It’s Go Time! … Penguins at Rangers


[polldaddy poll=7540224 align="left"]
Game 15.penguins
Penguins at Rangers.

First of all, congrats to our second ticket contest winner, What the HECK, who was also our first ticket contest winner, both times correctly picking a 2-1 Rangers loss.

Ya boys finish a four-game homestand with the first meeting of the season against the NBC Crosbys, in a game, fittingly, on NBC. So be ready for that. Don’t know if you saw the special rivalry show they put together, with the Lemieux-Graves propaganda idiocy given new life. …

Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal, which means Cam Talbot likely gets the assignment tomorrow when the Rangers visit Rangers West, their new Metropolitan Division neighbors — Marian Gaborik, Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov and the Columbus Blue Jackets. Rick Nash (concussion), obviously, will not play in that game.

J.T. Miller goes back into the lineup, which means Brandon Mashinter is prucha’d along with Justin Falk. Dominic Moore (oblique) is getting closer to returning, but remains out.

Don’t forget to vote for the Three Rangers Stars in the poll on the left.

  1. Dorsett-Brassard-Pouliot, Pyatt-Boyle-Miller …

    so does this mean a demotion for Brassard or a promotion for Dorsett?

  2. LGR!!!!! In the name of progress, let’s earn at least a point from this game.

  3. Is it too early to say I miss the MSG broadcast? Seriously, I’m watching Roenick try to score on Hank while I’m missing Seinfeld? Ugh.

  4. As a season tix holder the games I will never go to unless playoffs is pens. Can’t fathom seeing them in person

  5. Used to hate the Isles and the Flyers the most. Then the Devils came on strong. Now there is no team I despise more than PITT.

  6. Stranger Nation on

    Those two lines should match up with the Cindy and Malkin lines with Boyle’s line with Malkin-stein and Brass on Cindy loo who.

    Richards can’t play D so he can’t match up and Zucc is on Step’s line so they can’t match up either.

    Another example of Bucky killing his team by his mere presence. Are those horses outside of the garden next to the carriage or mice in front of a pumpkin????

  7. ThisYearsModel on

    Go Time? Penguins and the Crybaby on NBCSN means DROOL TIME! Prepare to be sickened by Pierre drooling all over the Pens tonight. Time to turn down the sound and listen to Kenny and Dave instead.

  8. I hope Pierre calls kris Letang by his full first name tonight. I’m betting he will. Do it Pete, please, for me.

    Kristopher LeTang, can’t wait.

  9. One thing I do find refreshing is how AV will take questions about individual players who are struggling…and he doesn’t care about calling them out or telling it how it is…It’s a nice change…as opposed to Torts who would bark when asked about a player who is struggling…

    But…to be fair, reporters always tried to bait Torts into saying something negative about his players…which he never did…

  10. I don’t think that’s fair at all, NYR. We don’t try to bait coaches. And he never answered a question he didn’t want to answer, and very often volunteered stuff according to his own agenda. If he ripped anyone ever, it was always on his terms.

  11. Crosby said they should put an isolated camera on Cally. What, exactly, is he trying to say?

  12. NYR_FAN, I definitely remember Torts calling out his own players on more than one occasion, when they deserved it. If Torts was anything, he was brutally honest. He’d bark when asked about other team’s players because he only wanted to focus on his team.

    Carp, good stuff! NBC is milking that for all it’s worth..

  13. NBC pathetic with the stupid villain crap…
    Maybe they can create so much hate and emotion that we can witness another head shot tonight!!

  14. Lol Carp. “that was pretty much garbage”

    Describes the rest of the broadcast tonight as well.

  15. Craig MacTavish, Kevin Lowe and Mark Messier here at MSG again tonight. Boys are checking out Miller and Del Zotto.

    I’m thinking Yak is still in play.

  16. Naba helping Naba. Bigga than befouw. How about giving some of these ad millions to someone who could use it?

  17. Pierre’s “Get out there and have fun” schtick is getting a little grating, wot? Especially when it’s so obviously his tdotally self-promotional calling card.

  18. Sorry, Carp. I didn’t mean to offend you or your colleagues. I just meant you guys would be looking for quotes for players that are struggling from Torts and he would only give you one if he happened to feel like it, and if the player was struggling and clearly on his nerves, I feel like he would just bark and not answer the question, more often than not.

