My Opinion

The N.Y. Rangers have reached the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1994 by beating the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 last night at Madison Square Garden winning the series 4-2.Now all the sports talk radio guys,who barely gave hockey a mention during the season,are talking hockey and trying to act like they know what they’re talking about.Well they don’t.Example:Espn radio host Stephen A.Smith,whose expertise is the NBA,was talking about how he’s now rooting for the Rangers and showing them love and the last time they won the Cup was 1994 which is true.If he had stopped there everything would have been fine and hockey fans,including me,would think he knows something.But he didn’t stop there.Trying to show how much knowledge he thinks he has,he then says the time before ’94 was 40 years.Say what? Rangers fans especially, know that it was 54 years between cups because they won in 1940.I remember the taunting chant of 1940-1940.And his partner at espn Ryan Roucco didn’t bother to correct him which makes me think a: he is afraid to correct him or b: he didn’t know either.In any case it just shows when you’re talking about something that’s not your area of expertise,don’t say too much because you will be found out.That’s my opinion.
