Oh, come on. I wasn't the first or the last to call my team by that name, nor will it stop other fans from calling them that, and by "fans" I mean Ranger fans.

Maybe the term has been so overblown that it has entered our lexicon. I always think that the people who get upset over it are too "high-class."

The Islanders are a poor example. You have to feel sorry for them. You can't critique them any iota but you have to feel sorry for them. That's what I always got whenever I argued with an Islander fan.
