It’s playoff season! That means a lot of things. Glorious victories, heartbreaking defeats, and most of all, hilarious fan videos. Today, I have two very different ones for your enjoyment.

The first comes by way of the Pacific Northwest. Vancouver, to be exact. Some puckheads put together another parody to Rebecca Black’s Friday called Game Day. Not the most original idea but it might be the most well-done. Not that I’ve been watching tons and tons of Rebecca Black parody videos. Let’s just hope they don’t riot too much when the Canucks get bounced from the playoffs.

Second, straight out of Washington Square Park, The Don Cap sings Now With Melo as he explores landmarks around the NYU area. Bonus points for incorporating Go NY Go into the song. Minus points for the autotune. The kid has spunk and I like the fact that he didn’t steal his video from a 12-year-old girl.

Who’s the winner? That’s an easy one. We all are.

The Knicks clinched their first playoff spot in seven years last night, and as unbelievable as it seems that the Knicks could miss the playoffs for six years in a row, I’m really happy and really proud of this team. It’s not the ultimate goal, but it’s the first step and I’m going to celebrate. Everyone deserves some credit from Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni to Amar’e for taking the first step in making the team relevant again to the guys who were shipped to Denver. I’m excited to able to watch playoff basketball in the Garden again.

However, there’s always somebody who wants to rain on your parade. My friend Rory is from New Jersey and is one of 12 New Jersey (soon to be Brooklyn) Nets fans. He thinks everything about the Knickerbockers is overblown and has been sitting in the emptiness of Continental Arena for years stewing. His story is coming up.
