NYR/PIT 3/12 Pictorial Review, Live from Pittsburgh, PA

Once again, the Rangers looked disjointed, and as they were on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh, during their 3-2 overtime loss.

Greetings and salutations everyone and welcome to another blog here on BlueCollarBlueShirts.com. I am about to take a nap!

As I wrap-up my Rangers’ weekend, and with an early Monday morning flight ahead; for tonight’s blog, I’m just going to post the 200+ photos that I took during my brief stay in Pittsburgh, PA.

I have a lot to say about both the game and the team themselves – and I’ll get into all of that sometime Monday afternoon, once returned home.

Aside from sharing these pics with you as a way to give you an idea of what my trip and the PPG Arena was like; personally, by uploading these photos, it also allows me to put all of them on my server – and for bad custom-made photoshops in the future!

Big blog tomorrow, but for now, enjoy this photo gallery – where again – due to my crappy little laptop – these pictures appear in an inverse order:

Again – back tomorrow night, when I’m back home myself.

You won’t want to miss it – as I have a ton of thoughts, stories and information to relay to you – and where my “glass half-full” perspective is being tested!

And I know I have about 99 emails to answer from you guys & gals – and I’ll try to get to those too. I just can’t do it tonight on this slow laptop.
