The reign of the NFL is over ... long live HOCKEY ... so says one of the founding member of Run DMC. Darryl McDaniels.
Darryl says he used to be a HUUUGE football fan -- until he saw the NY Rangers play.
Now, he's one of their biggest fans -- and yesterday, the guy was like a ROCK STAR on his way into Madison Square Garden to watch his squad take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.
BTW, the Rangers won the game 2-1.
The Rangers have a bunch of celebrity fans -- including Tom Hanks, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon ... and Sarah Jessica Parker, when she's not too busy.
