The following actually happened

My wife and I are in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  We went to the big shopping center to buy a gift for our son.  We found an interesting shirt in a shop.  I walked out the door for a minute and when I returned my wife said to the two guys behind the counter, tell him them who your favorite team is.

"New Jersey Nets," they both said.  One said the Lakers are his favorite NBA team, but the Nets are his "second most favorite".  The other said the Nets were his favorite team.  As we were leaving the store, I asked my wife how did THAT happen.  She said they asked her where she lived in the US and when she responded, "New Jersey," they got excited and said, "New Jersey Nets!"

So maybe that Prokhorov plan to make the Nets the global team ain't so crazy.   (FYI, we are staying in the "Brooklin" neighborhood in Sao Paulo...really.)