  19. It’s the job of a team reporter to bait the coach when he has the belligerent personality of Torts. Every time Torts acted hostile, it made for a better story. This is not to say I agree with it. The actions of both the team reporters and Torts are reprehensible.

  20. As someone who goes frequently before renovations two years ago was much better. New building is half dead but also the product is awful

  21. Edzo says that the refs made the right call on Moore’s not-interference, then celebrates Martin’s and chastises Callahan for “diving.” What a hack.

  22. The only thing I can say in Doc’s defense (and it pains me a little) is the Rangers numbers are not the easiest to read.

  23. Stranger Nation on

    Where is the weak side wing in the neutral zone?? This is going to be scary unless we start playing D in neutral zone

  24. It’s no wonder that a legendary true professional like Doc is in the Hall of Fame before his retirement.

  25. Pittsburgh controlled the first half that’s for sure. Do we even have a shot on goal yet?

  26. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    I’ll check it later tonight when I get home.

    From last thread, they better lead in PIMs and plenty of rapier like wit to go around.

    I wonder if we lose tonight the probability of a move increases?

  27. Zucc doesn’t score enough. Should have put that in himself. Fancy passes are for soft guys and Europeans.

  28. Stranger Nation on

    Zucc stood up a man in neutral zone after being dumped at blue line and made a great play to Step

  29. They should do away with the secondary assist. Almost as much a joke as the shootout.

  30. hopefully, the guys can block shots for two periods and take this one home……..


    some great forechecking by the Boyle line.

  31. McD adding to his hall of fame resume

    Nice to see AV took the shackles off our D-men…seems the result is that we hear Girardi’s name less

  32. i do realize we lucked out early. so im not gonna get too excited just yet, but that 2nd goal sure gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside

  33. Romeo: Around here we usually just add “(S)” to the end of all facetious and/or sarcastic posts.

    e.g.: Sidney Crosby is such a tough hockey player! He’s my favorite! (S)

  34. Right on Grabby but I’m sure I’ll probably spend as much time watching the clock as the action.

  35. love u too manny in a plutonic non avery type of ehh, u know. oh hey, u wanna check out my record collection? i got plenty of judy garland albums!!

  36. @Herman_NYRBlog: Brian Boyle started 67% of his shifts in d zone and 0% in o zone. Despite that, Pitt have no shots with him on ice while #NYR have 3.

    There you go Boyle haters.

  37. Yeah, Zuk doesn’t have any hockey sense and Boyle is useless ballast.
    …about first in general – it is better be lucky than good, that’s for sure.

  38. i’m more of a boyle lover/hater. theres no like middle ground for me. he doesnt score much so if he doesnt play well otherwise defensively or taking the body then i start hating. but then he’ll go and make a great play and completely redeem himself! until his next shift anyway ;)

  39. I don’t hate Boyle. Never said that.

    I said he’s not a core player, a player a team builds its franchise around.

    There’s no basis for an I told you so.

  40. lot of empty seats, grabby … but like Yankee Stadium, people spend a lot of time in the concourses and such now. And to be fair, it is a little louder here tonight than it was Monday.

  41. Rangers win the 1’st period.

    Now we have to take a Pittsburgh Power Play class during the break.

    Really. Why am I NOT surprised.

  42. yea i mean boyle has no goals in 15 games? ok so theres not much expectations there from the get go from me anyway. he is a big guy on a team full of smurfs. he grinds good, pk and all.

  43. No, don’t worry NBC. We’re more concerned with your useless infographics instead of following the live action. Bunch of mopes.

  44. halfway over heads. still forechecking and trying to play in pens zone. zuke looks fantastic tonight too along with our whole d corps

  45. Pretty sure, based on lots of games watched, Pitt scores in the last 3:00 of this period and it’s off a Ranger D’s knee or ass or something and it ruins our intermission.

  46. Pierre we dont care. he spends half the time with useless trivia. why doesn’t someone throttle him?

  47. Wow Boyler getting some Love tonight.

    I wonder if that will get him out of the WBM hole :)

  48. True story. I was told I could finish my shift if I wanted so I said ok, waited 5 minutes and walked out the back door.

