    100% agree. Fact is, the US public at large suck at geography. They have sucked for decades now and we often (still) place near or dead last among westernized countries. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego came out in response to a survey in the late 80's that 1 in 4 Americans couldn't locate the (then) Soviet Union and/or Pacific Ocean. I loved Geography in school. That and history were my two favorite subjects and I actually got my degree in history (which I don't use) and I like to say I am pretty damn good at geography. I will say that I have used my geography and direction finding skills far more in my life than other skills I learned in school.

    Season-long nagging injury incoming.

    The President's trophy is the one team accomplishment this franchise has yet to capture. We have come close at 2-3 times where we were runners-up, but it has eluded us. I wouldn't mind a banner for it, but I agree with SH that it shouldn't be more than a quick acknowledgement of it for 10-30 seconds and then getting on with it.

    I really don't care for wrestling now but I was plenty into it when I was about 8-13 years old. I hated Ric Flair back then because, well, he was a heel. Now, I watch clips of him and I just love the hell out of that guy. If I could go back in time at my age now to the late 80's/early 90's, I would be a huge Flair fan.

    Apparently Mueller is just taking a maintenance day off. Expected to play on Sunday.

    GDT: Home Opener- Caps @ Devils 10/11 7:00 PM MSG+

    I think the reason for that applause was because of last season's progress and that more fans got to see how he is in the locker room via the Behind the Glass program. He does seem to push the right buttons with this group and Hall has gone out of his way to say he does so. I think aside from getting Hall and Palmieri that getting Hynes is Shero's best "get." I just wonder if he is indeed the coach to get us to the promise land though. Coaches seem to all have expiration dates on them before they start to lose the room. Happens to the best of coaches these days and even ones who win cup(s). However, right now we are not quite at that crossroads yet so I guess I will worry about that later if and when we reach it.

    But overall, fun game to watch. While all of our lines looked great, I still won't make a big deal beating a team who looked completely gassed on the second half of a back to back while starting a goalie who was playing in his 3rd NHL game. Sunday will be a real test. SJ will be more rested and will likely be pissed after losing to NYR last night.

    That's been an issue for some time now. There used to be a spot around sections 131,132, 133 that leaked quite a bit. From what I remember the current owners said years ago that the entire roof was pretty heavily damaged by Sandy and it was never properly repaired. I guess they still got a ways to go but you would have figured they would have fixed it by now.

    FWIW Patty had Hep A. Those who get it usually get that from eating contaminated food (typically with fecal matter). LGD!

    I think the Rangers use Regular season champs in place of President's trophy. I am just shocked about regular season conference banners. I didn't know teams did that, especially teams like Detroit.

    Eh I think that is subjective. I don't particularly care for any of the 4 or so bars right around the arena and outside of that there is not much else to do.

    I understand the Division Champs banner (we have lots of those) and the President's trophy banner (most teams have those), but the Regular season conference champ one has me stumped. That is the first time in my life I have ever seen that being put on a banner by any team in the NHL. Is that even an accomplishment? For conference I have only seen playoff champs. Plus the President's trophy banner makes the other 2 pretty much redundant.

    Don't get me wrong, Newark is definitely better than it was 10 years ago. However it is still way behind other places like JC or Hoboken.

    I think part of the issue is that as much as people like to say Newark has gotten better (and yeah it has), there really isn't a ton to do right around the arena itself. There are 4 bars right next to the arena that are meh at best and that's about it. You can venture out a little further to places like Barcade and Hells Kitchen, but you are blocks away from the arena. Hard to get a big party going on right nearby when there are still limited options right next to the arena and plaza where the fan fest is.
