Rangers giving away Thunder Sticks for Game 3
I guess the poor economy has finally hit the Rangers. For the past three years, the Rangers have given away rally towels to all fans in attendance for the playoffs. This year they have decided that screen printing 40,000 towels is out of their price range so they decided to buy 20,000 pairs of thunder sticks instead.
Thunder sticks, for those that don’t know, are inflatable tubes which you bang together to make a loud noise. They are very annoying and have no place in a hockey arena.
Honestly MSG, do you think that we as fans are incapable of making the noise ourselves? Do you think we need some sort of aide to make it incredibly loud in our building? Especially with a two games to none lead over Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals?
The worst part of this is that the sponsor is Optimum Lightpath. I get that MSG is owned by Cablevision which owns Optimum, but Lightpath is just too similar to the Islanders Lighthouse Project!
At least they’re going with rally towels for game 4.
