A New Use for Madison Square Garden

Please allow us a brief sports diversion.

Only days after the conclusion of soccer madness, Mayor Bloomberg announced today that that other suburban pastime of netted goals and short shorts will be invading the city: New York has been awarded its first-ever professional lacrosse franchise, thus far unnamed, which will play in Madison Square Garden. (I guess these guys didn’t count.)

“The New York City franchise is dedicated to ensuring that every fan has the chance to experience the thrill of a live lacrosse game,” said Mr. Bloomberg.

Thrill?

Well, it has to be more fun than watching the Knicks lose.

Lacrosse fans can suggest team names here.
