New York Rangers


Recommended Posts

Sitting at Madison Square Garden the now watching New York Rangers in the Ice Hockey against some team from Colorado. Some funny atmosphere these yanks at their sport. Crowd about 2 thirds full and no noise but for the occasional "Let's go Rangers" chant from a random group and a few hand claps. When they scored though there was a choreographed wee song from the crowd of "whoah whoah" for about 15 seconds :lol:

Upshot is don't worry about Ibrox being a bit quiet these days, there is miles between us and this sort of atmosphere.

Good colours and name though, but the fuckers won't serve me beer without my passport, joke. Lots of women here too.

I love Ice Hockey... dont watch it enough really!

Me neither. Used to in the days of Gretzky, Jagr, Tkachuk, Selanne, Messier, Kariya, Lidstrom, Forsberg, Bourque, Hasek and the likes, but less so now. I'm mightily jealous of this chap. I'd love to go to MSG for the hockey. Couldn't name any of the current crop though. :(

Lots of goals, 3-1 at the moment, so makes it interesting even though I have no idea of rules.

Quite an old club really for the yanks, their crest on the ice says 1926

Just gave a wee "Let's go Rangers" myself a minute ago, I'll be a convert soon anaw.

Anyone know if the colours and name has anything to do with us? I assume it somehow does..

Looks like a coincidence.... 'In 1925, the New York Americans joined the National Hockey League and played their home games at the old Madison Square Garden. Tex Rickard, the boxing promoter and ex-gold prospector who built and owned the arena, decided he wanted his own NHL team, which he was awarded in 1926. Rickard’s team was immediately dubbed “Tex’s Rangers” as a pun referencing the paramilitary force founded in Texas during the 1830s. The Americans folded in 1943, while Tex’s Rangers remain.'
