The fact that The Garden needs to provide entertainment like this for the fans or the corporate suits is really sad. Play the fricking organ for christ sakes!!!
You're at a Hockey game, not a circus. I swear it's about everything else but the game.
I could deal with this stuff if it was actually real, but the fact that this was fake is really sad because of the fact, like I said above, The Garden feels the need to entertain or cater to the no attention span person, by doing stupid crap during the stoppages of the game.
Me personally, i'm there to see a Hockey game, not "entertainment". The game is the entertainment.
It's like all some people care about is getting there 15 seconds of fame, and getting on camera or Gardenvision, especially when the team is losing late in the 3rd or down by 2 goals or more, and yet all some of these people could care less about the Rangers losing, as long as they dance or get on camera, all is well I guess.
Anyway, it's all cheesy entertainment, and I don't really have a problem with these things if they're real, but the fact that it was fake, makes The Garden seem desperate to get the fans going in the game or in the crowd.
And I agree that an original 6 franchise like the Rangers who play in NEW YORK look like a circus a lot nowadays with this crap. This is the kind of "entertainment" you would see at a Panthers game. This is New York, and we don't need cheap gimmicks to get the fans going in the crowd or the game. I also didn't like the fact they gave away thundersticks at Game 3 last year against the Capitals, this is not Anaheim, we make the noise with our hands here, not stupid thundersticks. Just give us our playoff towels and we'll be fine.
This is all JMO, and how I look at stuff like this.
And regarding the Cheif, as NYRFAN218 said, The cheif passed away a few years back unfortunately.
