New York Shitty Day Ender: Go Pistons!

Although I had to work today I simply had to swing by and see the Pistons play at their (ostensible) “home field”: McCarren Park. From what little I saw (30 minutes) it was an action-packed game. But before I proceed to the following (mini) slide show I feel compelled to make a couple of disclosures:

  1. I am not really into football. It is not my thing. But that wasn’t the point of the exercise. Rather, I enjoyed seeing these kids having fun and (along with some of my fellow Garden Spotters— and I suspect a few Williamsburgers) wanted to give them a little Greenpoint spirit! On a related note methinks the 7-8 of New York’s Finest stationed around the field had some fun as well.
  2. I am not a very good “sports” photographer by virtue of the previous point. Once again: I am not a “sports” person. At least regarding not the ones which do not involve drinking beer (READ: bowling and pool).

Without further ado, here it is. Enjoy!

As always you can view this slide show in larger format by clicking here. Otherwise you can see a full roster and schedule (!) for the Pistons 2010 season by clicking here.

Go Pistons!

  2. I’m not much of a football fan either. But I really wanted to see this game for the same reasons as you did. I’m glad they got the opportunity to play a home game. Thanks for posting.

  4. The players and their fans were incredibly well behaved. Much more so than some of the “regulars” I see at this park (hence why I avoid it). It makes me wonder why they saw fit to station police officers around the perimeter of the field.

  6. That’s easy. The precinct treats the kids from Automotive like crap. That’s why they don’t respect the cops.

Tell me what you're thinking...
