The New York Rangers played a classic game against the Islanders on Tuesday night. Chances are, though, if you live in the Albany area, you didn't get to see it - the rivalry game becoming the latest casualty of an outrageous NHL policy that blacks out the New York area teams in lieu of games played in Buffalo, some 130 extra miles away from our universally designated New York market
In recent years, MLB players have missed time due to injuries sustained while reaching for socks, high-fiving, toweling off, sneezing, playing guitar hero, tanning, and in the case off Geoff Blum - my personal favorite - putting on a shirt.
The Knicks and Nets were finally going to be good at the same time. What should always have been a more vitriolic, bitter rivalry was finally going to take that next step. It was going to be a year of New York basketball's reemergence.
Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown, Shakespeare said - and for the third straight game, those words will ring all too true for the Rangers' king; Henrik Lundqvist will be sitting again tonight with rookie Cam Talbot getting the start
While driving in this morning I happened across Amy Grant's Grown-Up Christmas List, and found my mind wandering into an imaginary reality wherein I could pen a letter to or serenade with a hit song some all-seeing bearded fellow and have him take care of what troubles me.
