Watching last night's Portland-Seattle game, something puzzled me. In the first half, hometown Blazer fans were distracting Sonic free throw shooters with inflatable "Thunder Stix". I wondered aloud why they had them so early. At the Garden they distribute them to the fans behind the away basket at halftime. Then I realized, if both sides got Thunder Stix, we bitter Knick fans would surely be compelled to attack our own players with noisy distraction as an indicator of our discontent. Limit it to one side, one half, and the opposing team is the only viable target. The Dolan regime is censoring you in ways you can't even detect.
