Mad Mike stirs up Rangers/Isles fans, Newsday readers

An excellent way to rile up both Rangers and Islanders fans on a Sunday morning is to quote Mike Milbury in a column.

Here it is.

I couldn't fit all my Mad Mike stuff. Like the fact that in January, the Rangers and Jaromir Jagr declined to make old No. 68 available for an interview with an NBC crew that didn't even include Milbury - apparent payback for Mike's Jagr-bashing.

NBC introduced Milbury to many casual fans Jan. 1 by dredging up the 1979 Madison Square Garden shoe incident. Bob Costas asked him about it, and Mike said the Rangers fan in question "deserved it." He also said if he tried that in this more sensitive era, he might have been suspended for life.
