No boarding penalty on Stamkos, no tripping right in front of the goalie/referee after the little whiner tried to get some payback after he was checked down, but THAT was interference?  Come on.  They both skated to the same spot and got tangled up.

Yeah, it seems nobody knows how Staten Island became a "borough" of NYC. LOL

I've never been there, but the last I've heard is that Brooklyn (NYC borough) is on the western most portion of Long Island.

That is correct. Technically, Manhattan is an island as well, hence why you have to take the tunnels, bridges, or ferries over.  

Go North and you find yourself in the Bronx, further north into Westchester County, and then into CT.

Go South and you hit Brooklyn.  West would lead you to Staten Island (GTA III, for those of you gamers). Go East and you hit Queens, then Nassau/Suffolk County, which is considered "Long Island".

The boroughs of NYC are DEFINITELY unique - I dispatch elevator technicians throughout the region and it's always funny how someone who lives/grew up in a particular borough talks badly about the people of the other areas.  


Manhattanites are the demanding, rude people.

Bronxites are the tough, old ghetto folk.
Brooklynites are the wannabe gangsters.

Queenies are the boring, sissified people.

Staten Islanders aren't true NYC folk.

Bronx has a bunch of shopping areas/hospitals.
Manhattan has a bunch of hotels/corporate buildings.
Brooklyn has a bunch of churches/housing complexes.
Queens has a giant-ass airport.
Staten Island has nobody-cares-what's-on-that-island.

These are true stereotypes lol.

Very good article. Insightful, yet well-written.  I like how he was modest and human, showing he too is not some robotic goon without feelings or a brain.
