Happy weekend … wish I had more to add


As you’ve noticed, the lack of work by me (vacation), lack of news around the Rangers, and lack of progress in the CBA (cough, cough) negotiations have resulted in a lack of new posts.

So here’s one, the easy way. Nothing to say, nothing to add, nothing to do … well, something to do, but nothing that would interest anybody here.

For example, last night the air conditioner went dead. Which is always nice in August.

Hence, here is your weekend post, for your always intelligent, very serious, never frivolous, conversation. Have at it.

  1. Hurricane watches are terrible! They are flooding the market and they can Invicta terrible toll as they Movado through. They can be very heavy on the wrist, but technicians are always trying to Lightening them. Minute by minute, they Band together and Seiko new ways to knock down barriers to progress. Timex will tell.

  2. Off to the golf course in search of birdies and eagles. Hoping to meet an albatross. See ya. Discuss.

  3. BrandonPrust8 Very informative @NHLPA meeting today. Good to see so many guys here & involved. #theplayers are united & working to get a fair deal done.

    i guess this means that just like prust they are overvaluing themselves and asking for about $500K-$1 million more than they deserve. /sarcasm.

  4. So the MLB Network is talking about this blockbuster deal between the Dodgers and the Red Sox and they say, about the Dodgers, “There is no NFL in LA. The only teams they have to compete with are USC Football and the Lakers.” Next guy says, “Yes there is literally no other team in LA.”

    And they *just* won Lord Stanley’s Cup!

    can you understand me?…Do you understand me?

    Cant judge a mutha by the skin of her fatha, cant judge a book book by the skin of the cover…read me, read me baby….

  7. Oh and now they are going with, “Dwight Howard to the Lakers and now this deal? The stars are aligning in LA for them to start getting some championships there.”


  8. Haven’t stopped by in a bit. Summer been busy. Want to say hello. Wish Happy rest of summer.

    carp, good luck with air conditioner ours went a couple summer’s ago. pain to replace

    LW3H- concerning MLB, my cousin has been brought up to AAA with Chi Cubs one step from omg, I first said NHL, I meant majors

    should be talking development camp and pre-season at this time.(:

  9. Manny i was just about to post that here too… I just heard it.. I guess they have it on tape now…. what a bunch of idiots.

  10. It’s just too bad. I mean, it’s insane that we are headed for a lockout and people don’t know who won the Stanley Cup or even that teams exist.

  11. Don’t you get good buys on ACs this time of year? Def pays to have someone install it…the back ain’t what it used to be anymore!If you need help–give us a holler–if you need a donation…see Ed Snider!If you agree to light up the outside of your house in black and orange…I think he’d be in for a few fishnagels…speaking of fishnagels..any possibility of JD returning to MSG?

  12. Bob Dylan just called from January of next year, asking: “Where Have all the Flowers Gone?

  13. Red Sox loaded themselves up with malcontents and crybabies and are now paying the price. Even after purging half the team, last night Alfredo Aceves (remember him from the Yanks?) threw a tantrum after not being brought in to close the game and was suspended. His last outing Thursday, he blew the save giving up five runs on six hits with 37 pitches for his seventh blown save. Looks like they haven’t tossed enough loudmouthed crybabies yet.

    Just a little something off the beaten path, that you might find of interest. “If a Lion stands at the head of an army of Lions, victory is assured.
    “If a Lion stands at the head of an army of asses, the chances are 50-50
    But if an ass stands at the head of an army of Lions…you call it quits.

    “More direful hap betide that hated wretch
    That makes us wretched by the death of thee
    Than I can wish to wolves, to spiders, toads,
    Or any creeping venomed thing that lives.”

  18. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©"Don't stepan the logo,Nash!!!"...says Greg L. on

    LETS GO RANGERS!!! TOP 10 baby!!

    Here we go …


    #1 Hank is the best .Period .Elite goalie.

    #2 NASH has it all. Speed ,size and strenth. Soft hands and heart.

    #3 Callahan’s heart is almost as big as Hank’s.

