Just watched the New York Giants beat the San Francisco 49ers with a field goal in overtime in the NFC playoff game. So it’ll be a New York Giants - New England Patriots Super Bowl two weeks from now.
But until then, here’s some sports wisdom I found somewhere on the interwebs.
It’s winter so we went to buy some ice-skates at the Chelsea Piers ice-rink. We stayed and watched a game of little league hockey and walked home via the High Line.
Going to watch South Africa play in the Rugby World Cup. There were only a handful of places in NYC that were even showing the games - the Red Lion, an English pub on Bleecker St was one of them.
The skaters are coming! The skaters are coming!
Ok.. so subsequent to filming this we found out it’s an annual not-entirely-legal longboard race from somewhere near the top of Central Park down Broadway in traffic and ending at the Bull near Wall Street int he Financial District. It’s called The Broadway Bomb and there are supposed to be over a thousand skaters racing this year. Apparently you can say “bomb” in America as long as you’re not near an airport. I’m sure that with the Occupy Wall Street hippies camping out pretty close to the finish line it could make for an interesting finish for the NYPD and all concerned.
Some more photos from the Yankees game.
We went with some mates to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx to watch the New York Yankees take on Oakland Athletics. Spotted a really nice Royal Enfield on the way.
Ladies and Gentlemen. Our home team.
