Looks like the Rangers got a new fan for Christmas : D
