What’s up everyone and welcome to another blog here on BlueCollarBlueShirts.com.

The blog is BlueCollarBlueShirts.com, the only blog of its kind and the only place where there isn’t rainbow and gumdrops talk when the name Henrik Lundqvist is mentioned! The Rangers got embarrassed, 7-2, in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. To me, this was the second worst loss of […]

What’s up everyone and welcome to another blog here on BlueCollarBlueShirts.com.

What’s up everyone and welcome to the first of two blogs here, on BlueCollarBlueShirts.com, on this fine lovely Monday morning.

Note: I have probably used the “f-word” more times in this blog than any other blog I’ve ever written. If that offends you, I apologize, but sometimes the “f-word” is needed for emphasis. Plus it’s a free blog and one fan venting! That said, I’m aware of it, and will tone it down in the […]
