Sports ~ Brooklyn Nets & Barclays Center Debut Nearing ~ Brooklyn’s Sister City
Brooklyn’s last home game before losing the Dodgers to nicer weather, was in 1957 & also the 8th All-Star game for Brooklyn Dodger legend, Gil Hodges.I wonder if Gil Hodges’ wife, Joan, (still a BK resident) has a date for the opener. I would be greatly honored to escort her.
Brooklyn’s recent population rise with more Manhattanites making the move over the bridge to the home of hipsters young & old, will make for generations of loyal season ticket holders.The Nets and Marti’s wife should have all homework done by tip off.
“Every day a star is born. Clap for him, clap for him.”Barbara Streisand & Justin Bieber are set to perform at Barclay’s, maybe there will be a battle of the bands with Knicks owner James Dolan vs. Jay-Z.
Ashley Patterson loves the Blazers, has ‘Rip City’ on her twitter bio & is cruising the streets of the other Brooklyn, a neighborhood in Portland that’s 5 miles away from the Blazers’ Rose Garden.I want to make the first trade in Brooklyn Nets history. I’m offering Portland’s Bill Walton straight up for a spot on the waiting list.
