About Author


  1. The whole state is shut down today. Couple of inces of snow and a 60Mph wind. We never canceled school the night before a windy day in winter.

  2. Weak…. In the Adirondacks we call that April.

    Stay safe Sioux.

    Let’s get these two points tonight!

    LGR !!!

  3. Wow, I see the Ducks hung a nine spot on Vancouver last night. I bet Tort’s practice isn’t optional today.

  4. Tonight will be a disaster of epic proportions. Red Wings, 14-0.

    Will make the Vancouver loss last night look like a picnic in comparison.

  5. I sliced my *hand* this morning on an uncooperative cinnamon raisin bagel and drew a little *blood*. Metal factor *7*.

  6. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    That *Metal* factor would be a lot higher if you weren’t eating a *Cinnamon Raisin* baby like a female toddler. Hopefully you weren’t putting *Strawberry* Cream Cheese on top of it. Drawing blood is *cool* but if it didn’t drip anywhere I am going to overrule your *7* and give you a *Metal Factor* of *5*

  7. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I’m currently *sitting* at my desk, I got to work *before*( 9AM, I’m eating Kashi Go Lean Crunch with extra protein and staring at a computer screen without *Music* on. This *Metal Factor* is a *2*. The only reason it’s a *2* and not a *0* is that I could assume the enriched protein of my high in fiber *Cereal* possibly came from Goat’s *Blood* which may have been used in *Satanic* sacrifice. The other point is because I will *soon* be listening to *Brutal* metal.

  8. Kashi, huh? You know what I *say* to that? Earthy, cruncy, granola *hippie* type stuff. Might be time for an *overthrow*.

  9. Datsyuk, Ericsson, Franzen, Weiss, Howard are out with injuries. Alfredsson is questionable. Tatar will not play because of death of his father in Slovakia. All according to LB.

  10. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I totally agree. But it has a lot of protein and today is LEG day at the gym and I have to bust out a ton of Squats and lunges so I can release endorphines that get my upper body jacked. Following the workout I will drink a Chocolate protein Shake (made with WHEY protein). Also no *onion factor*

  11. Really, Tatar is out? He scored a game winning goal for them last week shortly after he received the news. Looked like a real nice moment for him, all things considered.

  12. KEXP streaming, at my dining room table because that’s my office, about to go for a *homemade english muffin*.

    Booby: *Serrated* knife? Those are the worst. I took a little piece of my thumb off when my wife was 2 days past due. I was very metal and bit the hanging *skin* off immediately. Then I laid down on the kitchen floor to avoid *passing out*.

  13. The first night we moved into our *last* home, I *cut* the tip of my pinky finger with a *chef’s* knife. I didn’t have any *band aids* or *first aid* products at all. It wouldn’t stop *bleeding*, so I wrapped it in *paper* towels and *masking* tape until the next day. Probably needed *stitches*.

  14. Yup, serrated.

    Also, I’m very *intrigued* by a homemade English muffin. Perhaps it’s time to start sharing *recipes* on the blog.

  15. Ever since Manny made fun of me, I’m on a *quest* to bring the metal factor down.

    Does anybody do *needlepoint*?

  16. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Gravy: Your injury* has a *Metal Factor* of *7*

    Had you used *Black Duck Tape* it would be exponentially higher.

  17. The only *correlation* between the two, that I can think of, would be that a high *metal factor* could make you *immune* to to the WBM. For instance, *Prust* would never be on the WBM.

  18. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Guy who eats kashi that also talks about metal factors while making every other word bold text for attention in his posts that spends most of his paid working day on his computer not doing work related things and having a secret love affair for Stepan=hipster doofus!

  19. Red Wings with 7 players injured. Scares me if they decide to play the backup Goal Tender as well.

    So we will see some of the Red Wings JV tonight.

    Rangers Rule tonight! Right???

  20. Stranger Nation on

    Super man – just means some 18 yr old rook will score his first goal and some 4th line AHL lifer scrub will light the lamp as well. Back up goalie as well? We are toast!

