Why Storytime?


Friedrich Nickerbocker, when asked what his story was meant to prove...


"That there is no situation in life but has its advantages and pleasures - provided we will but take a joke as we find it."

Dude, who's this Friedrich Knickerbocker?

The photo is of Washington Irving, whose fictional character Diedrich Knickerbocker became synonymous with Manhattanites, hence, the NY Knicks.

Is this some kind of ruse?

Friedrich is his brother...or something. So sue me. And thanks for the history lesson.
