A Deficit Grows in Brooklyn Looks the Nets have been sold to Bruce Ratner, the guy who wants to bring the team to Brooklyn. First things first. Sure, we need an arena for the team and a guy to bring the CD that pumps the artificial crowd noise, but let's be rational for a minute: The name "Nets" is gay. The team is named after part of the basket. You can't expect me to root for a team with that moniker. There's no "Chicago Hardwood Floors" or "Miami Three Point Lines." We need a new nickname. How bout "the Brooklyn Double Parkers" or "the Brooklyn Stray Cats Who Pee in Your Bushes"? Too long? We'll find one that fits, don't worry.