    Seriously, this is a 4pt game when you think abooot Wild Card standings…

  21. What happened to Nucks last night? Looks like our beloved coach lost his new team before even make acquaintance with his best players’ relatives in a locker room.

  22. Every recipe should come with a player comp and a recommended album to listed to while cooking.

  23. Manny, I don’t know if you looked but yesterday pm, Doodie posted a snippet of stralmans music preferences. Then several witty remarks were made regarding your love of same player. Good stuff.

  24. Recipe: English Muffins

    Player Comp: Steve Thomas

    Album Rec: Anything british besides Coldplay. Or Oasis.

  25. Rob in Beantown on

    Who is the most *metal* Ranger? Perhaps Stalman, but his preference for Nu Metal should disqualify him. Maybe it is Lundqvist? Being Swedish is a *Metal Factor* of at least *6*. But his professed love of pop punk music and meticulous grooming have a *Metal Factor* of no more than *2*. It has to be *Zuccarello*, right? Is there somebody else?

  26. Rob in Beantown on

    Lundqvist is the first goalie off the ice. I guess Cambot will play Saturday afternoon in Ottawa?

  27. Yeah, Rob its gotta be Zucc. Being from *Norway* is an automatic win. Plus he’s pretty much the toughest *sob* on the team.

  28. Dead Wings really depleted. Now 3 months in the season and the announcers still can’t correctly say a French Canadian name. For Pouliot (a common name in Quebec)…Think Margot. Or Think “Waiting for Godot” Pooyo. We can say Margot right? We do not say mar-gat. Or mar-goht. Unprofessional IMO

  29. Rob in Beantown on

    Dubeliveau, maybe Poolio expressed a preference for the English pronunciation? Maybe he doesn’t like that his name rhymes with Coolio?

  30. I know it’s a big positive for the Rangers, but I’m actually pretty bummed that Datsyuk isn’t playing tonight. Without a doubt my favorite player to watch in the entire league. The man is an *artist*.

  31. Rob in Beantown on

    I feel the same way, Booby. I’m bummed we don’t get to watch him play tonight. But it’s undeniably to the Rangers benefit that he is out.

  32. Dubeliveau, you can always just listen to Pierre McGuire on a never ending loop. He gets them right all the time. Maybe there is an app for that?

    LOL at *Coolio*.

  33. Brassard’s quote in that story is funny. Zucc apparently spends time on the ice hiding in corners. Difficult to find.

  34. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Real *all star* crowd on the blog today. Where is *CT Blueshirt* to round it out?

  35. Rob and Bobby…maybe you are correct. Not only does Pierre get it right, but so does Milbury! But there is no English way to say that name…unless, if you remember #16 Lucien Deblois, who for 3 months they called De Bloys. Or Patrik Roy said as Roy Rodgers. POOYO

  36. SN – vib’n

    Always worried when it looks like we should beat on team on paper. These are always the ones the Rangers at times let them get away. But Detroit has been fighting injuries all year long, if you’ve watched any of the 24/7 this year.

    At least the original 6 matchups are fun to watch.

    Always a good team.

  37. So my in-laws tried to pawn off some old furniture on us the other day. A large dresser and two nightstands. Since it wasn’t a *Farbman*, I’ll told them to go *scratch*.

  38. So my good news for the day….. my wife comes across a deal on the computer. Who know you could fly to NY for $300 round trip?

    She wants to send Me & my son to a Ranger game in March.

    God broke the mold when he made this one :)

  39. Flights are crazy right now. We’re going JFK to Charleston for less than $300 combined in March.

  40. I can’t fly to Minneapolis for $300, but I can fly to New York and back for $300 with a stop in Minneapolis. Explain that on to me?

  41. Mister D, I was in Savannah, GA last year and a bunch of locals said that we should have went to Charleston instead. People raved about it.

