Within a 2-minute span, New York sports fans (well at least NY Rangers and NY Mets fans) had themselves a great, big Sporgasm. With the Rangers facing a BRUTAL home loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals, veteran center Brad Richards, (who signed this offseason to a monster contract) scored on the power play with 6.6 seconds remaining in Game 5 on Monday night. Then two seconds later, New York Mets rookie infielder Jordany Valdespin, teed up a 9-iron, pinch hit 3-run home run off former bitch-ass Boston Red Sox, turned Philadelphia Philly closer, in the ninth inning. Both teams would later go on to win their respected games.
Let’s go to the tape:
2 minutes later….Valdespin would cap it off:
That right there is why there is nothing like New York sports. What a great few minutes for sports fans here. We all know that I am not a big hockey guy, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t pumped when the Rangers won that game and MSG EXPLODED. There is no arena in the world like MSG. ESPECIALLY in the playoffs. As for the Mets, sure it’s only May, but this team is playing inspired ball and it is ALWAYS great to be the Phucking Phillies and their pussy ass closer, Jonathon Papelbon.
So minutes later, at about 1:35 into overtime Rangers defensemen, Marc Staal ended it with a power-play slapper from the point that gave the Rangers a 3-2 win and a 3-2 lead in the series.
Gotta love New York. Now if only the Knicks could pull off some miracle and bring the series back to the Garden for a game 6….we could be looking at a crazy summer here.
