Oh, the Knicks

There was a time when we went to many basketball games.  Now I go very infrequently because honestly the Knicks are not that great although it is a young team so there is hope. 

I love the whole NYC community rah-rah.  Hearing JZ and Alicia Keys belt out Empire State of Mind puts a smile on my face.

I love that the Knicks have a multi-cultural team.  A Russian, an Italian and a Frenchman is pretty cool.  Defines NYC in many ways. 

I do love just going to a game.  There is something about it.

What I don't love is that the games have become pure entertainment vs sporting events.  Granted sporting events have always been entertaining but watching young kids between 8 – 12 perform some dance during all the breaks doesn't really sit right with me. 

What I hate the worst is the Garden.  NYC is one of the most amazing cities in the world so why do we have a crumbling arena?  It is an embarrassment.  Like when we fly back through NYC, we enter JFK which is should be updated into this century immediately.  It is also an embarrassment. 

I do love the game but I really wish it would be more about the game…and they'd do some serious renovation and certainly some better food.
