MSG

And then it happened…….

So the Bar Wife/MILF and I would tweet each other this football season how much we hated football. Primarily this exchange was because our beloved Razorbacks sucked worse than Tennessee. Side note – I do worry that Bar Wife/MILF is introducing her daughter to all kinds of new curse words but only time will tell. I was telling her that she can become a Hockey Fan and I would even get her a New York Rangers sherzie if she wanted one. So far she is still sticking to her guns and not giving up on the Hogs. Before I go any further do you recall this POST when I called myself out for not watching much college football?

Well I did it again and this time I fear that I may be banned from Max’s Sports Bar because of it. Over the Thanksgiving holiday the work place had the suite in MSG. The event was for Red Hot Hockey which is Boston University vs Cornell in Men’s Collegiate Hockey. I invited some customers who actually were excited to attend the game (I found out that it is actually called a game instead of a match) and I got to take Mrs. Trumpet also.

As we were heading to the Garden I get a text from Utah TS asking me if I was watching the Iron Bowl (for you Yankees that is Auburn vs Alabama football game) and I had to call myself out. I wasn’t watching the game and was choosing ice hockey over college football. I know, I am kind of ashamed to admit it and I think that I may be also turning into the Las Vegas Canadian. #letsgoRangers

IMG_2272I am kind of ashamed to admit it to anyone but the Hockey was pretty good. And trust me when I say that the Fans get into it!

IMG_2258Since the Grizz are the new dumpster fire, I may officially become a fan of these guys.

IMG_2265Here is a cool thing that the Garden does. On the walls of the suite level they have pictures of past performers that have visited the garden. Yes that is Sting, Annie Lennox and Lenny Kravitz back stage.

IMG_2266Elvis’ 1972 visit to the Garden. You got to represent!

IMG_2260Mrs. Trumpet – “man it is cold sitting in the seats”
Me – “Ice is cold honey.”

IMG_2262As usual the Garden was packed!

IMG_2263Fun Fact when Cornell scores they taunt the visiting goalie by chanting “It’s all your fault!” That didn’t go over too well with my work momma who’s son is on the 8th grade hockey team and is the goalie.

So hopefully when I visit Max’s Sports Bar in December the will serve me beer. I promise not to ask if we can put on the Rangers or Islanders if they are playing. I promise.

I hope you had a good laugh today.

Pictures of the Week! And its Restaurant Week Too!

Hope everyone in Memphis is trying to stay cool. I am not going to lie, it felt pretty nice this week not sweating into my socks after our rainstorm earlier in the week. The Kid in the puffy coat still takes the cake, bless his heart. We are starting New York’s summer restaurant week that runs till August 18. In other words this is my Graceland or otherwise its like a fat kid eating cake!

daniel-profile-860x574Oh Grainbin Girl is going to be pissed now. Yep we are going to be dining with this man at not one but 2 of his joints for restaurant week.

IMG_1372I think it was best when Rebecca said that this person must be from Belize. It was 70 degrees out folks.

IMG_1365Shout out to Sandy and Rick our former Rowing Coaches – That is big balls rowing right there folks. That isn’t some little lake, it is the Hudson River! #Power #thatswhatshesaid

IMG_1363Need to make it over there one time. I hear it is nice

Pictures of the Week

It has been a good week and this weekend will be even better. We head out to Atlantic City to annoy our former neighbor and see which one of us can resemble a Christmas Tree the best. Have a good one folks.

IMG_1805“Excuse me, do you know how to get to 19 Bowery ?”
“Sure you go down this street and hang a left at the Unicorn on the Fire Escape!”
That man wasn’t lying when he said Unicorn on Fire Escape!

IMG_1794Let’s play a game, can we see how man sweaty tourists we can get to stand on the corner of Broadway and 34th Street.

IMG_1813Apologies to my favorite Hippo loving,  Todd Rundgren singing, Not for Profit working Jessie W if this song gets stuck in your head. #Robocares

IMG_1814Who knew that so many of my friends were Radio Head fans.

IMG_1818It really doesn’t suck being in a suite in the Garden.

IMG_1822Kind of cool having a 19K person sing-a-long!

IMG_1823I am not sure if I should be excited or offended that my client gave me this. I think she saw the sandwich I ate yesterday on Instagram.

IMG_1826Got to love the 3 dollar shoe shine joints in the Financial District

FullSizeRenderGet ready former Neighbor to raise your hand because you heard the same story from yesterday. Oh and you too KJ and JD! It is going to be on!

 

Pictures of the Week(s)

IMG_0581Brad Pee – This 25 caliber joker was only 10.50 at MSG. How much are they screwing you guys at the FEF or AutoZone.

IMG_0540Um Excuse me Marcus how many carets is that rock in your ear?

IMG_0567I hear that they filmed that movie where she ‘faked it’

IMG_0568Got to love those East Village Bars. I think his name was Gerald

IMG_0570I have a couple of questions and I would prefer to have a draught beer for fear of you opening my beer with that thing!

IMG_0571Men’s Room door in the East Village – “Here is Johnny!”

IMG_0573I want to sit on a patio with balloons please.

Have a good day!

Oh that was cold weather for you Yankees, I have had it worse.

Do me a favor, if I die from a snowplow incident, make sure someone comes along and deletes this blog post because it was apparent that I tempted fate one too many times. Anyway kudos to me as I achieved my “Southerner living in Sub Artic Temp” badge as 17 degrees with a wind that can cut you to the bone wasn’t pleasant but I survived. Sure I must give a huge shout out to Under Armor Winter Gear, all of those wool animals who died to keep my arse warm and North Face for some warm gloves. I bopped around the Garment District all day yesterday with two reps and as one of the reps whose parents live in Minnesota said to me; “This time of the year we wear sleeping bags” and was she right.

So what did a kid who only read about frigid temp in the news do to celebrate his first Yankee Milestone? Head to Madison Square Garden to watch the New York Rangers Hockey Team play the Dallas Stars! My first NHL Hockey contest game competition match, I was excited! Now I will have to come full disclosure; thanks to my employer, we were able to enjoy one of the luxury suites, closed circuit TV’s, great buffet, ice cold drinks and a in-suite bathroom. Did it bother me that the suite was larger than my apartment? Dude it Madison Square M’Effin Garden, who cares! The sporting contest (still don’t know if I call it a match or game) was great and the Rangers smoked the Stars 6 to 2, I actually learned what offside was, and that high sticking is considered bad. Just You Wait till I paint my face ala Puddy next time. “Gotta Support The Team, Let Them Know You Are Out There!”

IMG_0095

Got to Love the Graphics they put on the ice during intermission and Pre-Game!

IMG_0097My Ice Hockey Translator – “No CBT you don’t call the Hogs before the drop of the puck!”

IMG_0100

Before a Face off – “Pick up your bottom Jaws you hockey followers”

IMG_0098I couldn’t name one player but there is always next time

IMG_01026-2 is good right? You said this was a low scoring game…

IMG_0104Everybody gets laid!

Wait till I take Mrs. Trumpet to one of these games, she will love it!
