Default The Jeffersons and the New York Knicks

Hi everyone! So I'm a history professor working on a book project, and have been searching for connections between '70s TV shows and the NBA (especially the New York Knicks). In 1973 and 1980, Archie Bunker (first in All in the Family and later in Archie Bunker's Place) makes some great Knicks references.

Do you know of any Knicks references in The Jeffersons? I searched the Wiki and couldn't come up with any, but saw an unattributed reference about George going to a Knicks game and not knowing who the Knicks were going to lose to that night. Something along those lines.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Im a jeffersons fanatic and the knicks were never mentioned on this show. Only the Yankees and Jets

The only other NY sports team that was connected to George Jefferson was the Mets but that was on All in the family

Thank you so much! I didn't remember anything about the Knicks being mentioned, but I've not seen all the episodes, and wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

I remembered the Yankees and Mets; was hoping there was a random Knicks statement in there as well. Oh well. Thanks again!

Kind of funny the Knicks wasnt mentioned on the Jeffersons when they played in the area they lived in...Manhattan. The Jets played in Queens and Yankees played in the Bronx,.

Actually works for my argument that the Knicks were largely irrelevant from the mid-seventies to mid-eighties!

'73 actually. But by 1975, they were already slipping and until '85, pretty irrelevant!

You're a professor and writing a book? I hope you have an editor - it's not proper English to begin a sentence with the word "so".

I apologize for the missing punctuation in my original post. You are correct; using 'so' should have been followed by a comma, if used at all to begin a sentence.

However, I don't appreciate that you characterized my credentials based on a missing punctuation mark or use of a preposition to begin a sentence.

This is how you are presenting yourself. I don't have anything else to go on.

Thank you, then, for making me feel so welcome as a new member on this forum. I'm unsubscribing, and will likely never read whatever insightful comment you make to this post.

If you do have the time in a schedule full of belittling people anonymously on a forum message board, you can Google me. I'm not hiding behind a nom de plume. I earned a doctorate in history and have already published two books; I've also edited half a dozen others.

Yes, I missed a comma in my original post; using "So" to begin a sentence is not improper, although it is a bit informal. Thank God you commented on it, as I'm certain everyone else who is interested in talking about the Jeffersons has appreciated your grammar policing.
