So yesterday afternoon a friend of mine called me up and told me he just got hooked up with amazing Knick tickets through some work connection or something. Told me the seats were on the floor!! So I headed out the door last night to see some Knickbocker action! Turned out to be a great game! Double overtime with a Knick win by tap with 1/10 of a second on the clock! Here's the story with that.
It's way coolio sitting all super up close at the Garden! Waitresses come take your order! I got a hot dog and a knish and drank two beers! And I took lots of pictures! (I didn't have my camera out of the last second tap but whatever. I got some video from my camera too!)
Thanks to my friend who got the tickets! Look at these things!
COUGH! $330! PER TICKET! It's not like we had to pay for them or anything but somebody somewhere did! Who has $330 for a ticket!? One ticket! To a basketball game! That's a friggin plane ticket! $330!!!?!? WTF!!! How much money do some people have?! umm.. I guess a whole lot...
Anyway, here's a bunch of pictures and stuff:
On the way there there was a brass band playing infront of the Circuit City. They were awesome...
First a tuba dude. (I assume that's a tuba.) Now on to the game!

Don't their shoes scuff the court up or something? I wonder if the guy who waxes the floors rolls his eyes when he sees the heels come out.
Oh there's the guy from MSG talking to someone... I wonder who he's talking to...
ONLY THE GREATEST ATHLETE EVER!!! SITTING FOUR ROWS UP FROM ME!! HE WAS RIGHT THERE! I COULD HAVE THROWN MY BEER ALL OVER HIM IF I WANTED!!! OR BONKED MY KNISH OFF HIS HEAD! WITH MUSTARD!
After it was announced that Jordan was at the game everyone was looking over our way...
Bad picture-- but that guy in the #3 shirt is a fan who just hit a 3-pointer for $10,000. Swish too. He went nuts. Pounding his chest and stuff. The crowd was psyched.
Knicks City Dancers slingshotting shirts into the audience!
Nobody move! I lost a contact! Time out! Time out!
John Starks in the hizzouse!
After the half, Jordan moved his seat to the other side of the court. He has a stake in the Bobcats and wanted to be under their hoop for the whole game. He sits where he wants. I asked my friend what would happen if Michael asked for a lobster. We decided someone would run out and get him a lobster. Literally run too...
Foul Shot. Man, these dudes are so big up close! They're like giant freaks!
More butt shaking to pass the time!
Not sure what this move was about...
The Bobcats had weird shorts. Like they're wearing a thong or something. Gotta check into that, Mike...
There's Walt Frazier!
(Note the bra (or bro) look on the backs of the Bobcats in the back too! What's up with their girliewear?! No offense Charlotte-- but seriously...)
ok that's it for now!
