Attracting New Fans

from the Star-Ledger,
Kevin Weekes wears a mask, but he's not trying to hide anything. The Rangers' new No. 1 goaltender is a black man, and a proud one, at that. And he would love to see a few more black men inside Madison Square Garden when the Rangers return to action after missing last season because of the NHL lockout. "Is Spike Lee only restricted to going to MSG when the Knicks are playing?" Weekes asked recently at the Rangers' Greenburgh, N.Y., practice rink. "I want to see him down on the glass, banging on the glass when we play, too. And he doesn't have to only cheer for me. I want to see him cheer for (Jaromir) Jagr. I want to see him cheer for any of my teammates. Let him cheer for the other goalie. Let him cheer for whoever he wants. Why can't Chris Rock come? Why can't Jay-Z come?"
