    This thread is for all those fans of teams from the New York metropolitan area. Right now the Rangers and the Knicks are in the playoffs together for the first time since 1997, the Yankees and the Mets are in the beginning of their 2011 campaigns, the Devils, Islanders and Nets are/will be sitting home watching TV and the Giants and Jets are wondering if they will even be playing next year.

    I myself am a Giants, Knicks, Mets and Rangers fan (in a related note, I'm from New York and like the color blue). I'm still celebrating the 2008 title and all of my teams seem to have a good future awaiting them (as a Mets fan, things can only go up...right?) or at least somewhat competitive.

    And yes the thread title is from the SNY slogan :p

    Oh yeah and discuss college sports here too if you want.

    Unfortunately, I have DISH network and they are in a contract struggle with both MSG and SNY, so I don't get my NY sports. I need my Mets, Rangers, and Knicks, nd with the lockout I may not get my Jets. :(

    I'm a Yankees fan from Toronto, does that count? :p

    BTW I was in NYC this past weekend and went to the Rangers/Devils game on Saturday afternoon, my first time in MSG. Awesome experience! I went to Yankee stadum last September and saw a Jays/Yankees game which was also a lot of fun. :D

    So in the past two days the Knicks have blown a 10 point lead against the Celtics and the Rangers blew a 3-0 lead against the Capitals. Add this to the Giants meltdown vs the Eagles and me being a Mets fan and I'm not a very happy camper right now. :(

    Oh well, time to pop in my Super Bowl DVD!

    Yes, not a good week for NYC. At least the Yanks are in first place. :D

    Remembered that I created this thread a long time ago in a galaxy far far away

    So the Rangers make it back the Eastern Conference Finals again, with a chance to go to their first Stanley Cup finals (and championship) in 20 years.

    At the same time, the Mets are about to take both games of this mini Subway series against the Yankees.

    Are y'all Net's fans as well?

    Why did they move from Jersey, to Brooklyn?

    Would you want to be in Jersey?

    PS - the Mets suck!

    Looking forward to the new NYFC MLS team too. The only thing that could change that would be an Andy Carroll signing.

    Go Yanks, Go Blueshirts.

    I should probably update this more than once a month :p

    So anyway the Rangers lost as you all know, but baseball season is going on strong though both New York teams aren't doing that great (particularly my Mets). Basketball doesn't look that good with the rumors of Melo going to the Heat. If he goes to the Heat I probably won't watch basketball next year.

    I really miss having the MLB Extra Innings package, as I always made it a point to watch as many Mets games (well, large portions of Mets games) as I could due to the excellence of the Cohen/Hernandez/Darling trio.

    I swore off of them after Red Bull renamed them. I loved the Metrostars.

    I hate when sports teams lack a nickname. /amerisports
