Here are some photos from the opening night as well as some detail shots of the art…but there’s a lot more than this. Curated.com also did a nice recap.

MELO IN MANHATTAN

Fellow New York Knick fans:

It is a time to rejoice! Finally, TWO superstars. Not ONE, but TWO! We’ve come a long way haven’t we? From the Shandon Anderson, Howard Eisley, Clarence Weatherspoon fiasco, to the Stephon Marbury goes crazy episodes, we’ve finally done it. A team that we can be FULLY proud of has come home to the “World’s Most Famous Arena.”

We must never forget the dark years, yet we must not dwell upon them. It is a new era for our Knickerbockers, but the build up is not over. One more throne must be filled, for a third must be brought to rule. Is it you, Chris Paul? Is it you, Deron Williams? Is it you, dare I say, Dwight Howard? Whoever it is, be ready, for when you put on that Knick uniform, you better be ready to take on the fans, as well as the rest of the NBA.

It’s up to Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire for now until the third arrives to bring us closer to that wonderful ‘chip. I can’t stand the boo’s anymore, and I’m sure neither can you guys.

Let’s just hope these two scoundrels (James Dolan and Isiah Thomas) don’t go and mess things up again…

look familiar? Look again…

The Dark Side still has a presence around the Garden.

Pound For Pound

Our First Lady, who is clearly in great shape and emphasizes leading a healthy lifestyle, was recently attacked by a man with multiple chins who is quite simply . . . delusional. While vacationing in Colorado, Mrs. Obama partook of some short ribs and according to Rush Limbaugh, that makes her a woman who likes to tell people what to do instead of leading by example. “She’s a hypocrite. Leaders are supposed to be leaders. If we’re supposed to go out and eat nothing, if we’re supposed to eat roots and berries and tree bark, show us how,” he raved.

C’mon, son. Just because the woman promotes consuming fruits and vegetables daily, does not mean she wants you to ONLY eat roots and berries. Everything in moderation with a side of frequent exercise. DUHHHHH!!

Not only did he question her leadership ability, Limbaugh, a pillar of fitness and healthy habits (insert massive eye roll here), damn near called Mrs. Obama fat. According to him she “. . . does not project the image of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you.” As far as I’m concerned, that’s a compliment. No, she doesn’t look a burp away from fatality!! Since when did women ARod dates become a standard for healthy body types anyway?!?!

I’m so over men who wheeze while walking to the rest room telling someone else they’re fat. If, after shaving, you have to delicately lift up folds of skin to make sure there isn’t any stubble left on your chin(s), you might not want to talk about anyone’s dietary choices or body type. Just stop. You look incredibly foolish, Limbaugh. Incredibly. Foolish.
