So if we were being appreciated as Knicks fans yesterday, we would've felt, well, appreciated.
All fans who attend the game will be welcomed to enjoy free food and beverages from MSG's concession stands throughout the building starting at 6:30 p.m., when doors open to the public. In addition, servers will walk around the arena to distribute food and drink items, including hot dogs, pretzels, soda and water, among other choices. This marks the first time MSG has provided food and non-alcoholic drinks at no cost to fans.We would've eaten like 11 hotdogs, taken plenty of "other choices" and drank tons of water. Hydration is important. And "other choices" is much like choosing what's in the mystery box. It could be anything!
There will also be a major merchandise discount of 30 percent off everything.
Of course Knicks fans would prefer a few other things on Fan Appreciation Day, like:
1. A few more wins
2. Isiah Thomas getting fired or deported
3. Spitzer's hooker
4. No taxes (hey, it's Tax Day! Score two for a relevant, yet unfunny joke).
5. Gateway drugs
The booze was not free, of course, so we imagine that MSG still pulled in five figures on beer sales as the Knicks lost for the 58th time this season.
