New York sports fans, on the whole, are not having much fun right now, it’s not all a complete disaster but any feeling of New York sports superiority is completely absent.
The Knicks are without anything that looks remotely like a winning strategy and so of course there is inevitably talk of Woodson walking.
The awful truth is that neither Woodson nor Anthony as their star player appear to have any answers to the kind of non performance of their last game. Pathetic about sums it up.
In the last round the Nets lost too, but it had a completely different feel to the Knicks loss. Everyone on the team was putting in effort, but the smooth play of previous winning games wasn’t there this time. But hopefully it will be because this team has so much talent.
Giants have salvaged New York’s sports pride with a 24-20 win over the Raiders, nothing spectacular except for a brilliant interception from Terrell Thomas but the team got the job done and now they are a much more healthy 6-3.
Jets are till riding high after beating New Orleans and are on a bye week before their next game Nov 17. The Jets currently have 5 wins and 7 games to go. Playoffs possible, we hope so.
New York sports fandom is a wearying process of up and down, despair, elation, disappointment and desperate hope. We would all like some more sustained elation right now guys. LIKE New York sports teams winning.
