Unlike the Knicks, “New York’s Team” Takes the Subway to Work
We already know that the New York Rangers’ center Sean Avery loves riding his bike. Now we learn that forward Brendan Shanahan and several other teammate take the subway to the office. From yesterday’s New York Times:
"Still, Shanahan, a 20-year veteran, said he liked the atmosphere in the Rangers’ half of the empire. He likes that they make their news almost exclusively on the ice. He likes that most of his teammates live in the city. He likes riding the subway from his home on the Upper West Side.
"’What other team does that?’ he said, smiling. ‘We’re New York’s team.’"
And what about that other team that plays at the Garden? Apparently, the Knicks’ parking skills are on par with their 6 and 15 record. Here’s a report from the employee parking lot:
"You see a lot of Rolls-Royces down there, big trucks with nice tires and rims on them," Rangers forward Ryan Hollweg said.
As forward Brendan Shanahan added: "The difference is, we’re in parking spaces and they just park anywhere. We actually park in the lines. They just pull up to the door and get out of the car."
