  1. Don’t worry, everyone. My buddies at Elias fixed it.
  2. Arena Rafters & Banners

    Banners for the Presidents’ Trophy aren’t too uncommon (I think). The NHL even had a rule before the trophy that allowed the team with the best record to hang an NHL League Champion banner: http://www.nhl.com/ice/awarddisplay.htm?season=20102011#president I don’t have a big problem with these. But the regular season conference champions banners are really dumb.

    I hate NY(AL) as much as anyone, but there was no way the 2001 ALCS was rigged. Now the 2000 World Series, on the other hand, was totally rigged.

    Go Orbit. We're all counting on you.

    Incorrect.
  6. It should be a bench minor, like the too-many-men call that happened later in the game. The coach got to choose who served the penalty both times, and both times he chose Ho-Sang. But for some reason they charge the delay of game to Ho-Sang and not the team.
  7. Poor Josh Ho-Sang is being charged 2 PIM because the Islanders lost an offsides challenge. The scorekeeper must be one of those HOW CAN HE WEAR 66??!!?!? clowns.

    Rosenthal is mistaken; they play the two games over two days (game 1 is Wednesday night/Thursday morning at 1 am eastern, game 2 is Thursday night/Friday morning...go NC Dinos!). They have a weird playoff system in Korea. It’s a ten-team league. The 4th and 5th place teams play in the two-game Wild Card series, with the 4th place team hosting both games and needing to win only one. The winner faces the 3rd place team in the best-of-five semi-playoff; the winner faces the 2nd place team in the best-of-five playoff; the winner faces the 1st place team in the best-of-seven Korean Series. Until recently, there were a couple of neutral site games in the Korean Series. So the 1st place team has a bye into the finals, but has to sit around for a long time between the end of the season and the start of their postseason.

    When they played “road games” at Citi Field against the Rays, a Mets fan gave a thumbs down after a Yankees home run and it was caught on camera. The Yankees stole it because they like stealing from the Mets.

    The Yankees play GBA every damn home game. The PA guy used to tell the fans to offer a silent prayer, which made it even worse. I’m an atheist and don’t pray. But at least they’ve stopped doing that (I think).

    Their employers have no problem with them protesting at work (and many joined in!).

    I’ve been sitting thru God Bless America for years, protesting its inappropriateness at baseball games. I welcome football players joining me in a simple, peaceful form of protest, even if they’re getting a tad more attention for their cause than I am for mine.

    Exactly. The game has changed. We have more pitchers throwing 97+ mph fastballs. Batters are bigger and stronger, and they’re swinging for the fences on nearly every pitch (which is why we have so many homers and strikeouts). So balls are flying off the bat at speeds higher than ever before. Base coaches wear helmets now because a minor league coach was killed after being hit by a line drive; hopefully it doesn’t take a fan being killed before all 30 teams extend the netting. (Of course, there was some blowback after MLB required coaches to wear a helmet, but that mostly came from Larry Bowa and he’s an asshat anyway.)

    Was working so I missed the Isles' return to the Coliseum.
