    OK, so my ST trip this year is Mar 6 in Viera vs. Nats and Mar 7 in PSL vs. Nats.

    My dad is coming up in May to see a Wed matinee with me vs, yup, the Nats.

    I’ll be seeing a lot of O-Dog, I guess.

    Rick DiPietro will start tonight
    59 m ago By Katie Strang

    An Islanders spokesperson just confirmed that Rick DiPietro will get the start tonight against Dallas.

    This will be DiPietro’s first start in over a year. His last game in Dallas was November 15, 2006, a shutout in which he turned away 35 shots.

    New York Islanders: A testament to the mediocrity in the Eastern Conference, the Isles had given up 27 more goals than they’d scored (through Wednesday’s games) and yet were within hailing distance of the playoffs. Hard-working, but not particularly deep, the Isles still look like a long shot to make the playoffs. Grade: C-minus.

    New York Rangers: If Marian Gaborik doesn’t score, it generally doesn’t get done for the Rangers, who scored more than three goals in one game just three times in 26 games through the midway point. This team has enough holes in its lineup to drive a Zamboni through it, but good goaltending and a great penalty-killing unit are enough a lot of nights. Are they enough, though, to get the Rangers into the playoffs? Grade: B-minus.

    New Jersey Devils: The Devils have taken a significant step ahead of the other Eastern Conference powers, Washington and Pittsburgh. It is difficult to see how they will finish anywhere but at the top of the Atlantic Division and with the top seed in the East come playoff time. Martin Brodeur remains at the top of his game, although one wonders about his workload. Great depth and character up and down the Devils’ lineup. Grade: A-plus.

    Wall-E is a beautiful peice of humanist film making.

    Hey, if the Jets are relevant in early January then I’m happy as a clam.

    Yeah man, if Jets lose tomorrow Fatty will have a field day. If they win Fatty will have a field day also if they play the Colts (Ravens lose).

    Hey, if the Jets do pull it off tomorrow root like crazy for the Ravens on Sunday. Not only so the Jets play the Chargers 2nd round but because the possibility of hosting an AFC Conf Championship still exists. lol. (i’m joking…kind of)

    Rangers Offer Vlad $5MM Contract?
    By Ben Nicholson-Smith [January 8 at 1:52pm CST]

    1:52pm: MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers have offered Guerrero a contract. However, Sullivan’s sources indicate that it wasn’t close to $7MM. Interestingly, Sullivan hears from executives who haven’t heard Guerrero’s name connected with any other team.

    New Jersey Devils: The Devils have taken a significant step ahead of the other Eastern Conference powers, Washington and Pittsburgh. It is difficult to see how they will finish anywhere but at the top of the Atlantic Division and with the top seed in the East come playoff time. Martin Brodeur remains at the top of his game, although one wonders about his workload. Great depth and character up and down the Devils’ lineup. Grade: A-plus.

    Do see this Rene? The Devils rule. Rangers drool!

    The Devils are run very competently. Still play boring hockey.
