  1. Looks to me like Leonard Williams has a cape tied around his neck or something. Not a fan. And for the black, which is awful to even have in the first place, shouldn't the stripes also be white like the numbers?
  2. I mean, just look at him. This is the dictionary definition of dumpster fire:
  3. Umm...does this guy really know what he got himself into? And who calls owning the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes a "dream?" Well technically nightmares are still dreams...
  4. Cleveland was supposed to get an NFL team back in 1999 but that's yet to materialize...
  5. I've been there on two occasions and both times I had a pleasant experience. Is it the Taj Mahal? No, of course not. But I never felt like I was in a cesspool either. I loved Shea and I know you did too Tank, but Shea was much grimier than the Coliseum still is today. I know they have sewage problems in the locker rooms but if they're going to stay for a while perhaps maybe they finally go about overhauling that problem?
  6. I was at Game 6 last night, slept about 3 hours before getting up today. The Rangers still have some work to do, but at least for one night, it finally felt awesome to once in my life be able to experience something like I saw last night. That validated why I watch this stuff year after year, night after night. I finally got a return on my investment, and it's great. Now do it again...
  7. I like the logo but I hate the helmet. It's just too big, I'm sorry. I'm all for trying new things but it just looks awkward.
  8. Am I the only one that loves hockey but hates that the NHL shuts down for 2 weeks to partake in the Olympics? I care infinity billion more about the Stanley Cup than a gold medal. I'd take one Ranger cup over a million US golds.
  9. When I played high school volleyball Bloomfield High in Bloomfield NJ had their court in a long-since discontinued indoor pool gymnasium. Very tight sidelines and low ceilings but it worked.
  10. It's a shame most of the tapes of Kiner's Korner were destroyed. I'd watch a ton of them. There's one on YouTube, from Tom Seaver's return to the Mets in 1983: If Ralph Kiner were still alive today he'd be spinning in his grave.
  11. It's permanent. I suppose they could've painted over it with a bigger shield for this game, but that's part of the turf. They can't take it out without ripping up the field.
  12. Shouldn't that make them the Glendale Coyotes then? Heck, they probably should be considering the amount of money Glendale payed for them... A great partner? That's the understatement of ever.
  13. Well technically the first four said AFL/NFL and the fifth just said "Super Bowl V".
  14. This was a screwjob of the Seahawks at the Meadowlands in '98 which was one of the plays leading to a cry for replay. That's a fourth down where Vinny came up short and the winning TD was awarded, Jets 32 Seattle 31. Anyway if you notice the other side of the goal line, it's the same color as the astroturf in the field of play. This was a December game which was unusually mild and humid here in north Jersey, and they had to tear up the Jets astroturf end zone and replace it with a plain end zone with no markings after the original bubbled up and wasn't safe to play on. They switched to grass anyway a couple of seasons later but that turned out to be an unmitigated disaster, even after a multimillion dollar removable tray system was installed. They've had field turf ever since, though at Giants Stadium the end zones weren't removable, they'd paint them only with a white wordmark JETS or GIANTS.
  15. They're not tarps. There aren't any end zones at all. That's what it looks like when they swap out Jets/Giants. They'll be installing the end zones soon. This is how they do it:
  16. I think the green grass behind the far half-boards is such an awesome stark contrast, that's for sure.
  17. Well I was at Game 4 sitting front row loge down the LF Line at Shea. First pitch, Jeter takes Bobby Jones deep into the bleachers. Scarred for Life. Wait, isn't this supposed to be hockey? Uh... Potvin Sucks!
  18. You mean like this one? Or this one? (Though they did win in extras) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPubuWgC2tM Or my personal favorite from last season, even though it wasn't in the Bronx? (Don't know why the link isn't working…)
  19. Quit being disingenuous. I know full well the only real reason you're pumped about that game (and the Isles game on Wednesday) is that those games aren't at MSG, which means the Rangers might actually beat their regional rivals for a change. Well I've never seen the Rangers lose a game played in the state of New York outside of Madison Square Garden... (1-0 at the Nassau Mausoleum). But yeah they're 0-3 vs. the Devils and 1-2 vs. the Isles this season, with three games this week vs. them. Now would be a good time to buck that trend.
