I Love the NY Rangers

We jumped, we yelled, we sang, we drank, we ate and we lost, but we had a blast.  Yes, I splurged and bought tickets to the Rangers/Flyers game on Sunday.  Holidays can be tough when you are far from your family, so I've found that distractions are necessary.  What better distraction than playoff hockey?


Madison Square Garden was amazing.  Playoff hockey is amazing.  Losing was not so amazing.  I'll be watching the next few games from my couch because the price tag is also not so amazing, but it was totally worth it.




I've been without an NHL hockey team since the MN North Stars left and went to Texas when I was 5.  I never really got on board with the Wild.  My husband is a huge LA Kings fan since that's where he grew up.  When we moved here, I decided to give the Rangers a try and I love everything about them.  Getting to finally see them at the Garden was amazing (yes, I've used that word 1 million times in this post.)



And next time, someone needs to tell me to go home after the game and not participate in shots of fireball, K?  Go RANGERS Go!!!!!!!!!

  2. I live in Oklahoma and we only have the AHL teams here, but I love it because the tickets are so cheap!

  3. I'm so glad you pulled the trigger and went. It looks like you had a fabulous day despite the Flyguys winning.

  4. Honestly, that game sucked. Glad you guys had a good time though. As a long time Ranger fan all I ever get is heartburn watching them in the playoffs!

  7. My husband-to-be and his family are really into hockey, so I've been to a few Hurricanes games. I tried really really hard to get into it but I'm really just there for some beer and to pretend like I know what's going on. ::sigh:: Is he sure he wants to marry me?
