  1. Ordinary as they might have been tonight, if DelZ had Girardi’s or McD’s night, he would have fourteen votes.

  2. I think I’ll order one of those cars they advertise on MSG. $99 dollars per month, $65,000 down.

  3. Stranger, when all is said and done, that stupid, ill-conceived trip (all the GM’s fault) may have cost this team dearly. It’s a legit reason for their poor start with a new coach.

    Rangers are in good shape…they’ll finish # 2. Flyers have a rough schedule. But, even the finish third, the rangers will best the flyers in 5

    OK. Back after swinging and swaying from the earthquake out here. Earthquakes are kind of like the Rangers. You go up, and down, and up, and down in waves. Not unlike the emotions of the Boneheads.

  6. I have 0 concern facing the Flyers in round 1 whether it be on the road or at home. If they cant beat the Flyers in a 7 game series they shouldnt be playing in the playoffs.

  7. Every time I see the word “Banff” despite its beauty, I puke. All because of Sather’s pointless trip.

  8. I went to California once to visit my friend and an earthquake hit, and never having been through that I dived under the bed. When it was over my friend goes, “Hahahaha. Look at the big tough New Yorker, afraid of a little earthquake.”

    So I shot him.

  9. There were three people stranded on an island, a brunette, a redhead, and a blonde. The
    brunette looked over the water to the mainland and estimated about 20 miles to shore. So
    she announced, “I’m going to try to swim to shore.” So she swam out five miles,
    and got really tired. She swam out ten miles from the island, and she was too tired to go
    on, so she drowned.

    The second one, the redhead, said to herself, “I wonder if she made it. I guess it’s
    better to try to get to the mainland than stay here and starve.” So she attempts to
    swim out. The redhead had a lot more endurance than the brunette, as she swam out 10
    miles before she even got tired. After 15 miles, she was too tired to go on, so she

    So the blonde thought to herself, “I wonder if they made it! I think I’d better try
    to make it, too.” So she swam out 5 miles, ten miles, fifteen miles, and finally
    nineteen miles from the island. The shore was just in sight, but she said, “I’m too
    tired to go on!” So she swam back.

  10. Can somebody on this team besides the fourth line backcheck on D, and get the puck in deep on O? And Richards gets the one Press Ranger star! And Carp is about to give him another. I must be delusional.

    It felt like the ocean’s waves were going under your house. Rolling, not shaking. A few shelves rattled. I am about 20 miles south of the epicenter. Anaheim and Disneyland felt it a lot more. Mrs. TYM works at DLand, which was bedlam after with some rides closed. It was a magnitude 5.4 with 3.9’s before and after. Good thing the Ducks and/or March Madness were not going on at the Honda Center. That could have been a panic situation, as it is about 2 miles from the epicenter.

  12. Carp, that blonde joke reminds me of Del Zotto driving down to Disneyland and seeing a sign ‘Disneyland Left,’ so he turned around and drove back to Nashville.

    It was not a disaster of the magnitude of Martin St. Louis’ Ranger career to date, so we have that going for us. Doubt that there was any real damage and would be shocked if anyone got hurt. The rollers are not bad. The shakers are the ones that do damage.

  14. Didn’t we have one here in the eighties? I remember big rumblings in the night. Thought it was a nuclear explosion.

  15. Stranger Nation on

    everyone pozy now, but if they lose vs Earlers there will be blood in the streets

  16. Eddie Cubed

    Great show from Modesto on the satellite this morning as I was driving to JFK for the EARTHQUAKE here in LA that just greeted me.

    Dark Star > St. Stephen > The Eleven > Death Don’t Have No Mercy > Turn On Your Lovelight (wherein Pig did hisself proud)

    Brutal game tonight. Like a dead-on-arrival at the emergency entrance (period 1) then the stiff suddenly sits up, pours drinks, recites Yeats and Pound and Eliot for a couple of minutes (early period 2) and then goes back to being a stiff right afterwards.

  17. Martin St. Louis … Dan Newman … Mike Hartman … Jeff Brubaker … Larry Mickey … Martin St. Louis. (YIKES)

  18. I would love to know the % of NHL teams that lose the game after having scored three times in as little as three minutes

  19. So *That* didn’t work but *maybe* if I make some stuff *bold* like *That* <– it will destroy the post?

  20. So I’m *unable* break the blog.

    What if I leave a *bold asterisk thing open and just keep going without ever closing it…

  21. It definitely has to do with an — and then *a long sentence in bold following it.*

  22. *Maybe if I do the complete Reverse* with the bold in the front then an <– and then…

  23. You will note that the actual time stamp on the post becomes bold on the post that causes the disruption.

  24. I wish there was a way to produce <– ^some normal font so that I could make it stop^

  25. What if I try the @ <– symbol @like putting it around a long sentence and hoping it stops@

  26. Does +underline+ still <– +work on this blog because that might help stop it?+
