    It's FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 156 and the Rangers are on their way to the Conference Finals. After Bill nailed a Weekly WTF Bold Prediction for a Rangers game 6 win in Carolina, the Panthers finished off the Bruins to set up a New York vs Miami series with a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals on the line. We get you up to date on what else is happening at Madison Square Garden, and some not-so-wholesome-activities at Whole Foods on FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 156!

  • Ep. 155 Friends and Rivals Podcast: Do It To Me Sheldon!

    It's FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 155 and this week the Rangers look to put away Carolina for once and for all while the Devils try to find their next head coach. We talk basketball the way only white people can (poorly) and defend one of the NHL's most beloved players, Brad Marchand. Think of this episode as a four hour shootout with a SWAT team where no one gets hurt. It can only happen on FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 155!

    S4E35 - 1h 2m - May 15, 2024
  • Ep. 154 Friends and Rivals Podcast: Bing-Bong!

    It's FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 154 and join us to travel back in time to the evening of Monday May 6 as we try to talk hockey while the Knicks play game 1 of their series with the Pacers. Did you know that the Pacers were named for the Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500? Yeah, "who cares" is RIGHT! Nick gives the Islanders' season a poetic send-off. Tom glows in the Rangers 5-0 playoff start. Steve and Bill moved on from hockey weeks ago and are just waiting for everyone to shut up about it already on FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 154!

    S4E34 - 1h 11m - May 7, 2024
  • Ep. 153 Friends and Rivals Podcast: How Sweep It Is!

    It's FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 153 and whether you like the Rangers or not, you have to admit that it's good to see the Capitals get a taste of their own medicine. OK OK...if you're specifically a Devils fan, it's not good to see. We know you hate the Rangers with all your might. You hate the Rangers more than you like your own team. That has always been evident. Rest assured, we are ALL rooting against the Rangers in round 2. OK OK...except for the real Rangers fans. We all know you guys come out of the woodwork when your team gets hot, and you're too stupid to understand that your franchise is a punchline. How many Rangers fans does it take to change a lightbulb? Trick question. None of you have money left over for lightbulbs after shelling out $300 per ticket for the last row of the arena for a regular season game against Anaheim as you all pay for The Sphere and for Jimmy Dolan to hang out with his buddies like Harvey Weinstein. Islanders fans? Don't get me started as their season hangs from a thread (like it has for the last 3 months - strong thread!) So check out FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 153!

There's Money Talks and Steve's Stomach, but WTF is the other thing? And if you listen all the way through, there might be some Olive Garden in it for you on FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 152!

    S4E32 - 1h 16m - Apr 22, 2024
  • Ep. 151 Friends and Rivals Podcast: Thank You President Biden!

    It's FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 151 and we have a special Presidential pardon to celebrate the New York Rangers' spectacular regular season. Tom's Rangers seal the deal on their regular season championship, winning the President's Trophy on Monday night. That's good because that's the only banner they will be able to hang at MSG in October since winning that trophy is the kiss of playoff death. Steve eulogizes the actual death of the Devils' season, Nick celebrates the Isles clinching their playoff berth with their mad late season run, and Billy's Penguins hang by a thread that could break before their final game begins. You can cut the tension with a knife, but for the love of god please don't take out any sharp objects while this Penguins season hangs by a thread! Just listen to FRIENDS AND RIVALS EPISODE 151 and think dull thoughts.
