For the record, Spike Lee has been attending her games, as I mentioned here. When ESPN pointed him out at one of her early matches, I thought, “Oh no, that guy is sports Jonah” because I blame him, and lots of other people, for how bad the Knicks are. Obviously, he hasn’t jinxed her, yet.
I don’t know if he has been at the later matches, because ESPN CRAPPED OUT ON MY XFINITY TO GO FEED during her last two triumphs.
I once saw Spike Lee in midtown Manhattan. I’m a big fan. He threw out a piece of paper in a trash can in front of me. I wanted to shout, “Everybody, that is SPIKE LEE who just threw out a piece of paper” but because I was at the time a cool New Yorker (and we have a culture built on power, money, and skullduggery rather than siimple celebrity [like the left coast]) I didn’t say a word. I just let Spike throw out his piece of paper without being harassed while I admired his backpack.
