Mad Dog's favorite sentence of late has been his sarcastic "Do you think I'm stupid?" when someone calls and disagrees in with him. When the caller says no, he/she just doesn't agree with everything Russo just said, that caller is cut off and Russo goes on to rant how the callers are all morons.
God dammit I want to throw things at this blowhard...
Come on Rangers, let's make it happen and embarrass this self-proclaimed hockey analysist. If it does happen, I will be one of the first ones to call and rip him a new one.
What Russo was doing today was just blatant baiting of Rangers fans. We fall for it because we're so excited to hear anyone talking about hockey it's so rare.
He's just trying to get everyone revved up to talk about his show. He's an idiot and a publicity w h o r e.
He equates the Rangers to the Yankees, which is a completely ignorant analogy. (he dosen't say this, but that's what's going on in his head) So he equates Ranger fans with Yankee fans, and even though many Ranger fans ARE also Yankee fans, the two are nothing alike. The Yankees have won soooo much. Thats why he likes to mess with their fan base.
But Ranger fans have not enjoyed the perrenial winning that Yankee fans enjoy. We suffer with our team, and are probably more like Red Sox fans than Yankee fans in that respect. But he understands less about us than he does about hockey in general.
The guys is trying to make a living, and he lives and dies by ratings. If he can create some "buzz" about his show by dissing a respectably-sized fan-base like the New York Rangers, then he's all for it.
My message to him is : IYM and that doesn't stand for Italian Youth Movement.
Has anyone else noticed how much alike Mike the Blimp and Rosie Fatdonnel look? Take the glasses off Mike and they look like twins. Just can't decide whether Mike the blimp looks like an ugly dike or Rosie looks like an ugly man!
The guys are takin it to em again, we can win this series when we keep fighting.
Jmho who cares about M and M. They do whatever, if you like sports IV fine, there are other places to get that too. If they don't like NYR that is their problem, they don't seem too informed about hockey anyway. Just my rant, Go Rangers!! See all at game 7 viewing party (we hope).
