Larry Hutcher has to go to great lengths these days to see his beloved New York Knicks, who prior to Tuesday night, had won nine straight games. Hutcher has been a Knicks season ticket holder since the 1975-76 season, less than two years following the last New York NBA championship in 1973. His tickets were revoked by Madison Square Garden in October.
James Dolan always seems to have a beef with someone. Now the owner of Madison Square Garden, the New York Rangers and the New York Knicks is in the midst of a fight with the New York State Liquor Authority and Blue Shirt fans may get their beers knocked out of their hands in the melee.
Harassment charges within the walls of Madison Square Garden are nothing new. However, since the landmark $11.6 million payout to Anucha Browne Sanders, as a result of verbal abuse and sexual harassment suffered from former New York Knicks team president and head coach, Isiah Thomas, things have been relatively quiet in the human resources department at MSG.

The dispute between Time Warner Cable and the MSG Network has been resolved, according to a party near to Time Warner. The despute has left more than 2 million New York State residents without access to New York Knicks and Rangers game since the first of the year.
Earlier, I reached out to a Time Warner Cable Communications Manager who had joined "Game On" a few weeks ago, asking her for an update on the current MSG blackout situation. She informed me that, unfortunately, Time Warner and MSG seem far away from reaching a deal, as the two parties haven't resumed any negotiations since the January 1st blackout, when Time Warner issued an official
The New York Rangers will finally open the partially renovated Madison Square Garden tonight, but chances are you won't get to see it. Despite the existence of what seems like a substantial Ranger fandom in the Capital Region, Ranger games, including tonight's home opener (according to the Times Union), are routinely blacked out.
