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!

East Williamsburg Photos Du Jour: Conselyea Street

After I took the above photograph (at 2:55 p.m., five minutes before game time) the man responsible for this display said:

Hurry up, I need to take this down! I do not want to jinx anything.

So hurry I did.

One cannot help but admire this level of dedication.

I hope this post doesn’t jinx the game either. Not because I am a big football fan (frankly I could care less): rather my gut instinct tells me I do not want this chap angry at me if they lose!

UPDATE, 6:20 p.m.: Shortly after this post was published the game reversed in favor of the Colts. The Jets lost. 30 to 17. Whoops.
