Larry Brooks’ Silver Lining is in the Shape of a Lightning Bolt


The always cheerful hockey beat writer for the NY Post, Larry Brooks, continued his hot streak of glowing headlines for the Rangers this week. Probably best known for sitting in press row at MSG in full Grim Reaper attire, Brooks has never been shy to say it like it is.  Here's a look back at some of Larry's more memorable opening salvos:

  • Rangers Worthless in Defeat, Life…
  • Rangers Short on Goals, Saves, Souls
  • Rangers' Decline in Sync with my Life
  • Current Crop of Rangers Can Blow Me
  • Rangers a Bunch of Heartless Zombie Assholes
  • Pretty Sure These Rangers are the Undead
  • The TinMan Had More Heart Than These Sorry Fucks
  • Rangers Lack of Soul, Dense Testicles a Growing Concern
  • Emotionally Bankrupt Money Whores Lose 5th Straight
  • Rangers Lacking that Rare… Oh Fuck It, These Assholes Have No God Damn Heart
  • These Rangers Don't Even Have the Balls to Kill Themselves
  • Hey Rangers, Fuck You

    The Rangers would really show him if they would break into their “Temptations versus Four Tops” sing & damce off.

    Wait I guess then you could still argue that they lacked “identity.” I think part of their Existential crisis is that they are the New York RANGERS–and there is not a “range” in New York.
