It’s a great time to be a New York sports fan.
- The New York Rangers move on to the second round of the Division playoffs, defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins.
- The series between the New York Islanders and the Washington Capitals is tied at three apiece. Tomorrow’s game will decide who has the privilege of taking on the Rangers.
- The Brooklyn Nets are only down 2-1 in their series against the Hawks. So they live to fight another day.
- The Mets currently have the best record in baseball. The Yanks are not too shabby either, second place in their division. And this weekend is the subway series.
- And we had a great boxing match on Friday night at the mecca of sport, Madison Square garden, between heavyweights Wladimir Klitschko and Bryant Jennings.
- But in case you hadn’t heard, tickets for the boxing match of the decade (maybe the century?) between Pacquiao and Mayweather didn’t go on sale late last week. The parties finally signed the contract after some disagreements with the allocation of ticket sales. Once the signing took place, the tickets were snapped up in less than 60 seconds.
Oh, and if you’re interested in other parts of the world…
- Congrats to Bayern Munich for capturing its 25th Bundasliga title.
- And Michael Schumaker’s son Mick emerged the winner in his debut F4 race. His father is still recovering from head injuries suffered in a skiing accident.
And that’s the snip!
