I keep hearing how great Madison Square Garden is… but I don't see it… especially now that we know it's teeming with asbestos:
Maintenance was being performed at Madison Square Garden following Monday's New York Rangers game which included "cleaning asbestos-related materials in the attic above the ceiling," according to the team. Some debris fell into the arena.
After consulting with the NBA, the Knicks decided to postpone the game for safety reasons. They said they will work with experts to determine when the arena can reopen.
Ok, "teeming" and "asbestos-laden death trap" are both exaggerations. But call me crazy for thinking major arenas that host huge events on an almost daily basis should ALREADY be asbestos free. How many millions of people are in and out of that place every year… and there's STILL asbestos in it? Doesn't that seem a little nuts to anyone else?
Have fun traipsing all over the tri-state area to get all your games in, Knicks. How's the signing feel now, Amare?
