Madison Square Garden Relentlessly Boos Nick Cannon During Knicks Game

Nick Cannon stopped by the Knicks game on April 2 to film a promo for America's Got Talent, that show where all the contestants sing except for one person who juggles dogs, or whatever. The Madison Square Garden crowd did not appreciate Cannon's presence. » 4/06/14 5:06pm 4/06/14 5:06pm

How Many Times Does Clyde Frazier Say "Dishing and Swishing" Per Game?

From night to night, odds are Clyde Frazier is best thing going during any given Knicks telecast. Swoopin and hoopin may as well run on every graphics package. But is there a method to how Clyde dishes out the Clydeisms? Yes, actually. » 4/01/14 6:13pm 4/01/14 6:13pm

Failed Prediction Forces MSG Hockey Analyst To Eat A Hat On-Air

What we have here is MSG hockey guru and table hockey expert Stan Fischler attempting to make good on a promise that if the New York Rangers traded Ryan Callahan, he'd eat his hat.

Knicks Owner Just Wants To Say Stupid Shit About Music

Knicks owner James Dolan sat down for a Q&A with the New York Post's Mike Vaccaro, and the two men talked about everything from the team to Dolan's lifelong love of music.

James Dolan Is On The Warpath Again

You'd think a team owner would want his new starting power forward to get more than three games under his belt, or wait until the reigning sixth man of the year returned from suspension before storming from his seat to find and berate the GM. But that's not how James Dolan does business. » 11/05/13 9:14am 11/05/13 9:14am

Madison Square Garden Has 10 Years To Get Out

The demolition of the gorgeous old Penn Station in 1963 to make way for the construction of Madison Square Garden remains one of the country's great civic tragedies.

How Frank Isola Became The Most Hated Man At Madison Square Garden

Rangers Rinkside Reporter Takes A Puck To The Face

John Giannone is the man between the benches on MSG, and with time winding down in the second period, the puck found him. He cut open the bridge of his nose, which led to what I believe is a first: a reporter doing a live shot as his own blood pours down his face and into his mouth. He's a hockey guy. » 2/07/13 10:20pm 2/07/13 10:20pm

James Dolan Spent Friday Night Spying On Carmelo Anthony

So Much For The Jeremy Lin Effect: MSG Stock At All-Time High

Shares of $MSG closed the day at 39.39, for a market cap of $2.98 billion. That's an all-time high for the stock, squeaking past the previous high at the beginning of NBA free agency, and blowing past the numbers at the height of Linsanity. This means nothing, but so does everything that came before it. » 8/20/12 4:35pm 8/20/12 4:35pm

MSG Is Going Back On The Air

After seven weeks of dickwaving, Time Warner Cable and the MSG Network have reached a preliminary agreement that will return MSG to the 1.1 million households that have been blacked out. It's tempting to thank Linsanity, but the reality is more prosaic: the sides hammered out a compromise only under pressure from the… » 2/17/12 3:25pm 2/17/12 3:25pm

Dear MSG And Time Warner Cable: Eat A Bag Of Salted Dicks

Linsanity reached a fever pitch last night, and judging from Twitter, all of North America saw it happen. Not me. I can't watch the most exciting thing to happen to the NBA in years, and I can't watch any Knicks games because I live in New York. » 2/15/12 11:05am 2/15/12 11:05am

City Of New York Cancels Mutton-Bustin', Rodeo's Greatest Event

The scores of finance bros and curious onlookers who crowded into Madison Square Garden for the arena's annual dabble in rodeo over the weekend did not get an authentic picture of the tradition. They had overpriced pints of light beer and Cracker Jacks; some, I'm sure, had worn plaid and cowboy hats and taken on… » 1/09/12 3:10pm 1/09/12 3:10pm

Redesigned Madison Square Garden Will Let Bankers Leer At Jocks Through…

Madison Square Garden, lest we forget, is undergoing some celebratory renovations this summer. They're ripping out the purple cushioning and replacing it with — well, probably with more purple cushioning. But the more adventurous redesigns are truly visionary.

Caps Coach Calls MSG Facilities "Horrible," Is Correct

The Washington Capitals were at Madison Square Garden last night for a 3-2 loss to the Rangers, and they'll play again on Wednesday evening.
