I am, yes. I’m looking forward to taking my grandson to some games. You see, people my age—I won’t tell you how old—we grew up with the Dodgers. Ask anyone my age who grew up in Brooklyn—they’ll tell you the world ended when the Dodgers left. So it’s nice to have another home team. I never felt like the Yankees or Mets were my teams. My son is a Yankees fan but my grandson is just getting old enough to be taken to games. So he can grow up with the Brooklyn Nets and be a fan of theirs. You can’t just be a fan of a new team. There has to be some history there.

I can tell you I don’t like the arena. That thing is ugly. But I don’t care; I don’t follow US sports. Basketball doesn’t do anything for me. I like cricket. I’d be much more excited if there was a big cricket league around here. Do you like cricket? What’s your favorite sport? [Mini-golf.] Fag.

Ask me in a year. I don’t live too far from the stadium, so if all these people fuck up the subways and everything gets crowded and prices go up everywhere, I’ll hate it. Fucking hate it. This area is too much already. But if it means we get better subway service, better stuff in general, then good. But I don’t watch basketball. Go Jets!
