With new Brooklyn Nets website, promoters invoke expected Brooklyn icons: Dodgers, Brooklyn Bridge, Peter Luger

A new Brooklyn Nets website, essentially confirming the (not much in doubt) fact that the team will be renamed the Brooklyn Nets, heralds the move:
On September 28th, 2012, Brooklyn will become the official home of NETS Basketball. The most populous of New York’s five boroughs, Brooklyn is home to nearly 2.6 million others as well. It is a borough rich in culture, and diversity. And while Brooklyn is well-known for its history, the future is bright.

Through this blog, we will get to know our future home. From its many neighborhoods, to its notable monuments, museums, parks, and restaurants, we’ll explore it all.
There's nothing about the new Battle for Brooklyn documentary, of course, but there are obligatory citations of the Brooklyn Bridge and Peter Luger steakhouse.

Back to Dodgerland?

And then there's the inevitable Dodgers quote:
"Brooklyn was the most wonderful city a man could play in and the fans were the most loyal there were."
-Pee Wee Reese
Um, in how many ways are we not in Dodgerland any more?
