This! I was talking to someone about scifi books and wanted to bring him up, and instead said "You know, that Anisimov guy.."

I routinely fantasize about the Rangers winning the cup at work. I always invision each one raising the cup and how quickly I'd buy an autographed lundqvist cup picture and frame it. Makes sense given my name lol. I would pretty much buy like four jerseys with stanley cup patches if they won the series too. Lundqvist for sure of course.

I'm the only one in my family that watches hockey. It's such a shame, I would have been a hockey player if I knew that this was the game I lived for when I was younger... even though I'm MZA's size lol...

24/7 i think about them. i love the giants and mets too. but nothing comes close to the love affair i have with the rangers, the giants and mets could never win again just as long as the rangers are playing well and winning is what matters. woke up this morning and immediately thought about the leafs and where we are in the standings and what another win would do. what makes me more proud is i know im not the only one which is why i love our diehard fan base. we are there for them through thick and thin. its great to see where we are heading. LGR!!!

This is what I do when I lie in bed at night. Imagine how it would happen, how it would play out...

I just hope they can win one before I die. Luckily, that seems to be plenty of time /jinx.

Yup, don't care that the Giants lost yesterday. They're not winning the Super Bowl again any time soon, especially after they pretty much sold their souls in 2007 lol. I'm more focused on the Rangers.

Not to be a jerk, but anyone who won the Conn Smythe accepts it before the Cup is presented...

On topic, I think about them a lot. And when my fiancee wants to go away somewhere, I immediately check the Rangers schedule to see where they are playing. Its the reason I just got back from Tampa.

coulda sworn Toews got it after the Cup was being passed around, but then again, i have an awful memory for a 21 year old. and you're not being a jerk, you're correcting me. no big deal.

still thinking about those Rangers, though...

I've come to look forward to the 4 hours I spend twice a week doing a job at work that literally requires me to stand around doing nothing for long stretches of time. This website is not blocked, but most other sports sites are, so I spend that entire 4 hours on here.

Asimov wrote great books and is one of the founders of the SF genre. Did you ever see the movie I, Robot? That was loosely... very loosely... based on a series of short stories and novels that Asimov wrote. Caves of Steel is a great murder-mystery SF novel. There was no lame machine uprising in his stories though.

The Foundation series is incredible, too. A bit more of a sociology-in-space thing, but great. Coruscant in the Star Wars universe was definitely inspired by Asimov's description of a world called Trantor.

Some people (myself included) consider Asimov to have been one of the best sci-fi/fantasy writers there is. Highly recommend. The Foundation series is phenomenal.
