Carmelo's 62 Will Always Be Ours

Credit: USA Today - Sports

"62?!!" 

That was my response when one of my student-workers told me the news of what Carmelo had done last night. We were watching the Universty's men's team finish their game against a conference opponent, and we anticipated the long night as we transformed our athletic facility from a basketball set up to hold over 2,000 people into a set-up for a fencing tournament the next day. 

I knew going in it was going to be a long night. I knew I was going to miss my beloved Knicks. I figured with their recent play, maybe it wasn't such a bad idea that I took a break from them.

Ha Ha, Kobe! We got the record back as well!

Then Carmelo decided to go bonkers. 62 points! 

I missed history. Well at least live. I returned home at 2:00am, box of pizza in hand (took one from the many we ordered for our staff and student workers) and sat on the couch to see this bit of Knicks history that I missed. Damn fencing. I'll probably hate it even more now. Regardless, I watched the replay from 2am to 4:30am. Thank you DVR, and another thank you to MSG for replaying it. 

Jees, imagine if these two played together?

That game was special. That game was just so much fun. That game was freakin' amazing! 

It felt good again to have a Knicks player have that "Garden Moment".

Even better was having Patrick Ewing in the house to embrace Melo after the game. 

Carmelo may leave for a new team next year. Heck, we may even stink for the rest of the year and the near future. But this game, "the 62 game", will always be Carmelo's and will always be ours.

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"