    #4 Richards . Richie Rich is very gifted. This will be his year.

    #5 Gaborik. Skilled and very fast makes him our game breaker.

    #6 Staal. Every GM’s dream trade to shore up the Defence.

    #7 MCDONAGH . Quality player will move up on this list.

    #8 Girardi . Logging alot of minutes. Quality defensman.

    # 9 Stepan is growing up so watch for him to step it up!!

    # 10 Delzotto is no disaster. He is our modern day Leetch,Zubov and Paul Coffee all in to one.

  19. Only difference, is I did mine (admittedly short) from memory. I did get you to do a little Willie the Shake research, though, which never hurts and should prove beneficial.

  20. Walter,
    I know you are. Your irreproachable and exquisite writing style speaks for itself.

  21. Neil Young just called to say that you are like a hurricane and I’m gettin’ blown away.

  22. Not to say you’re boring, 3C, but after reading your posts for months, my foot continuously goes to sleep and I hope you don’t mind if I join it again.

  23. How fluttering…you’ve been reading my posts for months…how did you manage to stay up reading my posts for month if I’m boring? You make no sense…as always.

  24. Good morning, boneheads!

    The blog has been quiet, eh?

    So, it sounds like this week they are going to attempt to close the gap between NHL and NHLPA. They are meeting in small groups, the most important being Donald Fehr and his brother Steve, and Bettman with Daly. Dreger also reports that the league may present another offer.

  25. RIP to Neil Armstrong for sure BUT…. he did cheat on his wife of 40+ years and later married his mistress… doesnt make Lance Armstrong’s personal life with Crow any less ok but Neil Armstrong isnt exactly perfect himself.

  26. Does Issac portend the lock-out for sure? It certainly looks as if it is following the path of Katrina –

  27. “First of all to understand what happened to killer, you gotta understand who killer the dog was. Now killer was born to a three-legged bitch of a mother. He was always ashamed of this, man. And then right after that he’s adopted by this man, Tito Liebowitz he’s a small time gun runner and a rotweiler fight promoter. So he puts killer into training. They see killer’s good. He is damn good. But then he had the fight of his life. They pit him against his brother nibbles. And killer said “no man that’s my brother, I can’t fight nibbles” but they made him fight anyway, and killer, he killed nibbles. Killer said “that’s it!” he called off all his fights, and he started doing crack, and he freaked out. Then in a rage, he collapsed, and his heart no longer beat. wow.”

  28. 4generations 4 cups on


    “They was using numchucks, bow’n’ows, they be doing indian burns…and killer paid the price. He got the wrath. The wrath of the numchucks”

  29. You guys gotta get me out of here! There’s this guy Nasty Nate who wants my cocktail fruit, and everyone here likes fresh fish! Then The Squirrel Master came out of left field and told me I’m his beetch!

    ” We’ll fight, not out of spite. For someone must stand up for what’s right ‘Cause

  31. “Get some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s’mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap’n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on ’em, with water, whole lotta water, and… Funyons.”

  33. Rupp switching numbers from 71 to 17. Can we expect a 180 degree turnaround in his level of play as well!?

  34. So people get their money and that extra money doesn’t reflect in the cap. Doesn’t that kind of make the cap a “phantom” cap? At least for these “grandfathered” in cap hits?

  35. So we’re supposed to believe that just being on the moon suddenly makes a 38-year-old man able to jump huge distances? Not buying it.

  36. also, did you see how skinny he was in his NASA photos, then all of a sudden how bulked up he was when he was on the moon?

  37. Yea. He hit that 9 Iron like 178 Yards. They didn’t even have graphite shafts or cavity weights back then!

  38. Just spent $900 on text books for the new semester!!! ROBBERY!

    The fargin corksuckers publishers need 24% price roll back! And a hard cap! Where is Gary Bettman when you need one!

  39. Got this in an email today:

    I was in Florida….and I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read ‘I miss The Bronx.’

    So I broke the window, stole the radio and left a note that read, “I hope this helps.”

