Your soul, the swamp and eternity
In October, I wrote a story about The New Jersey Nets and the train-wreck they were going to be this year. A very tough and gutsy prediction, but so far, so good. One of the things that I mentioned in the piece was this strange ad campaign that the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority had launched within the last year. The radio ads, run almost exclusively on AM, go like this:
"It's all about being here! It's what your soul understands. It's all about being here! The Meadowlands!"I have pondered this message for a long, long time. Is the NJSEA an ecstatic cult sending out subliminal messages? Do they have all the answers to life that I'm looking for? Do they have Bible study? Any help would be much appreciated.
