n.— «As the New Jersey Nets play this season at Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, N.J., they are busy drumming up season ticket sales and securing a fanbase here on Staten Island. In anticipation of the basketball team’s eventual move to Brooklyn, the club occasionally holds what it refers to as “influencers,” a meet and greet where fans and players interact.» —“Brooklyn-bound Nets search here for fans” by Doug Auer Staten Island Advance (New York City) Dec. 27, 2006.
