My experience tonight at the Garden.

I was so fortunate to have been in Madison Square Garden tonight, to see #2's jersey be raised to the rafters. The Garden was rocking from start to finish. I met the likes of Greschner, Stan Fischler, and even sat through over time chatting it up with Al Trautwig. I started out with seats in section 342.. but in OT.. we moved down to where my friends brother was sitting.. 2 rows behind the Thrashers bench (yes, Holik's head is as big in person.. as it is on TV).

The Ceremony was BEAUTIFUL. The cheers when Graves was notified that his # would be retired next January were amazing. Good for him.. to make the night better, we win in a shoot out.. which I have on video.

I've always wanted to be at an historical sporting event.. and tonight was one of them. If u were in the Garden tonight, there was no better place if you're a Rangers fan.

I also got to meet Boomer Esiason, I didn't get a pic.. but he was sitting a row next to me.. he was a really cool guy. Stayed the whole game... I also met John Davidson which was cool.

My videos and pictures will ALL be posted tomorrow afternoon.. for those interested.

Tonight was truly amazing. I looked forward to it all day. I have never been to a retirement ceremony and I dont have words to describe it right now. Leetchie was my idol growing up, i was a defenseman and i wore number 2 in honor of him and just to see that was really emotional and i teared up quite a bit. I was in 420 tonight and i just dont know the words to describe it. Heck of a show put on by the garden and i was proud to be there. Thank you for everything Brian! and im looking forward to Gravey night next year!

The ones with Henrik and Shanny up came out somewhat blurry, but your other pictures are spot on. Nice work.