  42. Stranger Nation on

    Fans who bought tix to see their complete squad got short end on this game.
    Irony is Detroit comes to Least from the mighty Best and may not make POs. Figure they have a lot of players going to So-she in Feb as well.

  43. Carp you need some Fighting Sioux swag….. for when you interview Kristo in the future right?

  44. Went to leafs/Sabres last nite. Awful game ended with 4 out of 5 shoot out scorers connecting, it was actually boring. Ryan Miller lets in all 3. Oh well so much for him getting hot. Don’t trust him for the USA play Quick, should of picked Bishop. Been saying that forever

  45. _Mister D, I was in Savannah, GA last year and a bunch of locals said that we should have went to Charleston instead. People raved about it._

    Beyond “well, its in the south”, I’ve never heard a bad word about the town. I plan on eating and drinking and wearing red shorts for 3 straight days.

  46. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    *Hedberg*: I agree they should have taken *Bishop* but I think they went on the _Well if we have to worry about our 3rd string Goaltender we are screwed_ theory. The *Problem* with this is that they took Howard as their 3rd string because he’s a *veteran* and *deserves* it or whatever. They have left themselves with a lately unreliable goalie in Miller, a backup with a *back* problem and a 3rd string Goaltender who is just not very good as well as being *old*.

  47. MSG 2 tonight A-Byfuglien-gain!! It might be a radio night for me. I HATE MSG2 – no HD. A big middle finger to the MSG network.
    -Angry Headzo

  48. Ic – i tried the other night for a long time & no dice (xfinity comcast). Did I miss it somewhere?

  49. so I’m not a superstitious guy, except for when it comes to sports (really even then only Rangers hockey) but If the rangers go on a streak i’ll keep watching from the same spot in my living room or what not. Once they start losing I change spots or how I watch/listen to the game.

    On the recent streak they were on I was listening to the game streaming on the radio from the NYR homepage or For whatever reason, the NYR home page only had the tampa bay feed the other night(by the way their announcer is awful if you ask me)

    Now I’m stuck with this internal debate:

    Was it the announcers and should I still radio?
    Do I go back to TV watching?

    oh the calamity

  50. When I was a kid, we walked uphill 10 miles to school and uphill 10 miles back through BLIZZARDS, 10 below, and when we finally go home, our parents put us all in one Carl Farbman drawer and pelted us with stale Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

  51. Looking at the Edmonton goalie trade situation, they dumped Dubnyk and acquired Srivins. My stat for goalies involves dividing save percentage by GAA. Dubnyk = .894/3.36 = 266.
    Scrivins = .931 /1.97 = 473. Big win for the Oil Boys, obviously.

    Now, if you are inclined, take a look at Hank and Cam on the same basis. Interesting stuff, to say the least.

  52. MR.D –

    AV would bench Taveras “For not being good enough, and for making two mistakes per decade.” Oh, wait, that would be Torts, not AV. Sorry, got carried away.

  53. Coos mine was 7.5 miles. I rode my bike one day it took 20 minutes with the wind to my back.

    It took the bus 1 1/2 hours for the same joy ride, first on last off.

  54. In Gross’ blog, Nash talks about how he wasn’t *going* to the net after coming back from the *concussion*. I can’t post the *link* because *Twitter* is *blocked* here.

  55. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    *Prospect Park* (which oddly has a pretty high *Metal Factor* as the Lead Singer of *Type O Negative* used to work there and there is a *Tree* and a *Bench* in his memory there) has a nice *bike Loop* but the last .1 of a mile is brutal and uphill and I *hate* it.

  56. Sather Must Go! on

    Charleston is cool.. There is a HOCKEY bar on King Street (I think there is a Sabres connection)..

    it across the Street from a place called the Cocktail Club (great for..cocktails, duh) and near a very good thai restaurant called “Basil”

    note: take advantage of the free shuttle around town

  58. Hey boneheads…I hope it’s cool to post this here.

    I have 4 tickets available for the Rangers Debbies game at Yankee Stadium. Unfortunately, I’ll be unable to attend, so I’m trying to sell them.

