What...did they BOOK these today too?! Why not J Lo or Alicia Keys for NY, Bruce or Bon Jovi for NJ since the SB missed out, and Mariah Carey, Pat Benatar or Joan Jett for LI?! Now THAT woulda made sense! No, instead the guy who made "FU" a household name leads the way in the Bronx. Nice marketing once again, NHL. :(
