Because everyone posts two or more times now:

Firstly, it really isn't ANY of your business (Hawk) regarding OUR Italian vacation, but just to show you that I have nothing to hide, I will give some details... I did not stay with the Faux Group... As I am a second generation Italian-American (grandparents came through Ellis Island), I have a significant number of family members still living in Italy... If you know anything about Italians, you would be aware of the fact that I had no choice but to stay with some of them - They INSISTED - its the Italian way... It was wonderful seeing many of my 2nd and 3rd cousins (some for the first time), as well as great Antz and uncles... So Hawk, there is your "vindication statement." Furthermore, that will be the last bit of personal info you ever get out of me - nothing suspicious about anything I do... The pissing contest is over...

I am here to talk hockey...

1) Review of picks:

Thank you...

The Dark Ranger said...

Great picture...perhaps a weekly posting? Ah, you know how to get to those hockey fans don't you?

You are a brave one, Faux, with that predictions commitment...The Dark Ranger will join in on the fun. Thanks for the Yashin video...takes my mind off last night's game against Atlanta.

Antzmarching said...

TDR, your Rag$ are making me look really bad right now, as I picked them to go to the Cup finals... It seems like all the factors that people questioned regarding the Rag$ are proving legitimate at this point...

What is interesting to me is the fact that the team didn't want Matt Cullen (for his salary) to be a third line guy... But now, its fine for Chris Drury to be in that role for more money... Now, Cullen is back in Carolina, being used properly, and he's thriving again...

The Rangers WILL turn things around, but at this point, I feel as though I have overrated them...


1) Looks like as Antz had predicted here a week ago, Tom renney is on the hot seat in NY.
2) We haven't heard anything regarding a possible move, but if they lose a few more sather may feel compelled to pull a Waddell

The Dark Ranger said...

Agreed faux, Sather is a son-a-bitch and no one would be surprised by this (though, most believe Renney has at least one year grace based on his performance over the last two seasons). ...and Antz...last season the RANGERS (correct sp!) were gritty and desperate the last half of last season, 17 wins out of 19 games. I think the Rangers themselves have been reading too many of the pre-season predictions, and we're getting an overpaid and underplaying team of star players (though, some great newbies on the team: Callahan, Girardi, Dubinsky, & The King Lundquist) The whole team is overrated, until they turn their sh%t around. The talent sure is there...

Antzmarching said...

LOL TDR, thanks for the spelling lesson - I hope I remember that for the next post... And, I should know better... With the cap in place, there is no financial advantage... Its not like the Rangers are playng under the same rules as the Yankee$
