Culture High and Low

It’s been a busy week of culture here in New York.  On Monday, Wendy took me to the Lincoln Center to see La Traviata:

The opera was great, although I must admit I was exhausted at the end.  I think it may have had something to do with the fact that Wendy had dragged me to The Duchess the night before.  Two period pieces in a row is quite exhausting.  Next time I’ll go for Wagner.

Fortunately, it as the Knicks home opener against Miami on Wednesday night.  Scott and I went; here’s the opening tip-off:

Remarkably good game; New York was up by over 15 but Miami closed it and almost took the game in the final minute.  Of note: this is the only town that boos its own players.  Both Eddie Curry and Stephon Marbury were booed during introductions.  Ironically, later on the crowd was cheering “We want Steph” (neither Curry or Marbury played; the coach has benched them both).
