As it stands now, the New York Rangers are up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Montreal Canadiens. They’re just two wins away from advancing to the Stanley Cup. For all of you who were old enough to appreciate the 1993-1994 Stanley Cup Rangers, here’s a trip down memory lane as the champs take “The Cup” to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

Michael Jordan’s brand and Nike and have teamed up to launch the “RE2PECT” campaign in honor of Derek’s last season.
“After 19 seasons, Derek Jeter announced in February that the 2014 season will be his last. Widely recognized as one of the greatest ball players of all time, Jeter has led a storied and decorated career, with five championships, 13 All-Star appearances and enough individual awards to fill numerous trophy cases.
Although Jeter has become synonymous with his team over the past two decades, he transcends traditional rivalries and team loyalties. While No. 2 is known for his brilliant on-field performances, he’s always matched that with a quiet confidence, relentless focus, and deep respect for those he competes against.To celebrate Jeter, the mark he’s left on the game, and his relationship with the brand, the Jordan Brand kicks off the RE2PECT campaign. Baseball fans around the world can participate and share their support for Jeter throughout the season by tagging social media posts with #RE2PECT.
Jeter—handpicked by Michael Jordan in 1999—was the first Jordan Brand-endorsed baseball athlete. Outside of Jordan himself, Jeter is the longest-tenured signature athlete for the brand, and has been a great example to subsequent members of the Jordan Brand family.
“Derek is everything we hope for in a member of the Jordan Brand family,” said Jordan. “He’s the ultimate professional, dedicated to hard work, and driven by a desire to be the best. In short, he embodies all the key attributes of the brand.”
At the beginning of the partnership, Jeter was a rising star, and the Jordan Brand, which became a wholly owned subsidiary of Nike in 1997, was on a similar trajectory to establish itself as a major player in the world of sport. There were only a small handful of athletes associated with the brand, and Jordan stressed that his vision was to select a group of athletes comprising what the brand now describes as “the family.”
“We want there to be a mystique connected to being part of the Jordan Brand,”Jordan said. “Not something everybody will be involved with.”Today, although the family has grown, it maintains the same close-knit feeling Jordan envisioned when the brand was in its early days.”

One source told us: “Derek likes to keep his relationships quiet. In the past, when his girlfriends become famous and start doing sexy shoots, that’s when they break up. Exactly the same thing happened with Minka and Vanessa Minnillo.”
Another source said, “Derek and Hannah broke up a few months ago. She wasn’t at his Celebrity Golf Classic last month. He is in Tampa and is completely focused on being fit and ready for the upcoming baseball season.”
So, Derek Jeter doesn’t like his girlfriends to get “too famous.” That’s understandable. But why date some of the biggest and brightest of them all? Yeah, we get it…Hannah Davis is gorgeous. But if he wants to take his relationship to the next level..maybe he should stop going after the biggest Hollywood stars. Let’s take a trip down memory lane: Minka Kelly, Lara Dutta, Rachel Uchitel, Mariah Carey, Vida Guerra, Vanessa Minnillo, Jordana Brewster, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Adriana Lima, Joy Enriquez, Scarlett Johansson, Tyra Banks and Gabrielle Union.
Hannah might very well be announced as the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model in the issue coming weeks…not that Jeter cares. I’m sure he won’t have trouble finding another lady friend. Good luck, Derek.

The 2014 NHL Coors Light Stadium Series is coming up at the end of the month, and it looks like Henrik Lundqvist will be making a new fashion statement. On the right side of his new mask, Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig are pictured. It’s only fitting because the two games will take place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. It looks as if Henrik’s custom crown logo (from the Crown Collection) will be on the front of the mask.
Update: 7:00PM ET: Here is a full shot of the complete mask in all it’s glory:
The Henrik Lundqvist Blog also pointed out some interesting pinstriped goalie pads (made by Bauer) that he might be using in the upcoming series. This isn’t set in stone, but these could be the pads he wears:

According to this intelligent Red Sox fan, A-Rod is a “Looser.” He even went as far to draw eyeballs inside the two o’s. Now, that takes guts.

With all the drama and news surrounding Alex Rodriguez, it doesn’t come to much of a surprise to see him don the latest cover of Sports Illustrated. It’s hard to tune into a television station these days that doesn’t mention his name. Major League Baseball is set to lay the hammer down on A-Rod and make him serve a suspension immediately. Apparently, Alex’s people and MLB are currently in talks to avoid a lifetime ban from the sport.

The New Yorker’s own, Christopher Weyant, released a daily cartoon a couple of days ago (the day after the tragic Boston Marathon bombings), and I thought I would share it with you guys. I found the cartoon to be very charming, showing that when something like this happens, we put our petty differences and fan allegiances aside. The tragic events that occured in Boston transcend sports, and it was just really cool to see the outpouring of love from New York. #BostonStrong

It’s just amazing how these stories come about. One can simply release a doctored photo of the Yankees captain to the media and everybody eats it up. Did anyone actually believe that “The Derek Jeter” would lose himself like that? If there is one guy in this league who you can count on to act in a professional way, he would be the one. If you really believed that photo was real, I wouldn’t be placing any bets anytime soon. But if you knew from the get-go, I would go hop on over to The Sports Geek. It took Harold Reynolds to set the record straight once and for all with this photo:
