Id rather hang myself than talk about sports, Mr. Avery said. He turned the conversation to the New Museum of Contemporary Art downtown.
His friends ribbed him about his unjock-like sensibilities, most visible in his usual fashion palette: black, highlighted by accents of black.
Im a dark guy, Mr. Avery said. I like that funereal feel.
That taste extends beyond clothing. Mr. Avery admitted that he drives his teammates crazy by cranking up Sigur Ros, the moody Icelandic rock band, before games. The more sad the music, the better, he explained.
Wait, I thought Avery was an uncultured neanderthal? I say that all apposing fans arguing such be directed to this article from now on.
Offtopic: That an A-class website for a newspaper, wish swedish newspapers would get the concept of web design, the only thing they focus on online is getting their web TV's filled with crappy clips in AFV style, mixed with a news report every now and then....
i was in 409 lastnight hoping he'd come up to the blueseats for a bit. booo.
It is pretty cool that he comes up and hangs with the true die hards. I sit in 407 so he was either side of me the 2 times he was up there. He was pretty good about autographs to. He signed them from the minute he got up there.
I read that Avery jumped on stage with James Dolan and his band last week at some benefit they were playing.
Was the benefit for Isiah? Seriously though, before the season started I had reservations about giving Avery a long-term deal. However, seeing the difference between this team with Avery in the line-up and without, I want to see him offered at least a three year deal.
