Crazy day sports fans. Big time thanks to the fellas who gave me the late night tip last night about The New York Rangers and Tom Renney and John Tortorella. I am surprised however that the Rangers have a deal with him before they got permission to speak to him.
“Sources say the New York Rangers and John Tortorella have an agreement in place that would make him the next head coach of the NHL team, but that the Tampa Bay Lightning have not yet granted him permission to do so.”
I am very curious to see how the New York media (Larry Brooks) handles that one. I mean we know how he handled the Burke to Toronto thing, everyone knew that was happening eh Larry? Well here there is a deal in place and no permission was ever even asked for- TAMPERING!
Don’t be surprised if the Tororella thing get worked out if he ends up with Brady and Wilbur or Mccown.
On to tonight’s drive home.
