Tortorella pre-game

89

Here’s John Tortorella’s pre-game presser.

He wouldn’t talk about the fine.

He spoke a bit about the team no longer being able to sneak up on anybody.

He wasn’t asked if he met with NBC to discuss the outcome of tonight’s game (just kidding! settle down!)

Here is is:

  1. Sorry if it was on last thread – Did you guys see The Hockey Rodent set up an account to pay Torts’s fine?

    “Click this button to donate two dollars to the John Tortorella, We’ve Got Your Back fund. Details”

  2. Here we come, ladies … I can smell it … 9-0 loss coming up … attribute it to post- Winter Classic hangover.

    Whatever you attribute it to … it’ll be utter bush-league.

  3. I’ll be watching the MSG broadcast through my TWC internet connection!

    Take that, Dolan!

    I’ll be listening to the radio broadcast tonight, if no working link is forthcoming – I don’t like being a pawn in a big power-game. :-(

    in case i forget later, a LGR now…LGR!!!

  6. JimboWoodside on

    OK, NYR – thank you! I also have internet access through TWC, so that’s why I asked you about your method for getting the game.

  7. JimboWoodside on

    It really sucks that we’re being held hostage by these 2 cable giants – I have not contacted DirecTV yet, simply because I figured that the 2 “big boys” would settle their peeing contest within a few days – now I’m not so sure…..

  8. JimboWoodside on

    Someone commented on this in an earlier thread, but Tappen is married to a debbie’s player, Jay Leach – makes her less desirable, in my eyes…

    carp
    I think it is one of the kardashians

  10. You can’t win because Dolan could pull the same crap with DirecTV or FiOS or whatever.

    Matter of fact, I believe MSG only recently gave DirecTV it’s HD feed…

    It’s a freaking joke. Traditional cable television is doomed to fail because of Internet streaming…

    I plan on cancelling cable altogether..

  11. …who’s married to Jay Leach?
    some female with an ego in size of Tappen Zee Bridge

  12. 4ever, everyone will be looking for links later. We should have a few working links posted at ‘Go Time’

  13. Why or why does this forum drift off to such mindlessness?

    That’s about 9 million times I’ve seen this woman’s name here, for reasons that escape me.

    Meanwhile, things are happening elsewhere. Sheesh.

  14. JimboWoodside on

    >>>So, at least we’ll get to watch that game on TV!

    I doubt it, ORR – NHL Net is usually blacked out in our area when a local game is being played.

    I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think I am.

    I am in no way shape or form trying to be disrespectful here, but many of us do not have the insider info that you do, so in most cases (mine for instance), I really have no idea what is going on behind the scenes like you do.

    Did you mean Kathryn Tappen? I think she is dating derek jeter or tom brady!

  16. Thanks guys, I’m just loosing the rest of my sense of humor and going totally nuts with this MSG/TWC byfuglien cooke bullcarsillo, amplified by their hartnelling cynicism and kopecky’s sucker punch to fans.

  17. Thanks guys, I truly appreciate a non-nasty, non-violent response :)

    Seriously. It’s just my idea of fun right now is a major trade that helps us contend for a championship. Can’t really think about much else.

    And there are some other teams getting into the mix here for major players, and I don’t think anyone is going to like the sound of what I just heard.

    >>>Did you mean Kathryn Tappen? I think she is dating derek jeter or tom brady!

    I wonder if hubby knows about this!?

  19. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    So on the rangers broadcast/watching their games etc…We had direct tv forever, but then the optimum triple play came out and was a big savings for us and they had centre ice, so we switched to them

    BIG mistake, apparently centre ice is not quite all the same and we had to watch the first two games on the computer, needless to say we are now back with direct tv and have not missed a single game since (dvr’d or live) plus we got HBO for free until the end of JAN (oddly convenient if you know what I mean)…Saving some money isn’t quite THAT important!

  20. JimboWoodside on

    You’re welcome, Rod – and why don’t you share what you heard with the rest of us? Maybe it will change the conversation here.

  21. Rod,
    …Meanwhile, things are happening elsewhere. Sheesh…
    Like what anointed? Please enlighten us unwashed.
    Oh, and sheesh you wife (if any) for self training, censor, OK?

  22. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    Rod,
    I would love to see a big move (like everyone else, depends on who goes the other way though)!

    Jimbo
    isn’t kathryn tappen that brunette on HNIC? She’s married?

