A Day Off in NYC

Last Thursday my friend, Michael, and I met for lunch at Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. The line for burgers and shakes wrapped around the park, but it was sunny and 65 degrees, so no one was complaining. While eating our lunch on what is literally the median between Broadway and 5th Avenue disguised as a seating area (with the perfect view of the Flatiron Building's northern-most point), we couldn't help but notice several people wearing Tar Heel gear. After determining that the NIT championship game was being held that night at Madison Square Garden (which isn't even close to Madison Square Park, by the way) between the aforementioned Tar Heels of North Carolina and the Dayton Flyers, we shrugged our shoulders, stumped for a reason not to go, and decided to walk over to MSG to pick up a pair of tickets.

The game was fun, if not relatively sloppy; Roy got worked up several times, which is always fun to watch. In the end the Flyers were too much for UNC, and they took home the trophy. Congratulations on 66th place, Dayton, though at this point I'm convinced you could've given the Jayhawks a run for their money had Northern Iowa not already done so.
