    11:15 pm is the LAST train.... If this game is close at the end or goes to OT.... I may not make this....

    Maybe I should just go to the finals :thumbsup:

    The station is in the basement of MSG. You won't have far to go to catch the train.

    (BTW Philly, I'm the original Tatanka from the old CUAD chat room. I met you and BuffGold for beers in Ann Arbor back in '96. Remember that?)

    Chinatown Bus

    You may want to check out some chinatown busses. They are really cheap and run about once an hour.

    So, you are talking about getting home after the game? Get a hotel. ESPN2 lists the game as going to 11:30. It would suck to have to leave 30 minutes early. How about Grand Central? Is there anything later from there?

    Another factor is that the first game could go long, which would therefore delay the start of ours. Also, don't they take a 30-minute break between games like they do in the NCAA tournament? Even if it's not 30 minutes, they have to give the teams at least some time to warm up before tipping off.

    IF you have a car, you can also take an NJ Transit train from Penn Station to Trenton and then drive home from there (and I think some Amtrak trains service Trenton so you should be able to start your trip there too...it looks like those trains run a little later into the night than Amtrak...

    No ****. One more human energy source would have produced 1.6 more points. We would have won 62.6 to 62 if Philly had been there. ****wad!
