Sale Update

I stopped by the Garden on my way to work this morning. They seemed to be selling a lot of the same stuff that they had at the sale earlier this summer. Prices were about the same for shirts and hats (five bucks a pop) but jerseys were just $40. Of course, they had a ton of Scott Gomez and Petr Prucha sweaters but there were also a few Markus Naslund, Jaromir Jagr, Kevin Weekes (??) and Michal Rozsival.

Personally I was considering getting a Gomez and taking it to another place to have the named swapped for Bettsy but in the end I went with a Rozy. He may, may actually be on the team this fall so what the hell, call it a leap of faith. Worse comes to worse, I always liked James Patrick ...

Man, that is a great bargain!

I would have totally bought two or three to restitch.

I would definitley get one stitched with "Sather Sucks!" on the back...

Callahan would be a good one as well.

You got a Rozy jersey? Wow, that is a leap! If I would have told you last year, this time, that you'd be buying a Rozy jersey, you would have told me I was insane.

An old Dawes jersey would have been a useful restitch for my Tikkanen/Gaborik dilemma.

Similarly, at the first game last year, they were selling Avery jersies like they had the plague on them. I'm glad I chose to support Sean even in his absence. Now I have a jersey of a current ranger that cost me about $40. With all the other money I spent in that place...they still came out on top.

Great sale, one problem.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a reasonably sized jersey if you're not XL? Or a Gomez fan...

However, some of the tshirts were hilarious. Picked up a "If I have to explain it, you just don't get it. I am a Ranger" tshirt.

A Rozsival jersey?? But why

Scotty Hockey said...

At the least, I am a mush when it comes to current Rangers (poor Jed) so perhaps it will finally bring karma around and kick Rozy out of the Ranger lineup...

And Pete, you are absolutely right, I would never, ever have thought it.

If you want Scotty, I have an XL Gomez in blue (CCM, too!!!) that you're welcome to grab cheap from me and re-stitch it to Betts if you want. Went unsold on Ebay already.

Sammael said...

Man, I've been lucky so far...
I bought an Avery jersey the first time around... somehow I knew he was coming back, just seemed right.

Also have Dubinsky and Drury. I got Dubi and Dru for about 100 a piece. Not too bad.

First I got a Lindros, then a Prucha, then an Orr --- not much luck lol

But, I'll still wear the Orr & Prucha ones to MSG

i got an authentic zherdev last year....doh!!

Brian said...

restitching? i never thought of that...how much does that stuff cost?...and where do you get it done? i've got an old barnaby jersey, yes barnaby, lying around...i'm debating whether or not i should get that taken care of...

Puck Central said...

I just had an idea, since every NYR jersey I get results in the player getting traded away a short period of time later....maybe I should buy a Redden jersey lol

Scotty Hockey said...

NYR, thanks for the offer but I am done buying jerseys for the moment. Gotta save up some cash ...

Samm - I did the same - got an Avery when he left. At the time I figured he could never screw up his legacy of hard work, appreciation for the fans and winning. And now he is back and doing it all over again. Go Sean!

PC - I saw a kid in the Garden with a Redden jersey. Luckily, the girl I was seeing at the time stopped me from physically ripping it off his body.

And Brian - I would keep Barnaby! Loved him and he is a helluva nice guy. But if you want to get it re-stitched, a lot of places do it. Cosby';s charges an arm and a leg and I believe there is a place in Queens - check the All things jerseys threat over at the Ranger forum at HFBoards ...

Brian said...

thanks! yeah, i might keep it..just b/c i loved him too! i'll def. check out those forums.