  49. SCCCCOOOOOOORRRRRREEEEE! The passing so pretty!. It’s a Boyle’ing hot game tonight!!Add Your Comment

  50. The only thing that sucks is that Boyle was outstanding this game, goal or not, and that’ll get glossed over. “Oh, of course I thought he was great this game, I would have said that anyway.”

  51. In the f-wording offensive zone. This has to end. Seriously, it’s beyond mere vendetta and just fact.

  52. Brassard is centering the idiot and a psychopath. That approaches Anismov levels of sabotaging a good offensive player.

  53. how F’ING bush league is Poulet McNugget?

    This clown better not play anotehr shift for us. seriously.

    Sick of his BS

  54. This is actually the 3rd time I’ve called for the end of 67, Orr. Each time more justified in sum than the last. We shall see.

  55. I wonder if, out there somewhere, on a Penguins blog, everyone is complaining about “Playing down to your opponent”

  56. I would pay a minimum of $30 out of pocket right now for Kreider and Crosby to drop. Maybe more.

  57. Going back to Poulet … absolutely useless.

    And what is Crosby doing going after The Kreider. Someone drop that clown.

  58. Granted, this is very opportune timing, but tonight is why I’m not into Yakupov. This is fun because the team is working like hell. Very 2011-12 feel for a night.

  59. This is when someone on the Rangers needs to go after Crosby. What is that pansy saying to The Kreider?

    Someone drop him.

  60. The Kreider when he finally drops them will surprise the first victim. I hope it is Crosby!

  61. “I pray to Our Father in Heaven that Crosby tries to fight Krieder. I pray.”

    It’s “THE Kreider” but YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

  62. Zuccarello has really played a great game…”all over the place” as Stemmer is saying on the radio

  63. Twenty hellacious minutes to go but boy, oh boy we’re up by three after forty, pinch me.

  64. John Moore’s first fight was awesome. What a shock and a dominant win!

    I would pay a lot of money for audio of the Crosby and Kreidrr conversation.

  65. Grabby, he’s fun to watch. That pass on the the Stepan goal was unreal. He had a rough start to the season. But who else didn’t?

    Has showed he can play at this level and has the skill level to play with guys like Step and Kreider…I am loving that line right now…

  66. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on



    Hard , good passing and using the AV system to a tee!!!!




  67. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    YEAAHH baby , take it to them!!!

    LETS gogo gog oggo gog gogogogoo!!!


  68. >>BHawks 2 ‘Peg 0

    In the interest of fairness and equality, I hope you’re also post the Rangers’ score on a “BHawks” blog somewhere?

  69. Looks like the Kreid has been studying compass management and is going North/South and is not afraid of the crease. Good things a comin’.

  70. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    I would too grabby BUT really now…Hank is better then Flower boy an Crosby sucks so….NOWAY NOWAY NOWAY!!!!

  71. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Jbytes thats so true..if ya gonna advertise then over here…ya better Let them know what were doing!!! Dam unfair Olga!!


  72. Kreider cannot allow himself to be intimidated, ever. As he improves, he’ll be tested more and more.

  73. I want the Kreider to go Emery on Cindy! Is Francois St. Laurent the official tonight? Even more incentive! Although, Bettman himself would probably be running across the ice to separate the Kreider from Sausauge Lips.

  74. i kinda would too carp. but gosh. man, i love both hank and cally. for a garaunteed cup yes i would, but i’d still feel dirty and i’d have a good cry just like when brodeur won the cup those 3 times. ugh i dont even wanna think about it anymore.

  75. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Oh sorry Olga …we don’t Laugh over here cuz the pain hurts too much them we wanna freaaaakk out. years of this and that…us Rangers fan don’t Firetruck around after some of the Crap weve been apart of.

  76. Random comment from someone who rarely comments. Brian Boyle is a player every team in the NHL would like to have – excellent on faceoffs, good size, blocks shots, kills penalties, defensively responsible, make decent plays if put with top 6 guys, low cap hit. I feel like Ranger fans never recognize the non-scorers -paging Manny Malhotra & Mikael Samuelsson…

  77. Good shocking fights McPhee cutting up a Tocchet in his prime…in the playoffs no less. James Patrick killing Dave Poulin who would of thunk it?

