Westminster, Brooklyn just bested your ass. Er, well, sort of.
The scoop is that the Gucci Masters horse competition--the creme-de-la-creme of show-jumping events (not that you didn't already know, duh)-- is coming to Brooklyn. To the currently non-existent Barclays Center, to be precise. With existing events in Paris and Hong Kong, the coordinators wanted to add one more venue, and naturally, they chose Brooklyn because of our culture and esteem.
Except, like, not. Or that's not what I gather from this Wall Street Journal article, which makes the whole decision sound like the Gucci Peeps chose Brooklyn because it's kinda hilarious and ironic, and those involved in the "glamour sport" need to, like, prove they've got a sense of humor or something.
