OK. So for the third time in four playoff series, and in the span of 13 months, your Rangers are headed to another heart-attack Game 7 for you. Take out the Pepto or the adult beverage or whatever helps you get through these games. Thoughts: 1) I think I told… Read More →
Apologies, but tech problems caused the delay in posting this … and also forced me to cut it to a single answer.

Just a note before I head off to practice again (geez, will they ever play this series?). We are planning to do a Live Playoff Chat Thursday at 11:30 a.m. So plan to be there. Or else. Hopefully it will be the first of many. In the meantime, as you… Read More →
