Sorry guys, because the Rangers lost the opener to the Bruins, I've been forced to publish this brag post by Greg of Bloguin's Boston Bruins blog "Day's of Y'Orr". Ugh...
Hello Rags fans. I hope you all are having a terrible day, remembering how both the Bruins and the Penguins completely annilhated the "best team in the Eastern Conference". Last season, Kevin and I had a bet where the winner of the Bruins/Rangers game would have to use a Twitter avatar given to them by the winner until the two teams played again.
Unfortunately, the Bruins lost and I was stuck with Sean Avery hitting Tim Thomas in the back of the head for about two months. So we decided that whoever won the opener this year would get to post on the other's blog bragging about it. So....suck it!
Fair Warning: This will not be gracious, complimentary, nice or anything associated with me saying "HEY GOOD GAME RANGERS".
And finally, my thoughts on Madison Square Garden:
Everyone talked about the Rangers offense and goaltending coming into this season. Where does New York's offense currently reside? 25th overall with 2.00 goals per game. Their defense? 27th with 4.50 goals against per game (thanks for that 6 piece, Pittsburgh) and Lundqvist? Only 38th (out of 43 goalies) in GAA at 4.77 and 35th in SV% with a staggering .865.
Their power play sucks (11.1% success, 25th overall) which is a little weird, considering that have players who can score goals (or actually, they can't).
Enjoy Rupp getting his face broken (again) in what is sure to be a rematch on the ice tonight. I hope Biron's pads are broken in because based on Lundqvist's play, you'll need him more than ever.
So if David Ortiz goes 5 for 8 with 1 HR and 3 RBIs in his first two games he'll finish the season with a .625 batting average, 81 HRs and 243 RBIs?
Stats based on about 4% of the season and random but funny GIFs? I'd say you've wasted your opportunity.
If you guys don't read DOY regularly, you're missing out. Especially when they play Buffalo. This is nothing, trust me haha. Still, well done, @PezDOY .
Hey so remember that time Joel Ward knocked your team out and then basically gave us the lead in our series vs them? That was a fun day.
Bring it on, punk.
i in no way can support how crappy the Rangers have played the first two games, and yes the gifs are pretty funny, but even i could have talked better smack than that.
Typically obnoxious New England trash. Brought this blog down several pegs with those teenybopper gifs.
Children focus on stats this early. Stick with the funny pictures. Also the rupp fight was pretty even.
Lol. Gotta admit, pretty entertaining. Nothin you could do except take it. They'll bounce back tonight and the bragging rights will go away no worries. Woulda been funny to see a Rangers blog on his site though haha.
keep betting on our Rangers! look at the stats from last season against Baaastin. - if you bet on the season this crybaby would be wearing the Avery avatar all year.
Kevin, you have to stop betting with 5 year olds...no offense to any other 5 year olds out there that may have some talent.
I'm sure if I had to listen to the desperately forced and over-exaggerated Boston accent those clowns on NESN insist on using I'd be full of hate too.
@AnnoyingJoe Baseball sucks.
@AnnoyingJoe You only say that because the Rangers suck. If their stats were good and I didn't use them, you'd say the complete opposite.
@RealMikeSalerno I remember that. I bet Tim Thomas is still pulling Mike Knuble's armpit hair from between his teeth.
@thisandthatfellow so much what?
@_Jack worse than the Rangers offense?
@DanW We must have been watching a different hockey game if you think the Rupp fight was "even".
@mattyjets As opposed to the lovely New York accent?
@mattyjets Nice Avery jersey, you got the cool specs to go with it?
@Dapper_Dan_Man And that's saying a lot.
@PezDOY yup. And if the Bruins were 0-2 with shitty stats you'd be yelling"its onlytwo games!" and you'd be right. it's called being a fan.
@PezDOY @AnnoyingJoe Dude, we know they've looked like crap for the first 2 games. You aren't shedding any light on the situation. So basicly what your post breaks down to is you giving Rangers fans the finger...ouch...you blew it. Unless you're on the Jersey Shore, you absolutly blew it. I'm sure since you run a blog your knowledge of hockey must run beyond gif's and middle fingers. You know as we'll as anyone that 2 games is nothing. If you think we are going to suck and miss the playoffs then tell us why! Saying that the gif's were amusing.
