the world’s most famous arena

while i was in new york, my co-workers took me to see a knicks game, at the world’s most famous arena, madison square garden.

Madison Square Garden


unfortunately, the knicks opponent that night was the preinially woeful charlotte bobcats, but after 2 years without any live nba basketball, it was great to go to a game in person.

i will say this, knicks fans really know their basketball (as a contrast to rockets fans or lakers/clippers fans). in fact, i’d say that the warrior fans and knicks fans were the most basketball knowledgable crowds i’ve ever been priviliaged enough to watch a game with.

the second most notable thing was their love for danilo gallenari – everyone was shouting “shoot it gallo!” everytime the italian forward had it behind the arc. it was an arena wide man-crush. he obliged with two key 3 pointers down the stretch as the knicks prevailed over the bobcats.

    If this were a food blog, maybe I’d say something.

    World’s most famous arena? surely it’s not as famous as Wembley?

    Anyway, come on T, you must have had one of those “hot dogs” or “hamburgers” I keep hearing Americans talking about?

    That’s what they say in the marketing. Madison Square Garden – the World’s Most Famous Arena. I believe they’re defining arena as an enclosed, covered space though.

    Otherwise, it’s probably R?ngrado May First Stadium, no?
