Its no secret that The Generalissimo has no patience for the little swarthy people. And trust me, there are millions of them in NYC. But The Generalissimo is talking specifically about the reporters that covers his team. Larry Brooks in the NY Post has an article today that demonstrates The Generalissimo’s reasons perfectly. The Generalissimo was on his way to Michael’s for a post game filet and cigar, and Brooks accosted The Generalissimo in the hallway. [BTW – why am I paying Barney to be at my side at all time if he’s not providing me with security? His coffee isn’t that good.] Here’s what Brooks wrote:
When it was over, when the staggering Blueshirts lost for the 10th time in their last 12 games (2-7-3), Glen Sather talked for a moment to The Post, though the GM had very little to say. “I can’t give you a lot of insight right now,” Sather said in the runway leading to the ice when asked for his take on his team. “There’s not much I can tell you.”
Don’t be fooled, people. Here’s the FULL quote I gave him, with the parts he conveniently left out in bold.
“I can’t give you a lot of insight right now, because I’ve been on vacation at my ski chalet in Lugano for 3 weeks. There’s not much I can tell you now because my driver is double-parked.
More from Brooks:
Sather was asked whether coach Tom Renney’s job is safe, whether the head coach who has taken the Blueshirts to the playoffs in each of his three full seasons behind the bench, would be on the ice for the club’s next practice session. “I’m not going to get into that. You know that,” the general manager told The Post. “I’m not going to talk about that at all.”
“I’m not going to get into that, because I haven’t spoken to Renney-ey since christmas. You know that I spend January in Fiji, and the reception there is crap, but I’m not going to talk about that at all.”
Sather similarly deflected a question about his intentions regarding Sean Avery, who remains in Hartford on loan from Dallas. “Sean is another team’s property,” Sather said before bobbing and weaving when asked when and if he would ask the Stars to place the winger on re-entry waivers so the Rangers could claim him. “It’s more complicated than that,” Sather said. “There are cap issues. There might be other things going on that no one knows about.”
“Sean is another team’s property, and I’m waiting for Jimmy to pay the check to Bettman to get that taken care of. I have pull with the league that you could only dream about. But it’s more complicated than that now…apparently there are cap issues these days. Schoeney told me its been thay way for years…so who knows…there might be other things going on that The Generalissimo doesn’t even know about! Now stop asking me for spare change…that nickel is really all I have for you.”
Everyone knows you can’t believe eveyrthing you read in the papers, and now, with the internets, there’s almost nothing stopping someone from printing full out falsehoods. Luckily, for you, The Generalissimo’s loyal followers, I am here to set the record straight. Now, excuse me, The Generalissimo is late for his mani/pedi appointment.