  78. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    Put him in the minors..great move Miami Pimp!!


  79. Patrick-Poulin, rounds 1, 2 and 3 …

    The McPhee-Tocchet thing turned out that McPhee cut him with his stick before the fight.

    Good evening, Hambone!

  80. I don’t know if Kreider can or would fight … but somebody will learn that the guy is built like an absolute bear. For his height, might be the biggest hockey player I’ve seen. Like Lindros.

  81. I like Eddie O, I wish he would point out Richards staying out for the entire Rangers PP, like he did with the Pens.

  82. Pens look uninterested in competing anymore, and a PP goal would be the nail in the coffin. Let’s go!

  83. iDoodie Machetto on

    Busy busy. And I dropped my phone in water last night to boot. Mrs. Machetto was kind enough to lend me hers for the third period

  84. iDoodie Machetto on

    Miami, it’s already there. When you are a bush league, Cookie Monster, dogs breakfast person like me, you have to be prepared for this kinda stuff.

  85. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    We have rebuilt him , He is the worlds first bionic Hockey player , he is …the Kreider!!!

  86. iDoodie Machetto on

    Working a lot. And my son has some issues that are stressful. He’s probably fine (ilb seems to think so, at least), but it’s still stressful, you know?

  87. Carp never heard Georgie cut him before the fight. I’ll take your word. Met him a couple time down here. Pictures signed and all, he is tiny, but he out slugged and shockingly out muscled RT as well.

  88. Has Zucc turned the corner? I think we all feel Kreider has, but is Zucc now looking like the player the Rangers thought they were signing?

  89. iDoodie Machetto on

    Romeo, MZA looks much better than the player they thought they were signing. This has easily been the best stretch of his career.

  90. iDoodie Machetto on

    Hey, speaking of hockey families, I heard that Staal has a hockey playing brother. Isn’t that crazy?!

  91. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on



  92. Shoulda had the ticket contest tonight, because I surely had our boys spanking the Pens 5-1…wink, wink!

  93. Great job by Our boys clogging up the neutral zone and slowing down a much more talented team.

  94. iDoodie Machetto on

    Callahan is so much better when Richsrds isn’t involved.

    For Richards’ hot start, he’s been pretty invisible lately.

  95. My two favorite (best) knock outs were Orr on Fridge and Johnson on DeePee ur pants. Real knock outs and both deserving

  96. As much as I dislike those tools Steigerwalt and Errey, it might be funny to hear their calls tonight.

  97. Hank still making saves like it’s a 1 goal game. He’s the 1st star, no question about it. He doesn’t come out on top of his game right from the get go, this could be a very different game right now.

  98. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Doodie – what’s up with your son? Nothing serious I hope. I have major issues with my 7 yr. old daughter, so I know how you feel!!

  99. iDoodie Machetto on

    We’ve got some concerning diagnoses, but like I said, ilb seems to think he’s fine.

    Speaking of ilb, I got to meet Mrs. ilb and ilbette. Mrs. ilb is such a delight and ilbette is the cutest little girl around.

  100. Great non call on Richards head getting slammed into the boards. Seriosuly. He’s mad but that’s not a penalty.

  101. iDoodie Machetto on

    E3, I like empty net goals. Shows that the coach trusts you to protect a lead. Brett Hull bragged he didn’t have a single ENG. yeah, because no coach would ever be crazy enough to expect you to protect a lead.

  102. my daughter is also 7 eddie. shes the apple of my eye. never felt so much love for anyone in my life but her. i only get to see her twice a month but im working on changing that.

  103. iDoodie Machetto on

    I don’t understand why the girl from mallrats is speaking with such a thick Scottish accent.

  104. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Grabby – sorry to hear. I know you love that lil angel. They are precious. My little girl has autism and it’s incredibly stressful. Tho we’ve made tremendous progress….

  105. Looked like they were trying to get Miller one. That’s either cool or very-not-cool-please-don’t-trade-him.

  106. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Doodie – stay on top of your son and go with your gut. If you feel something isn’t right, keep at it. You and your wife know your son best.

