Oh, the Knicks
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.
