Default I Was There!

I attended the 2/2/09, NY knicks vs LA Lakers game played at Madison Square Garden. Kobe Bryant scored 61 pts that night, breaking the record for most pts scored by a player in a basketball game at the garden. I saved the ticket and had it slabbed. It just happened to be the Knicks 24th home game (K24), Kobe's initials and jersey # is on the ticket.

I saved the Daily News coverage of the game, and a short time later pulled an "Exquisite Collection" #/10 inscription card. It is inscribed by Kobe and Lebron referencing points scored. Lebron played the Knicks at the Garden two days after Kobe, scoring 52pts.

Default Great Concert Memories

Grew up in Chicago and saw so many great shows in the late 60s and early 70s and remember seeing things like: Deep Purple back up Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder backup the Rolling Stones, Uriah Heep trash the sound system before T-Rex could take the stage, and a young piano player who was in the middle of his first world tour back up Derek and the Dominos. D&D played Layla out of the chute and just a handful of other songs, but Elton John's set saved the evening. (By the way, a band called Toe Fat was the first to take the stage that night. How many of you can say you saw THAT act!?!)

In the early 90s when I lived in Charlotte NC, I went a number of times to see a small college band from Columbia SC play at a bar/restaurant. The majority of the time it was just me and my small group of friends watching this band play....they did not draw that many people.

Within a few years, this band appeared on Letterman, signed a big recording contract and came back to Charlotte (on the day they signed their first contract) and sold out a large venue. I couldn't figure out where all these people came from. The Letterman effect

Back to present day, the lead singer kid's go to the same school as my older son. Ironically, as a kid, he played on the same fields that my kids do now.

Unfortunately, I still have not worked up the courage to mention to Darius Rucker that 25 years ago I was one of his first fans.

Small world.

Well, an "I was there" and a couple almosts.

The almosts -

Yaz 3000th hit. Lived near enough to take the T in every day for a long stretch Probably 5 games. I was in HS and my parents finally said enough. So I went from the 7th to the 11th ..........and got to watch 3000 on tv like nearly everyone else. Somewhere I have film of Yaz getting out a bunch of times.

The bombing at the 96 Olympics. Dad and I went, and were in the park area during the day. Debated hanging around for the concert, but it had been a pretty long day and the act wasn't one I was really into. So we went back to the hotel.

The "I actually was there"

Havliceks last game.

Dad knew someone who had tickets to a game in Feb 78 in Hartford where the Celtics played a few games. That game got postponed because the blizzard collapsed the civic center roof. It got rescheduled to Boston Garden as the last game of the season. For some reason the other people couldn't go, and gave dad the tickets.

I also saw Stevie Wonder back up the Stones. It was at Madison Square Garden, on the night of Mick's 29th birthday, so they brought out a big cake for him. That was in 1972.