  107. Solid game. With the good effort against the Ducklings, and the 3 game win streak right before, and now tonight’s shellacking, dare I say we can keep this going??

  108. Wow…anyone who had guessed the final score of this game would have been suspected of smoking strange weed…it all clicked, from Lundquist to Boyle. Hooray! I’m thinking of straying from my cave to watch hockey.

  109. Do we still need to bring up negatives? Don’t we do that enough during off days? And when they’re losing? And when there’s no score?

  110. Not too often I am satisfied with my week by Wednesday night!!! I’m often a Boyle Basher, but the man was a beast tonight ..along with the Kreider.

  111. Not a question of bringing up negatives – rather a question of ongoing evaluation (as with coaches) to see that we are there at the end, competing for a Cup.

  112. Best complete game I’ve seen in quite some time solid play by four lines . Kreider something else. Really learning AV’s system very well

  113. Richards, though a nice, nice man, is a net-net negative factor to whomever is on the ice with him.

  114. They are never going to play a perfect game. One goal of hockey is to capitalize on the other teams mistakes and minimize your own mistakes. Mistakes will always exist because of ice conditions, luck and skill.

  115. Well said, Gravy. Boyler made that awesome play behind the net on another goal before scoring his own. And man, his wrister is better than his backhand.

  116. Doodie, I know you weren’t into Miller at the draft and you were big into someone. Thought McNeill. No?

  117. Boyle would have been a star of the game without the goal.

    His PK play along with his D-Zone face off wins. Man he’s so valuable.

  118. We’re flying out. We might be in for a tough one tomorrow night. This is a game where the coach has to make some good decisions. Sitting Richie for a fresh, speedy horse might be one of them.

  119. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    While their value is at an all time high….

    Boyle MDZ and Pyatt for Sharp, Seabrook, Bickel and Shaw

  120. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Rangers have 4 lines that look ok….I’d still get rid of Pyatt….rather masher than pie see

  121. eddie- something is up. it seems edmonton lookin for a goalie. so messier spiked sathers scotch with his own bottled tears from the 94 cup game, and sather is now UIMT(under influence of messiers tears). its like drinking the tears from a unicorn. so basically, were going to be picked apart of all our talent now.

  122. Did Malkin play? Great job shutting him down boys. Credit the D and some good hard back checking.

  123. ZzZz NYR ZzZz©" Don't Stepan the logo!!!"...says Greg L. on

    We still have Nash …Nash could squeeeze into this lineup couldn’t he?

  124. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Kooz – realize that for every bud light slats drinks, he stabs, aims, and fires (well, drips drips) for hours at a time…

  125. I’m afraid we’re obligated to eventually get a little tougher to protect the talented youngbloods.

  126. I like the bud light commercials

    I hate watching the games with Ramsey.

    But we win when he comes over

    I love you Ramsey.

  127. Liked the Gabby trade, disliked the Nash… To much money. John Scott threshold of greatness, quick, tough,young,smart. Put a little upper body muscle on him and look out.

  128. I’m a bit concerned when offensive players cross check our defensive players in front of the net instead of the other way around.

  129. coos, that’s when MZA skates over and says “none of your business, sausage lips” and gives him a prod with the butt-end of his stick as MDZ wraps his arm around MZA’s shoulder.

  130. Stranger Nation on

    Kreider must be doing something right – he had the entire Pissburg roster running him.

    He should have dropped Cindy when he had the chance.

    Never back down. Let them know you are THE KREIDER!!!

  131. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Kreider Step Zucchini – their top line. Never imagined I’d ever type those words…

  132. E3 – a man for all seasons. Now, in Calif, he says, ‘Finish that off, I’ll uncork another Bourgogne Rouge.”

  133. Stranger Nation on

    first 15 minutes – scared for our lives

    next 45 minutes – Domination

    man – their D sucks;
    Burtozzo -3 (from Thunder Bay Pierre)
    and the 19 yr old – what’s a Maatta, you, Hey, it’s a nice day, hey!

  134. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pierre doesn’t bug me so much anymore…..he’s dedicated….prolly pulls chain reading Hockey Guides

  135. Dreger just said on NHL Network two important things.

    1) Yakupov will NOT be traded this season
    2) Nash has been skating every day, even though there is no imminent return

    Double hooray!

