Here's a pic of Mark Messier donning the fire helmet of fallen FDNY Chief Ray Downey during the Rangers home opener on October 7, 2001 as a tribute to him and all the first responders who died that day as well as a thank you to all the heroes of 9/11...
I generally don't like feeling happy over someone's death but obviously Bin Laden is the exception. It's a great day for America and an even better day for America. I also remember that pre-season game that just stopped between the Rangers and Flyers. It was declared a 2-2 tie. The Rangers really helped me get my mind off what happened. Then ofcourse the Yankees in the World Series. Bin Laden's death has really united America, something that hasn't happened since 9/11. Crazy. Great picture of Messier, and his facial expression really exemplifies how everyone felt after what happened. Great post.
I love this blog, and you do a great job Kevin, thank you. And you of course have every right to your opinions, no matter what they are. But I'd personally rather not see posts of this nature.
@cb1 I fully respect your opinion, but this event effected so many Rangers fans that live in and around New York (heck throughout the world for that matter) so I felt it was more than appropriate.
