F-A-Natic Fridays – Marija “The Knicks Chick” Kero
I wanted to take a quick minute and give a shout out to one of the great fans of sports….
With the resurgence of the NY Knicks this season, there is no other fan who is enjoying this NBA season more than Marija Kero aka “The Knicks Chick”. Now I consider myself a sports junkie, but I don’t know if I’m at the level of Ms Kero. Her passion for the Knicks might be unmatched as all she wants is for Knicks to be good again and reclaim the glory of the 90s and 70s; but don’t let her good looks or her love for the Knicks fool you!
She is not one of those fans that will endlessly defend her team; if she doesn’t like something she will let it be known. I am pretty sure if you go back and watch Knicks games from last season; you can probably hear her yelling “Pringles (her name for D’Antoni) you suck!” or “I hate you JJ (Jared Jeffries)!”. Trust me, I witnessed some of this last season 1st hand and according to her that was a toned down version of her antics during games (she didn’t want to scare me).
But that’s not what makes Knicks Chick stand out from most fans…..
While other Knicks’ fans sit around either gloating or cursing after games; Knicks Chick takes to YouTube to express her feelings. Her rants (and I mean that in a good way) are informative, hilarious, and unforgiving.
Here is 1 example of her sharp analysis…
Because of commentary (and BBM faces) like that Marija was featured on NBA Access with Ahmad Rashad; soon after that Knicks Chick became a regular contributor to Hoops Vibe. On Hoops Vibe she spits her hard-hitting commentary about anything and everything dealing with the NBA; without a doubt she is the true definition of a fan.
If you got a second check her out either on HoopsVibe.com, Twitter – @KnicksChick or on her YouTube page; http://www.youtube.com/user/TheKnicksChick#p/u/7/Wzm2jNvUmiI
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
