Default Cling's Bucketlist just got a little shorter!!!

So I scored some money through school to go to New York to do some work in a couple of archives in Manhattan at the end of this month.
I've always wanted to see a Knicks game at MSG, ever since I was a child.

I spent a few hours on Craigslist yesterday and procured a floor level ticket at a fraction of the cost. It's 5 rows up from the posh seats and he was asking 175 (face value of 500) because its a one-off. Cha ching! I paypaled the ba-jesus out of it.

Sorry, but I'm so pumped. It's the last home game of the season against the Clippers. I'm waiting for the Chris Paul-lob city fever dreams to ensue any day now. I hope there's playoff implications so the joint will be extra cranked.

I'll post pics of me with Spike Lee and Jeremy Lin as they happen.

They say no DSLR cameras on the MSG website, but I saw 10-20 people around me with them. Golden opportunity missed, getting upfront pictures of Bob Delainey's expressions directed at a yelling Doug Collins

Have fun Cling

I'm lucky enough that the only MSG game I've been to was this one:


I couldnt find any full game highlights, but this game was just off the chain. Triple overtime, and it had everything you could ask for in a basketball game. Fastbreak greatness, incredible finishes, point guards at their very best with Steph destroying people off the dribble, and Nash just controlling everything. Then somehow in the overtimes, Eddy Curry found his inner Shaq and scored what seemed like 20 points in the 15 minutes total in OT. David Lee and Channing Frye looking like Amare out there. Just an amazing game and the atmosphere was just insane.

There's a reason I always say I love when the Knicks make the playoffs, because there really is no other atmosphere quite like Madison Square Garden.

If the Raps are good in the near future, I plan on hitting MSG to watch our boys rip a new one in the Knicks.

Have fun Cling. Remember. New Yorkers have guns and dont like us.

I love the organ. It always takes me back to my earliest sports memories.

I can only hope and pray that both of these teams play for something, and don't mail it in. Epic game to be at for sure Thrills.
I too love the organ. Might make it my ringtone forever!

MSG can't be worse than The Palace. I've had coins thrown at me, and beer dumped on me there.