  136. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Latona – that is good news….i wouldn’t rush Nash back Period. Take the year off if necessary…

  137. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    It’s starting to get chilly my way… Wood stove is blazing and fireplace is cooking….

  138. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Kooz – as the great Tom cruise character in top gun said…”I’m not leaving my wingman until I hit 800″

    Tom cruise by the way – is very pretty.

  139. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    I wish they were Santa Ana winds….these are article winds coming off the pacific by way of Alaska…

  140. AV to Lurch – ‘Next time they rip your helmet off your head, at least look a little upset, eh?’

  141. Stranger Nation on

    Hank did what he had to do and the Pens D came to form

    Man this division stinks

    BJs reeling as well. lost 7 of last 10

  142. We dominate the overconfident. Once we start getting banged around, we’ll need either Haley or the Undertaker.

  143. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    SNation – the east might as well concede the cup….5 best teams are all out west…

  144. In the hope that the glorious ducky lurks in this sanctuary of banj, let us remember those lines in which the great Chaucer memorialized the platypus.

    ““he was to a Rangers fan not despitous”..

  145. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    You put Mash Haley and Asham on a 4th line – give them decent ice time – and the grit problem is solved.

  146. What I also love about that 4th line is the discipline they show when necessary, the forecheck, and the mayhem when needed.

  147. People don’t appreciate the smaller things Dorsett brings. Don’t know why. They think they had Bob Probert and are disappointed.

  148. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Haley belongs with the big club…

    I guess it’s agreed….mash, Azz, and the comet for 4 th line duty

  149. Stranger Nation on

    Dorsett is an Avery type – willing to tussle but not a bomb thrower.

    Like his puck possession down low. Makes smart plays in Ozone

  150. Damn, Richie sees someone within six feet of him with a mean look on his face, and he throws the frisbee to the roof and ducks.

  151. Stranger Nation on

    Richie will be broken by mid year. Hopefully not too bad but you can already see him getting smacked a little.

  152. I bet Richie’s got “Southern Cross” playing on repeat in his head.. might explain his aimless drifting across the ice surface..

  153. Stranger Nation on

    Wilbur barely bends his knees while skating in D zone and worst of all does the prima donna bench glide when ending shift. Hate that BS

  154. Considering they can’t hit anyone on the ice, of course. MZA tries, but often bounces off as if the opponent were a board obstacle on a pinball table.

  155. Stranger Nation on

    Pullout is like the lost Marx brother. it would be much funnier watching him play if he wasnt with us. Makes Woofski seem smart by comparison.

  156. Stranger Nation on

    MZA took a huge hit to make a play on pass to Step earlier in play. He has been getting ragdolled all season and I would sit him out against Bruins and Sens for his own safety.

  157. I am sooo tired of this Richie Incognito BS. Every foghorn sports “personality” milks it like a cow.

  158. If, I say, if only Incognito said and done those terrible, I say, terrible things incognito. Hiding, that is.

  159. Stranger Nation on

    Crazy story made only slightly humurous by his name. How did that surname get passed down.

  160. Stranger Nation on

    E3 – slot Nasher on that line and sit the wee man and that is a FORCE to be reckoned with

  161. When you look at a lot of these first round picks, you realize how thin the talent base is with all these teams we have now.

  162. They EVACED me out of the jungle and within three hours I was enjoying a vodka martini at the Plaza Hotel. Shaken, not stirred.

  163. They EVACED me out of the jungle and within three hours I was enjoying a Ketel One martini at the Plaza Hotel. Shaken, not stirred.

  164. Rich: “Hank and I are meeting at the Russian Tea Room, care to join us?”

    DelZ: “Sure, but what’s the rush and where’s the tea room?”

  165. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    I’d rather type set in the 14th century. Maybe in Avignon after the papacy moved from Rome.

  166. Zucc: ‘Can you lend me $500 for a haircut?’

    MDZ: $500 bucks?”

    Zucc: ‘Most of it’s for estimates.’

  167. Zucc: “Why am I getting jacked up all the time?”

    DelZ: “You’re starting to look like Ash.”
