Yesterday night I had a very nice American experience seeing a Basketball game at the Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. I went with a friend from France who is in New York this week and she enjoyed the game as much as me. We watch a college game, that was St. John’s versus Xavier Musketeers.
The game was at 8:00 pm so we left my apartment at 7:00 pm because we had 15 minutes walking to reach the stadium. It was very cold and we were happy to be finally inside the Madison Square Garden. Then we had time to buy something to eat and drink (hot dogs and beers of course). After we found our seats, we were pretty well placed. We had eaten our hot dogs and the game started.
The atmosphere in the stadium was amazing, friendly and overexcited. We were surprised about all the animation around the game, the cheerleaders, the singer, the dancers, the band… We did not have time to be bored!
Finally the local team St John’s won the game that still exited the stadium and we went back home with really good memories of this night.
