Puzzle #29: Word Pyramid VI: Sports Section

Hello to all!  I truly hope that you and yours had a great holiday season.  I had a wonderful holidays with friends and family.  I must also add that I have a great wife and son.  Both were just fantastic dealing with all of the holiday traveling and stresses as well as being great fun during the festive and relaxing parts of the Yuletide.  I could not be a luckier husband or father.

So with the vacation aside, I am back with the first Puzzling New York offering for 2010.  I have returned to the word pyramid, and this time it is New York City sports themed.  remember a word pyramid is a puzzle which starts with a one letter answer and adds another letter to every subsequent answer.  The letters can be rearranged from one answer to the next in any order you like, but no letter is ever dropped.  For example, A, AT, TAB would be an acceptable first three answers to a word pyramid.  Happy New Year everyone, and Happy Puzzling!
