Other sportswriters throughout Brooklyn  are surely kicking themselves right about now for not writing that book proposal they thought of back when they first heard that the Nets were moving to Brooklyn.

In his official capacity, Mr. Appleman will no doubt get to enjoy the much hyped food offerings at Barclays Center. We hope Mr. Appleman likes artisanal, Brooklyn-produced food (and really, who doesn’t?). We hear there is a lot of that at the new stadium.
