Full Thanks to GG!

Like everyone else here, I can't even begin to truly detail how grateful I am to GG. Yeah, I'm gonna try but only he knows the financing and effort it takes to pull this off. And of course he did. He didn't just give me and some others an extra game to go to. He didn't just hook us up with seats that many of us (myself included) wouldn't be able to normally afford. He didn't just give the arena a rabid following to an otherwise lackluster midweek game against inferior competition. Instead he did ALL that and also brought a sense of friendship between fans from many different corners of the Tri-State area with many different ideas on how to better the team we all love.

Well, for one night at least! Some of us would make some trades that others wouldn't. Some like former Nets way more than others. But to joke about that over beers is way more fun than arguing over it on a computer screen. The fact that we could banter in person (while also heckling Big Baby and serenading Brook of course) is what I appreciated most from last night.

This wan't the loudest Nets game I was ever at. That would be Celtics playoffs back in 2002. Wasn't the most nerve wrecking. That would be Indiana during that same year. Wasn't the best played either. The most recent of those was that first game against the Knicks. But it was unquestionably the one where I met the most people. While at the concessions stand before the game one dude game me a "pfffff" look while smirking "Oh, you're J-Sal" but two minutes later we were laughing it up like guys who've known each other for years. Little things like that never would have happened without GG, so many-many-many thank yous!

I'm adding photos below. It's off a cheap point-n-shoot so apologies for the quality. Even so, it's hard to beat that last pic. Glad for the cameo which saved the best for last!
