The Knicks vs. the Suns, at Madison Square Garden

Madison Sq Garden, nyc
Photo by myself in Madison Square Garden, in Midtown.

Just before the New York Knicks game on Sunday, the lights dimmed at Madison Square Garden. Each player's photo flashed on the giant screens near the ceiling to loud, thumping music.

The Knicks played the Phoenix Suns and won, 106-99. It was a steady game as far as basketball goes. The Knicks played well, leading by 10 points or so for most of the game.

Mark and I attended the game with a friend. We had pretty good seats near the corner of the court. I'm not a basketball fan, but I found the experience thrilling. With the half-time show, flashing screens and announcements, it was non-stop action. And of course it was nice that the Knicks won.

I took this photo further down the aisle from our seats. As you can see, a good number of seats were on the floor of the court.

People milled about in front of the stadium before the game. A giant LED screen sits atop the front canopy to announce upcoming events.

I like to see the photos of the event. Must be exciting to be in the stadium and watch the whole "show".

I know what you mean, I don't go to games either but I did get to see Michael Jordan play here years ago & it WAS thrilling! He moved like a Bobcat.