    They are in the 3rd row of section Main 232A. Face value for each ticket is $308 but I am willing to sell all 4 for $1k and will ship FedEx.

  59. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    You *shouldn’t* have to, *Gravy*

    Rob: What’s *important* is that you get *back* to telling us about player’s *attractiveness*. That’s your *job* on this blog.

  60. Rob in Beantown on

    Thanks for pigeonholing me into that role when I have *so much* to offer in terms of *other* things

  61. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I guess that’s *true*, Rob. But you have to learn the *fundamentals* of painting before you can be a *truly* wonderful abstract *artist* Get the analogy here?

  62. Going upstate for the weekend in a couple of hours, so still have to DVR the game. Anyone around Hudson/Catskill area this weekend to meet for a drink? Or two?

  63. Rob in Beantown on

    It’s pretty *silly* that the Rangers wear a “heritage” jersey against Original Six teams that has less of a heritage than their regular blueshirts do.

  64. I’ll be riding *bikes* with Manny in Prospect *Park* all weekend long. If any other hipsters wants to join, look for me wearing *loafers* (no socks) and what will appear to the non hipsters as slim fit *capri* pants. I’ll also have 4 different mis-matching shirts *layered* appropriately. I just got a brand new *organic* bike with *vegan* tires that is perfect for a ride around *Brooklyn*. Then we’re going to a *Ray* Ban convention. All are welcome.

  65. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    I just bought the *Wu-Tang* Edition Bicycle put out by *State Bicycle Co.* It’s really awesome. I don’t know any of the *Members* of the Wu-Tang Clan but I look so *cool* riding it. I can even get girls that *are* not white. I will be wearing my special *Levi’s 511* Commuter Jean which has a *great* place to put my *Bike Lock* and extra *crotch* reinforcement.

  66. Meth, RZA, GZA, ODB, Raekwon, Ghost Face, Inspectah, U-God … I think there’s one more real member.

  67. “So when you see me on the real, forming like Voltron, remember I got deep like a Navy Seal.”

  68. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    “He is such a *hipster* doofus, and has not changed at all since college. Do you think he knows he is a *hipster* doofus?”

  69. How is it possible the at I never made the RZA, the GZA, the MZA connection before now?

    What was EM ZEE A is now the MIZZA.

  70. Manny-O-War, King of Metal on

    Neither is *Masta Killa*. There were *9* original Members of Wu-Tang. Trust me guys, I saw them *live* because I’m straight *hood*

  71. Stranger Nation on

    What ever happened to blog ticket contests?
    NYR 5 – DET 2
    GWG Boyle
    Henk – 29 saves, but lets in 2 softies

  72. there is a blast furnace 93,000,000 miles away…

    you think burning styrofoam makes any difference?

    small minds

  73. Masta Killa was on 36 Chambers therefore Masta Killa is an original member. If you weren’t on 36 Chambers, you *are not* original Wu-Tang. Cappadonna was not on 36 Chambers. Done.

  74. I’m not a golfer, but when I see pros taking practice swings over and over again on an 8 inch put, it *really* seems like overkill. Am I missing something?

  75. what you’re missing is that so many of these guys now have swing coaches and mental coaches who drill into their heads to have a routine and to do that routine no matter what every single time. That’s why it takes them five hours to play. If they hear a noise or if the wind picks up, they have to start the routine all over again.

    drives me nuts, too.

  76. I don’t get how more golfers don’t lose it like Duval did. Just seems so easy to get into your own head.

  77. What’s worse is watching your average hacker, in the foursome in front of you go through the same pre shot routine only to skull the ball thirty yards in a 45 degree angle. I may suck at golf but I suck at it hastily.

  78. well, I kinda understand with the zillions of dollars up for grabs, and how one bad swing can cost you a bundle. … but still …

  79. These ancient rivals have met in the playoffs … um … uh …I know they played in, I think, the 1950 final. Pete Babando.
