HBO 24/7 Preview This Friday. Will We Hear Sather Speak?November 22, 2011, by
The HBO cameras and microphones were back at practice today and the word is they’ll be around when the Rangers host the Flyers, Saturday.
Here’s the rest of that schedule:

Nov. 26 (12:00 p.m.) Dec. 8 (1:15 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.)
Nov. 29 (12:30 p.m. and 4:05 a.m.) Dec. 11 (8:15 a.m.)
Dec. 2 (9:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m.) Dec. 15 (6:15 a.m. and 9:45 p.m.)
Dec. 4 (9:00 a.m.)
Dec. 6 (8:15 p.m.)
Dec. 9 (2:30 p.m.)
Dec. 12 (5:15 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.)
Dec. 14 (7:00 p.m.)
I, like the rest of this fanbase, am super excited for this program. However, like I said over the summer when all of this was announced, I am hoping Sather opens up a little bit to the cameras. I mean the guy has been the Rangers GM for over a decade and we still don’t know him any better than we did the day he got here. This has not helped his public persona one iota.
Whether or not this is because of Dolan’s strict media policy or because Sather doesn’t like to reveal himself is unclear. But 24/7 provides an opportunity not only to give you a glimpse into the lives of the players, but also into the front office.
I know when it comes to divulging information about the team he and Torts like to play things close-to-the-vest, but there can be a balance. Hopefully this program will shed some light on the “man behind the curtain.”
