Lucky Duck attends his first Knicks game.
It was an incredible opportunity to get four Club Seats at The Knicks game this weekend. I picked my favorite people from work and loved crossing another bucket list item off my list. I couldn’t have attended with a better group of gals, or had a better time. I love my life in New York City, thanks to these people.
And here are The New York Knicks
Pre-game festivities always excite me, so I raced uptown to Madison Square Garden to catch the team’s announcement and order up some nachos from Club in-seat service. We had an incredible view, poised to be spoiled for the next two and a half hours.
My moment of a-ha!
As I chatted about some work related projects during the game, I was excited to know that I was “doing business” at a Knicks basketball game, in a killer seat, in New York City. And not only that, but I was hosting the experience, and that made me feel proud and happy. A guy didn’t buy me the tickets. A boss didn’t invite the team. I scored these tickets at my killer job in advertising, and I got to take my favorite colleagues and friends out to MSG to see The New York Knicks. This wouldn’t have happened in Seattle, and as the moment sunk in, I recognized that taking a chance on a new life in New York City was a smart decision and that I did the right thing.
The New York Knicks win
And fittingly, I got to see the Knicks win during my first game! As I was leaving Madison Square Garden, I texted my dad, “I love my life today!” and I meant it. It was such an awesome afternoon.
There’s always something cool in New York
After a year and a half in The Big Apple, I love that I’m still doing new things week over week. When I left Seattle and first got out here, I couldn’t have guessed where I’d be a year and a half out. These days, New York feels like home, and I know in my heart that there’s no going back. This New Yorker bleeds blue, and I’m here to stay for a while.
