I just saw this before. I feel if this went on at MSG, the crowd would riot and start booing anyone and anything.

Gonna be tough to get that Maccarone signature again too if they had given you a jersey
Same here, I generally go early and I don't stay after that often (used to be the opposite) but I really just go to socialize and talk to people/friends. I'd venture to guess that we've talked or atleast would recognize each other

I can't stand the main boards. Apparently we trap the most out of any team in the league and we have nothing but third liners. Also Thomas is the greatest goalie to grace this earth.

Is it just me or are people just stupid? I'm fine living in the HFNYR bubble.

Most likely at some point. I haven't been there much of late though as opposed to early in the season where I was basically there every other game. We've had to have run into each other at some point though because I've talked with everyone that's a regular there.

When people see blocked shots, low shot totals, and no goals, they automatically think it's the trap. Up until the final 10 minutes yesterday, the Rangers had 2 or even 3 guys forechecking hard. There's no point going over to the main board and arguing, gets you no where.

Random but whatever happened to the creeper bar at the top showing us who was viewing the forum? It made a brief comeback but disappeared again.

Going so OT it's now even funny:

What is the retail price on iPads and (the largest) iPod in the US? My gf's going to NY and LA now and I'm trying to find out if I'll save anything at all by buying it over there or if I should put something else on the wishlist

Well, I got a phone call from the 25th precinct in Harlem a few hours ago and they found the car! Two kids were in the car parked in front of a fire hydrant where the cop said there's drug deals frequently, so he approached them and they took off in my car, going in the wrong direction down Madison. The cops had a tough time catching up to them because of traffic, so the 2 kids got out of the car and ran on foot and left the car. They didn't catch the 2 *******s but they got my car! Unfortunately, the only thing (aside from stuff like the EZPass and loose change) they stole was my bag with my Lundqvist jersey in it The car was found with a whole bunch of GPS's in it and it smelled horrible of smoke, but the rest of my stuff (my skates, baseball glove, CD player, etc.) were all still in the car. I'll probably be more upset about the Ranger jersey tomorrow but I'm thrilled they found the car!
Happy, and surprised, to hear that!

My Civic got stolen in Yonkers a few years ago. I got it back minus a few parts.



Luckily, I had almost everything I needed to rebuild and put another 100K on it before moving on to another project.

I wasn't expecting anyone to find the car, but if it was found that's pretty much how I was expecting to find it haha. Cleaned it up yesterday, vacuumed, dusted, washed it, got some air fresheners, and the car is probably in the best shape it's been since I got it 6 years ago

Close to getting my first car. My aunt owns an auto shop so she has a 2006 Hyundai Elantra that she's selling for 5 grand, but for me it's $3500. Only 67000 miles on it, nothing needs to be fixed, gonna check it out later this week, "CAN'T WAIT!".

Cheaper than anywhere in Europe I'll tell you that plus she'll get the money she spent on taxes back at the airport. Also, the iPad 2 is almost impossible to find in both of those cities right now. Maybe in a few week that will be different.


BTW, I just got into Holy Cross. So excited. I'm almost positive I will be going there in the fall!

Just make sure she doesn't buy it in Chinatown or on Canal Street. They love to rip off tourists.

Thanks man. I thought it through and I think HC would be the better fit for me. I hear the campus is beautiful and well the parties are just amazing. Also, it's a bit harder to get into and I like the pre-med/business programs there.
