Knicks Won Last Night 113-109

The Knicks beat the Utah Jazz last night  113-109 to improve their record to 4-9.  I guess I never discussed my interest in the Knicks in this journal.  I go back with them to the early 1960s when I watched the game on TV with my dad.  As a high school student in the mid 1960s we could purchase Knick tickets at the old 50th Street Madison Square Garden for $1.25.  Back in those days you could even see an NBA doubleheader on Tuesday Nights.  In the early 1970s when cable TV was in its infancy Knick home games were on the MSG Network which could only be seen in parts of Manhattan.  I remember the 7th game of the 1970 championship when our fraternity had an induction dinner in Brooklyn as we listened to the game on radio.

Knick tickets are very expensive these days.  Someone has to pay the multimillion dollar salaries of the players who can't win with any consistency.  In recent years I have only bought tickets to one or two games.  It is $45 for a seat behind the basket in the 300 level of MSG.
