It was like a dream come true. My favorite team, the Knicks, would be playing in my hometown against the Wizards on my birthday. I scheduled my birthday around the game. Told friends and family. I was very excited.
Turns out it was a dream. I somehow transformed a desire into reality in my mind. But no amount of hope was going to change the Twenty Ten NBA schedule.
So, I disappointed myself on my birthday already. If only the Haitian earthquake was the dream and the Knicks game was reality, instead of the other way around.
