In between hosting country music concerts, for all of Brooklyn’s many country fans coming from Brooklyn’s 385 country music bars, the Barclays Center hosts sporting events. If you missed our previous inflammatory article discussing it, you might not know that aside from the Nets, the Islanders will be calling Barclays home soon. And since one game watching the Islanders play hockey wasn’t enough to make fans vow to never come back, Barclays will be hosting another pre-season game on September 26.
The game, which is probably the shittiest 30th birthday present certain Brokelyn writers could get short of death itself, will be against the Devils, and will allow the people of Brooklyn to see the exciting hockey played by the two New York-area teams that aren’t in the playoffs. Tickets for the game go on sale at the Barclays website at noon on Friday, if for whatever reason you want to watch a couple of garbage teams play garbage hockey.
Coincidentally, Friday is also a day you could watch New York’s best professional sports team at the moment, the New York Rangers, face off agains the hated Flyers in actual playoff hockey at say, Rocky Sullivan’s. But hey, it’s your life, we’re not gonna talk you out of your awful sports decisions.
