We always thought Mark Messier was a mensch, but seeing footage from his press conference last night - the prelude to tonight's game where his number will be retired and his jersey will float to the rafters of Madison Square Garden - was a little disconcerting. He turned into a blubbering, well, mess. Gothamist has nothing against men showing they are vulnerable, but when we think of Messier, we think about his Cro-Magnon skull and his Game 6 promise during the playoffs with the NJ Devils. At least he had a hankie.
