No trip to Gotham
Big, big couple of days in Oklahoma. OSU hires a new basketball coach in Travis Ford on Thursday, then today the NBA votes on relocation to OKC for the Seattle SuperSonics.
I wanted to be in New York City for the big vote, but it’s a good thing I didn’t go. I didn’t want to miss the Ford celebration — thumbs up is my analysis — and without a private jet,. it would have been impossible to make it to downtown Gotham City AND cover the Stillwater press conference, considering I didn’t leave Gallagher-Iba Arena until 9:15 p.m.
Oh well. Our NBA writer, Darnell Mayberry, is in New York and has everything well in hand, and our budget didn’t need to take a two-person hit on a trip to Midtown Manhattan, considering the cans of Sprite are going for $9, as Mayberry RFD reported in today’s Oklahoman.
But here’s what I regret about not making the trip. Guess who else is in New York this weekend? The Boston Red Sox. I believe I could have made it over to Yankee Stadium last night for the most storied rivalry in professional sports. I’ve never seen a Yanks-Red Sox game, and I’m sure I will sometime in my life, but not in the current Yankee Stadium, which will be torn down after this season to make way for a new palace.
