Possibly One Of The Greatest Things Ever?

According to this article in today's New York Times sports section, Cablevision has said that it would "explore the spinoff of its Madison Square Garden busines."

This would be the greatest thing ever. Better than the the wheel and fire: making it number two of greatest things ever. Internet porn would retain it's top spot, however. I mean, I would be willing to sell Open Bar as a slave to Ethiopian pirates to facilitate this happening.

Alas, the article goes on to point at that sometimes spinoffs are sold off entirely but sometimes they are held onto as subsidiaries of the parent company.

One random fuckhead, Craig Moffet who is a senior analyst at Bernstein and Lick-My-Balls Research thinks that "the notion that the Dolans would retain ownership of MSG and the New York sports teams long after the rest of the assets had been divested has always been view as among the most likely outcomes".

Fuck you, Craig.

Charles "I Am Cool Because I Have A Band" Dolan should be hung, Saddam Hussein style for what he has done to our beloved Knicks and his father should be burned alive for giving life to that troll.

So just to sum up, Cablevision may or may not sell the Knicks.

Probably not.

But, good God, I hope they do.

Have you ever considered a position in PR for the Knicks?

Have you ever considered not being a douchebag?

Oh, and thanks for reminding us all that there still is a "Knicks".

If this were to happen at the end of next season, and then the Knicks signed LeBron shortly thereafter, it would be the greatest turnaround for a sports franchise in such a short period of time since Eli escaped that sack and hit Tyree for the helmet catch.

Mmmmmm . . . . Helmet Catch.

My heart has been swinging on the pendulum between Knicks Fan <-> Sixers Fan for the past 3.5 years. This season, it has started to swing towards Philadelphia. I am not proud of this. Sometimes the head and the heart feel different things. My head will always say "Knicks". However, if this does go through, I think my heart will take a huge swing back to NY as well.
