Knicks Fanatics

The Ultimate In Knicks Fandom and Fellowship


At Knicks Fanatics, we don’t play.  This is “Knicks Spirit Week” and we are going to start it off with a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. 

Forget about the Miami Heat’s heart stopping championship Dance Team.  Sure the most popular dance team in the NBA is the perennial best, but they root for the D-Wade posse not the D’Antoni disciples.  We like the Knicks dance team too.  Despite their more respectably family friendly attire (they don’t dress like they live on the beach often enough), we can imagine them in a shirts and skins water-basketball game.

But we can’t spend the entire season sleeping with the enemy’s cheerleaders on our minds.  That’s not in keeping with the spirit of Knicks Spirit.  And MSG doesn’t give us enough of the Knicks women to get us through a season of even minimal stress and distress. So, in order to keep our spirits up during the upcoming season, I’m proposing we get our own cheerleaders.

What would our cheerleaders do? Cheer us up silly. Lift our sprits. Our cheerleaders would pop up at the most appropriate (and inappropriate) times on this blog and in our Live Blogging (LBEs) coverage of games.  They will help keep us engaged, if not to our girlfriends, at least in our efforts to love our Knicks through thick and thin, better or worse (worse will never happen – Knicks Spirit Week, remember?).

I’m thinking that for this year’s cheerleading job, we need to choose amongst the best Spirit Movers in history.  I’m thinking, on this blog, we are fans of the classics, we are fans of the best.  We need Mega-cheerleaders and what better place to get them than back at the Old School – believe me when I say the creator has always been a fantastic architect of human form.  I’d put my old school team up against today’s best anytime.  Move over Beyonce, you’re a Nets fan anyway, aren’t you?

So this is the deal.  We have received about 24 portfolios from some of the most talented (most of them can really dance) and beautiful women in not-too-long ago popular culture.  It is our task to check them out, look them over, evaluate their talent for our purposes and then choose the final 12 who will lead us into the 2009-2010 season.  The portfolios are divided into two groups.  Group 1 will be introduced in a couple of seconds.  Group 2 will be introduced on Tuesday.  They all will return on Thursday when you will be asked to vote and the 12 with the most votes will become our Knicks idols for the year.

And finally, thanks to the Fanatic Connoisseurs of Fine Spirits for the recommendations to the team.  Good work folks.  (Warning: if your boss catches you lingering over this post, tell her you’re looking for a new secretary; if your girlfriend catches you, tell her how disgusted you are at the blogger who did this to one of your favorite blogs. If that doesn’t work, I can’t help you. )

So without further ado, I present to you the ladies who look to join the Fabulous Fanatics Dance-Spirit Team.  LGK.

  1. WOW Lives

    I’m impressed, these old school ladies in some skivies is a great reason to keep optimistic for this upcoming season of Knicks’ carnage.

    One question though, Do they have “Spirit Fingers?”

  2. Lives:

    Consider adding Linda Darnell to list of oldie competitors. Beyond the top 12 who suit up, do we not have enough “cap space” to add another 3 alternate dancers to the team?

    • Done. Prince, I’m pretty sure that you can’t use the same “cap space” twice in one day. But I do get how hard the choices are.

      I believe this is post #100 since we’ve been in this new spot and I can say that “technically” this is one of my favorite posts. Not only was the research very interesting, the things I learned about photoshop was worth the effort.
