Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.

RIP, MSG press room

After 43 years of service, Madison Square Garden's John F.X. Condon Press Room will close its doors for good following Thursday night's Rangers game.

Generations of New York sports journalists have produced countless millions of words in the sixth-room room while consuming countless gallons of coffee and whining to colleagues about clueless editors.

I have been doing so since the mid-1980s.

The room will be gutted as part of the massive, ongoing renovation of the facility.

For the rest of this winter sports season, reporters will use a temporary area on the third floor. By autumn, a new press room is expected to open on the fifth floor.
