New Jersey

After watching the entire Sopranos Season 2, and seeing a different side of New Jersey than what I’m familiar with, I’m glad to be exchanging my (expired) NJ driver’s license for a NY one.
But it’s a good week for New Jersey, or at least the two sports teams that play at the Arena formerly named after Brendan Byrne. The Devils will be playing in the NHL finals, in a matchup that pits “a Mickey Mouse team” against Mickey Mouse’s team. The Nets will play in the NBA finals, making this the first year where teams will be playing in the same arena in the NBA and NHL Stanley Cup finals since 1994. In 1994, Madison Square Garden watched the Rangers win their first Cup since 1940 and the Knicks lose to Houston in 7 games. Note that neither the Rangers nor the Knicks are in the playoffs this year.
