Wasn't too much a fan of Rodriquez either, but he sounds better than John does now.
Agreed, Amarante is not what he used to be and to me he really was the voice of the rangers... it was great when I would go to my one game a year as a kid and he would be singing at that game....
His voice is not the greatest and it is very noticeable now.... time for us to move on.. but to who??
Didn't like Rodriquez's style... If I was the Garden I would have some type of online contest like (and God knows I detest the existance of this show) American Idol to let the fans pick the next singer.... as cheesy as that sounds and while the best voice might not get picked, it would be something kind of neat...
Then again, you could play the argument its just the anthem, who cares who sings it.... but I would rather have one person do it most of the year and call them "our singer" then just random people over the 42 or so games...
