5 Reasons I’m OK With The Rangers Losing To The Bruins
It’s been a tough few weeks for Boston. That my favorite hockey team could give them a little civic joy makes me happy. I’m a giver.
The NY Knicks got tossed out in the second round of the NBA playoffs. It just wouldn’t be fair for their corporate brothers to do better. Remember, both teams made deep runs in 94. And by “deep runs”, I mean the Rangers won the Stanley Cup and John Starks is still trying to make a basket.
Sam Rosen said “this one will last a lifetime”. I don’t think he meant it as a curse but you can’t argue with Sam, so there it is.
There’s an outside chance that this loss with lead to John Tortorella being fired by the Rangers. There’s an even smaller chance that he’ll be hired to coach the Vancouver Canucks. Do I want to see Torts coach a soft and defensively irresponsible team? Yes, yes I do. Very much so. Anything that makes it possible for the stars to align this way is ok with me.
THE NUMBER 1 REASON I’M OK WITH THE RANGERS LOSING TO THE BRUINS:
Whoever wins the Cup will have to know they did so in a year that didn’t have the full compliment of games and every one will point and laugh at them for as long as they live because this won’t really count so take your stinky “win” and choke on it!
