Basketball is big...as usual

On a warm Friday afternoon, basketball players were out early in St. Vartan's Park at the foot of Murray Hill...as I predicted, the courts were jammed by early nightfall, with a lot of little kids out playing too, --basketball is always popular in this park, but I think there has been an added impetus lately in the revival made by the New York Knicks and Jeremy Lin.
Shame coach D'Antoni was forced to resign, but the Knicks are still hanging in there and it has been so long since New York has had anything like a winning basketball team that it has generated a lot of excitement...in a time when people are sort of desperately looking for good news in any form!
