Barclays Brings Brooklyn Basketball
Not since 1957 has Brooklyn Been home to Professional Sports. Many of our parents remember Ebbets field in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn. Yet the Dodgers went to La La Land, and the Borough has remained Sports-rein ever since.
Enter Bruce Ratner, a real estate mogul who has been relentless in his drive to Bring Back Boys of Summer (or Fall or Winter) to Brooklyn.
In the downtown section of the Borough, Bruce has Built a Ball-park designed By Becket's Architecture Firm worthy of hosting Boxing, Basketball, Brass-Bands and Bar and Bas-Mitzvahs.
Brighton Beachers and Boro-parkers will need only hop on a train to Be Bedazzled By Blocks, Breakaways and Baseline Buzzer Beater Buckets.
Backstreet Boys will Befriend Bad Behaviored Betters who Believe that Beer Bellied Boasting Brooklynites are Best.
Amid the Brownstones of Broadway, Bob Dylan and Barbara Streisand will join with Barnum and Bailey's Brothers Circus to entertain the 2.5 million residents who will no longer need to drive the BQE, But will Be able to take the B line or the Bus and make a Bee-line to this centrally located Building.
But the real Benefit of this Barclays Bank Briyah will be to serve the overflow crowds that will flock to MetLife Stadium, CitiField etc. for the Siyum Hashas of 2019.
