I went to the Knicks game last night and…you know, whatever. I can’t get into any sport other than baseball, but I’m still glad I went. I’d gotten a free ticket, and the person who gave it to me is a new friend (from my writing group) named Laurie. Mainly, I was just looking forward to spending some time with her.
This was our view during the national anthem:
This was the view of my water bottle after the concession lady insisted on removing the cap:
Such stupidity. I was never even checked by security when I walked into the Garden, and yet my effin’ bottle cap had to be removed. I truly don’t get it. But anyway, here’s a semi-crappy photo of some guy on the Timberwolves getting ready to shoot a free throw:
I have no idea who it was. I actually hadn’t heard of ANY of the players on the Timberwolves, but I came prepared with rosters:
I mainly used the rosters to check and see how tall the players are. I love tall people
. I’d only heard of two players on the Knicks: Amar’e Stoudemire and Eddy Curry, and I don’t think Curry played.
Here’s a closeup of the scoreboard (or whatever they call it in basketball) during the closing seconds:
The T’wolves scored two points right after I took this photo, so the Knicks ended up winning, 121-114.
Here I am a bit closer to the court after the game…
…and here I am with Laurie:
I try so hard not to think about baseball during the colder months. (Don’t let the MLB cap fool you.) All I want to do is get as far away from the sport as possible so I can relax and be social, but this basketball game really made me miss it.
