Introducing…. The Brooklyn Game store!
The first thing you’ll notice about our snazzy new store is our products are overpriced! Not as overpriced as, say, the Nets, but definitely not bargain basement. Why? As you may know, we are the exclusive partner of YES Network. But at the end of the day we’re still an independent enterprise, reliant on our own methods to keep this ship afloat. A major chunk of that is advertising but that frankly is not nearly enough.
So we’re selling some really cool stuff to make ends meet.
Think of it as a double Christmas gift: by buying a t-shirt or onesie, you’ll be spreading joy to your favorite Brooklyn Nets fan (and that can be you) and helping your favorite place for Brooklyn Nets news & analysis keep up and running.
And there’s more! If you buy anything, you will automatically become a Premium Brooklyn Game Member. No, you don’t get to hang out with Jay-Z. But if you send us a picture of yourself wearing the gear ([email protected]), you will have your most pressing Nets question answered by Devin on the site. They don’t even have to be about the Nets — they just have to be appropriate. Plus, you will be enrolled in our Member Hall of Fame, a special gallery depicting our loyalist fans.
You can think of it like giving to public radio, but instead of getting a tote bag, you get to sport the immortal words of Kevin Garnett who commented after his first Nets home game, “Big Up To Brooklyn!” Or you can think of as buying a subscription to The Brooklyn Game (willfully and generously forgetting that you can currently get the content for free).
We’ve got t-shirts, hoodies – men’s and women’s — iphone covers, a baby onesie and a coffee mug – with The Brooklyn Game logo, the “Big Up To Brooklyn” message, or an ironic slogan combining the word “artisanal” and “Nets” in the same sentence.
You can get them in a variety of sizes and colors (though, of course, black looks best).
Anything ordered before December 13th will get to you in time for Christmas. Just some platelet-rich plasma for thought.
Best Wishes, Happy Shopping, and THANK YOU.
