BlueLINES for BlueSHIRTS! August 12 – Thank God It’s Friday

If I’m expressing how awesome it is that the week is over then you know it’s been slow. For an update, I saw my first Mets game at Citi Field yesterday and I must say, it is a gorgeous park. The Jackie Robinson rotunda is nice but leaves a lot to be desired as a Mets fans. Walking around the pavilions I got the feeling of being on a boardwalk, taking in all the games & food at my disposal.  It’s spacious and at the same time comforting. For a franchise that’s had questionable decision-making and horrible collapses, at least they got their new stadium right.

But I digress; follow after the jump for your Rangers headlines for today.

It’s jersey day! And no, I don’t mean JERZday. I mean intelligent things that actually matter. Like the Rangers jersey:
