Quite A Day

Please forgive the NY sportsfan in your life if he or she seems distracted today, but today is going to be a very busy day.  

It will all start at 12pm when the final four rounds of the NFL Draft start.  While these may not be the glamorous rounds, the Giants have shown how they are vital to winning championships. (More on the Giants Draft Monday)

At 3pm, the Rangers open their second round series versus Washington. Not that they needed any extra motivation, but the Caps have sent them home in two of the last three seasons. My pick is Rangers in six.

At 3:30pm the Knicks open their playoffs with a game in Miami.  For the first time probably ever, most of the U.S. will be rooting for New York. Unfortunately, that won’t get it done and I predict the Heat win in 5.  But, since the Knicks haven’t won a playoff game in 11 years that would represent progress.  (I am going to throw up now.)

At 4pm we have the Yankees and Tigers starting. Luckily, the Yankees have taken note of the two playoff games and decided to start Freddy Garcia to make sure fans can watch the Knicks and Rangers. 

And if you need a nightcap, the Mets are on a 8:10 vs. Colorado.  

This will be a fun one.

    with the game 1 win, the Rangers established themselves as the team to beat in the east.

      I wish I shared your optimism. It’s a long slog these playoffs, still need seven wins to even get out of the East.
