“Life will life you” it said to me
But why did you have to turn everything off?
Why did you make it so quiet?
“You needed to learn. It all happens for a reason. Never forget that.
Whatever I choose to do, there is a reason for it…one that always helps you grow.”
You only give me as much as I can handle, I know that, I just sometimes wish you didn’t trust me so much.
It hasn’t been easy.
“But remember, the pressure cracks didn’t mean you broke, it means you survived and now have an amazing story to tell.”
Will you help me write these stories?
“Of course. But you already know how.”

Yeah, me too. But if history is any teacher – Rangers win Lord Stanleys Cup only once every 50 years.
BOSTON (CBSNewYork) — Another season is in the books and it’s a familiar story for 31-year-old New York Rangers’ goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.
With each passing year, his window to win an elusive Stanley Cup shrinks. Lundqvist expected this team to go further and spoke of his disappointment after the Rangers were eliminated on Saturday night at TD Garden.
“I expected more from us, and I hoped for more,” Lundqvist said. “Right now, it’s just an empty feeling, and disappointment. Some years you don’t really have a chance to go that far in the playoffs, you just battle hard. I think this year, we had a pretty good team but there were a few games when we didn’t reach our top level. When you play a team like Boston, it’s going to be tough to beat them.”
Lundqvist tweeted the following on his journey back to New York:

Another nobody. Amazing they’re holding onto a .600 winning %. Yanks lead MLB in Medicare recipients!
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Yankees have added left-hander David Huff to the roster and designated outfielder Ben Francisco for assignment.
The moves were announced before Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees are confident Huff can fill multiple roles in their bullpen.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the addition of Huff, who was claimed on waivers from Cleveland on Saturday, gives the team a second lefty in the bullpen and a reliever that can pitch multiple innings.
“I think you can use him a lot of different ways,” Girardi said.
Huff made three relief appearances with the Indians this season, allowing five earned runs in three innings.
“I’m super excited to be here,” Huff said.
Huff started the season at Triple-A Columbus, where he was 3-1 with a 4.07 ERA over nine games, including two starts.
Francisco hit just .114 with one homer and…

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD’s eyes in the sky may be unpopular with some civil rights groups, but a recent poll found New Yorkers overwhelmingly would like to see an expansion of the number of surveillance cameras.
A recent Quinnipiac University poll found 82 percent of New Yorkers want to see the increased use of surveillance cameras in public spaces. The number of black and Hispanic voters polled support extra cameras by an even larger number, according to the poll.
Police commissioner Ray Kelly said he is not surprised by the poll’s findings.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There are many events across the Tri-State Area this weekend to mark Memorial Day.
In College Point, Queens, the annual parade stepped off Sunday afternoon. As WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported, marching bands have been part of the parade since 1898.
The parade featured about 1,000 participants. A World War II veteran who served in Normandy donned his uniform for the Memorial Day Parade, Miller reported.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg marched in the Forest Hills and College Point parades on Sunday.
“It’s a celebration, it’s a celebration of our freedoms but it’s to really remember those who didn’t come home,” Mayor Bloomberg told Miller.
College Point Memorial Parade chairman Don Remiszewski said this year’s parade is without members of the Coast Guard and Navy because Fleet Week was canceled…
