Going to Knicks game is less expensive than Lakers!
The Lakers and Celtics met in the most recent NBA Finals, so their fans probably are OK with them ranking first and third in the new Team Marketing Report standings for "fan cost index."
Less easy to swallow is that Our Knicks are second, at an estimated $420.04 for "four average-priced tickets, two small draft beers, four small soft drinks, four regular-size hot dogs, parking for one car, two game programs and two least-expensive, adult-size adjustable caps."
Hmm. Well, things are more expensive in New York, in fairness. And I never in my life have driven a car to a Knicks game, or bought an adjustable cap at one. So maybe that figure is a tad higher than it needs to be.
I don't know. I'm just randomly throwing stuff out there now because I have been told with 36 hours left, WatchDog is tantalizingly close to its first overall Newsday.com monthly page views championship.
Whatever you do, DO NOT read the TV Zone blog again until 12:01 a.m. Saturday. If you must discuss the season premiere of "30 Rock," feel free to do it here.
Just kidding, obviously. Read TV Zone early and often.
Read WatchDog more, though. Thanks.