  40. Maybe that person should have put 27 world series rings on the car’s dash. That might have helped as well!

  41. Got this one too. Apologies for the caps, but thats how it came over:

  47. Dedicated to incomparable *Carp*:
    How can you drop a raw egg onto concrete floor without cracking it?
    -Any way you want, because a concrete floor is very hard to crack.

  48. Dedicated to disappeared *ORR*:
    How do you know if you really like a girl?
    Spend evening with her, get back home, take off your trunks and throw it to the selling and if it sticks – you really do.

  49. To whoever wants to start a family:

    2.You will understand what happiness is all about only when you get married. But, it will be too late…

  50. You people are wackadoodles. Makes me feel good that im not alone.

    While most of the people that have been in my life for years have been sick of the boston stuff for a long time, i think some of my boneheads are beginning to get sick of it too :)

  51. OK, guys, I’m back from anemic France, already kissed this blessed New York’s asphalt and what did I found? Beloved Blog in self indulging intellectual coma? Morose climate of despair, pessimism, hopeless attitude, with no Promised Land on a horizon, weak anticipation of worse time coming, list of negativity and apathy goes on and on…C’mon! We have to keep this blog afloat till better days and everyone has to contribute, showing that we are bunch of enthusiastic fans, well worth the very team we love and blogfather we like so much.

  52. I know, I know…Optimism – is just a lack of information and my sincerity is just lack of self-control…and all of that, but really with so many wonderful characters here it’s a shame…
    We could open public university.

  53. The Pope and Raquel Welch are in a lifeboat. Yada yada and she says, “Those aren’t buoys.”

  54. Tiki,
    does it mean that I will not making a mistake to keep my proverbial mouth shut?!

  55. The great French comedian Maurice Chevalier used to tell an example of his comic style…thusly….

    Three persons stranded on a desert Isle…..three women one man

    If they were Italian, one woman would kill one of the other women
    If Spanish,One woman would kill both other women,
    If they were English nothing would happen for they hadn’t been introduced,
    but if they were French…there’d be no problem.

  56. I suppose that if they’d been Russian, nothing would happen for they couldn;t tell the difference?

    OK OK, I apologize, but I couldn;t resist that.

  57. Called the Mets box office to get ten tickets to the game. Asked the man, “What time does the game start?” He said, “What time can you get here?”

  59. Some crazy fan (named Bo Beck in case anyone wants to go there and bother him lol) on the comments at THN on their predictions “article”:

    Hearing rumors here in NY that a 3 team deal is being talked about Av’s get Gaborik and Hagelin, Rangers get Bobby Ryan and O’Brien. While ANA would receive Paul Stastny and prospects.

  60. You forget the energy he brought to every single game he played in. Whether you hated or loved Avery he always brought excitement to the game. R.I.P. Avery’s NHL career.

  61. With all his yapping and saying outrageous things, he didn’t remember a single word of what he said right after the game.

  62. Yes he (Avery) was the best…the best at what he did…that’s why he was and still is so hated by the players and the blind fans. ;)

  63. Similarity – They’re both undersized egoists who are on a perpetual power play and like to dress up in women’s clothes and do a sneery, campy bogart routine.

  64. Avery railed at two cops who responded on a call to his house in California, calling them “fat little piggies” when they simply told him to turn the volume down on his party. He challenged them to a fight, but they demurred, elected to “escort him to the prone position,” then proceeded to cuff and arrest him, no doubt putting a damper on the evening’s festivities. Ho ho.

  65. 3C, again at a loss for wit, needlessly rolls out his nuclear weapons for another dismal, lonely parade.

  66. Don’t know if you can take a picture, but you’re real good at developing a negative.

  67. CCCP don’t try to integrate into our society too hard, it is not the facile vernacular, but rather assessing the stuff you’re served up in your college and fight with it, pal.

  68. A kid from Odessa (Russia, not Ukraine) talking like a Hell’s Kitchen brat of old? There’s an affinity, brother, don’t hold it against me, please.
