Monday marked the 51st Anniversary since the Rangers played their final game at the Old Madison Square Garden. Here’s a classic photo of that night.
I’ve always marveled at how old pictures are always better. This action shot above is a perfect example of that. It’s wonderfully captured. There’s definitely something unique about the classic photograph from the past. It’s art.
I often wonder what it would be like if the Rangers still had their own arena to play in. Would it be a better home advantage? Instead, they share MSG with the woeful Knicks. The Garden has so many big events. From concerts to prize fighting to other shows, they’re always busy. I guess it would be cool to have just a hockey arena revolving around the one franchise that’s delivered a championship since I’ve been alive. Even if it has been 25 years, at least we got 1994.