  23. I hate to upset the RR apple cart here, but, I have Cablevision and I’m perfectly fine with that.

    CT,

    You do, in fact, receive a lunch point. You would have had more, but the fact that you told me you should have gotten lunch points rather than simply stating your lunch prevented you from maxx earnings.

    Wait, who’s this chick we’re talking about? Kevin Amber?

  24. JimboWoodside on

    Wick, I had DirecTV for many. many years here – since way back in the day when you had to *buy your own equipment, and install your own dish*, but I gave it up about a year ago, when I was having trouble getting all the NHL Center Ice games on my box. It was a technical issue for me.

  25. duckbill Plat-y-pus on

    Excuse the duckbill for a momentary thought, but if the mickey dolenz own the cablevision and you guys like the rangers..wouldn’t you get the Dolenz’ cablevision? or at least the optimus prime online?

    ilb, i see you are correcting syntax and grammar as i correct the spelling..this could be a team effort.

    carp
    I thought it was quite funny actually!!

    not quite kathryn tappen, but what is!

  27. ThisYearsModel on

    Tort’s can’t believe that nobody thought his conspiracy theory wisecrack wasn’t funny. Maybe Colie Campbell laughed at CARP’s tweet.

  28. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    jimbo
    oh is she the one that says “adismal”?

  29. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    wait, did she play hockey for the flyers at some point?

  30. JimboWoodside on

    Latona, did I ever get a lunch point or two for buying MickeyM a corned beef sammitch near the Garden? Not begging, you understand, but….. ;-D

  31. I didn’t even know you and Mickey congregated! Two of my favorite boneheads joining in on lunch festivities? And corned beef, near the exalted hall of hockey? Jimbo, you just moved into a tie with SALLY!

  32. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    jimbo
    don’t try, it’s rigged!!

  33. JimboWoodside on

    No, Wicky, but she graduated from Rutgers University, and she was a track & field athlete there, I think…

  34. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    Oh, that’s right, she worked for the islanders for a while!

  35. He is saying all the right things, and I really love the attitude Torts has. I hope this mindset is carried on throughout the entire team.

  36. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    and stayed at a holiday inn express!

  37. JimboWoodside on

    With SALLY!? No, I must decline such an honor! I’ll stay a point behind her, if it wouldn’t rankle the standings too much!

  38. Latona,

    Manny was the one that said I should get infinite lunch points. I just said what I ordered.

  39. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    oh, this is getting pathetic, first the beard contest, then showing her balls, now the lunch “non” competition!

  40. Wicky©"I think the NHL Network host was named Kathryn Tappen" on

    who the hell does kathryn tappen think she is?? Sally or something? SHEEESHH, the nerve!

  41. JimboWoodside on

    Latona, MickeyM and I got together last week while she was on an Amtrak layover between Albany and Washington DC – she only had an hour and change to spend, so we couldn’t make it down to Katz’s, but I did get her a corned beef on rye – I offered her pastrami, but I don’t think she could stand the excitement, so she took the corned beef instead! ;-)

  42. Jimbo,

    Are you truly declining lunch points? Do you think this is a game?

    wicky,

    You got it!!!!!

  43. It was good, Carp, but it needed a Brodeur fat joke in there really.

    Anyone think there might be some trades this side of the trade deadline?

  44. JimboWoodside on

    No, my friend Latona – I just didn’t want to supplant Sally, a longtime Bonehead, at her exalted position, (out of respect, you understand?) but if I must, I certainly will!

  45. I understand, Jimbo. It seems that you want to make a mockery of everything I stand for. It’s fine. I’ll put you at 406 and we’ll forget it ever happened.

  46. JimboWoodside on

    >>>And corned beef, near the exalted hall of hockey?

    Yes! Right across the street, in full view of the exalted cathedral of hockey!

  47. billybleedsblue on

    Carp, what did you tweet? You are “CarpRick” right? I’m at your twitter page and the most recent tweets are from July. Maybe I need to join-up to see the most recent..? Anyways, nice Torts audio! I like him more and more (especially that we’re winning)!

  48. JimboWoodside on

    >>>Rangers Report: Not happy about no Knicks on TV last night! Keepmsg.com

    Above from Waseka….

  49. billybleedsblue on

    hahaha, that Knick Tweet sums up the sentiment around here for sure……… NOT! haha

  50. JimboWoodside on

    Thank you, Latona! – sometime in the future we’ll have have a get-together, perhaps with a few of the other local ‘Heads. Do you come into the city fairly regularly?
