In brighter news Brent Hunsberger gives us this article on the simultaneous increase, yet availability, of tickets.
And by the way a little bird told me that Blazersedge Night at the Garden will probably also be Greg Oden Bobblehead night. Bonus to all who are going. We will have an official announcement about how many kids we helped tomorrow morning.
