As far as outtakes that accidentally make their way to air goes, this one is pretty tame. Still, it’s MSG’s John Giannone saying “crapola” a bunch in his attempt to, apparently, deliver the post-game report from tonight’s Rangers win. If you know how this ended up on TV let us know.
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.
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.
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. Callahan was traded to the Lightning in the blockbuster deal that sent Tampa Bay legend Martin St. Louis to New York, which left Fischler…
We've all asked questions about exactly how the courtside seats on Madison Square Garden's Celebrity Row get doled out. Is there a ranking system that determines which celebrities get the best seats? Do those rich people even have to pay for their seats? Thankfully, The New York Times has provided some answers.
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. Actually, they talked about music a whole lot, because that seems to be all James Dolan wants to talk about.
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.
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. Now, New York is finally trying to rectify its mistakes: the city council has given MSG 10 years to vacate the premises.
Frank Isola started on the Knicks beat for the New York Daily News in the fall of 1996, when he was 29 years old. Now, at 46, he has been covering the team longer than anyone else.
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.
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.
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…
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.
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…
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. And also kind of creepy.
This month, Marv Albert celebrated his 70th birthday and joined the NFL on CBS. He announced he would leave his gig calling Nets games for the YES Network—he wouldn't have the time. The CBS job "wasn't something I was looking for," Albert said. Marv, at 70, is sports' most sought-after voice, so much so that he's…
