a) Nobody getting on the (L) train in East New York is a tourist.
b) That may be the case for some of them, but in the city of Ewing and Frazier seeing such a disproportionate amount of out of town Jerseys is not an effect of that. I see one Knick jersey for every other 5 Celtic, Bull, Magic etc. jersey.
And yes there is something wrong with that, it's not about sports it's a testament to peoples attitudes. Moving on to the next best thing, instant gratification, no loyalty etc.
