In hockey, even the media members are tough. John Giannone, a reporter for the Rangers on MSG, took a puck to the face during Thursday’s Rangers-Islanders game. Marc Staal of the Rangers lifted the puck off the ice and into the tiny booth which Giannone resides during games. It left Giannone with a cut that required medical attention, but he stayed at his post and continued to work while blood poured down his face. No hockey player would have ever respected him if he had left the game.
Mason was the Knicks in the 90’s.
Also, he’s had three straight triple-doubles.
