When we planned our trip to the US, there was no way to leave without attending an NBA, NFL or NHL game! Prices being completely crazy in New York for the Knicks, you’d better try to get tickets for the Brooklyn Nets. In our case, we just decided to wait for our trip to Boston as the Celtics were playing against the Chicago Bulls. We loved it so much, that when we were in Washington, we couldn’t resist to go watch another game between the Wizards and the Hawks (Atlanta).
These games are just crazy. Of course, the sport side is quite impressive, but the atmosphere is fantastic. There is always something going on: cheerleaders (the Celtics’ are just amazing), games, more dance, more basketball with kids, freebies… I just can’t see how you can be there and be grumpy. And because we were so excited with the sports there (and so jet-lagged) we spent hours in front of the TV trying to understand American Football. Guess what? Now we know the rules! So my dear Frenchies: Yes you can (too)!
