It Really Is A Vacation

So as The Dark Ranger is engulfed in a swanky resort in the Mexican Riviera, without internet access,, I am told MY MAN, Captain Chris Drury, pulled out his first NYR career hat trick last evening against the Tampa Bay Lightning (5-2, I think?).

Having obviously missed the game, the only thing better than this pina colada before me and leaving the kids at home would have been attending the game, witnessing the ice full of expensive Rangers hats and properly being able to share that experience with you - my dear readers of Dark! For those that feel I let you down, just remember our Blueshirts did not last night!

For years I have preached the hidden virtues of Chris Drury and perhaps this is another beginning we have to look forward to. One more 'hat off' to Mike, The Ranger Pundit, for always believing in my belief!

To cover last night and this weekend's games, I am hoping my cohort 'syr11' will be there for the full report..

Adios for now....

Now back to the fancy drink....



  1. Amigo, enjoy your vacation. My entire family was at Mayo de Riveira in August, where my son got married. What a place.

    Your boy was great last night and he MUST step up and be our true leader and save us from our depressing coaching staff.

    Buenos Nachos and Taquillas.

  2. Hey TDR, it was actually Drury's second career hat trick. The first came with Buffalo ... against the Rangers in a 7-4 Sabres win on October 14th, 2006 (thank you media guide).

    Enjoy the vaca!!
