(come for the ghosts, stay for the awesome breakfast buffet)
If the Knicks seemed particularly listless while being blown out by Kevin Durant and the Thunder last night, perhaps that’s because the previous evening’s stay at Oklahoma City’s Skirvin Hilton — allegedly, a haunted hotel — provided little rest. From the New York Daily News’ Frank Isola :
“I definitely believe it,” Jared Jeffries said. “The place is haunted. It’s scary.”
Eddy Curry claims he slept for only two hours Sunday night because he couldn’t stop thinking about ghosts roaming the hotel.
For years, guests staying at the Skirvin have reported ghost sightings and strange noises. Legend has it that sometime in the 1930s, a woman jumped to her death while holding her baby in her hands.
“They said it happened on the 10th floor and I’m the only one staying on the 10th floor,” Curry said. “That’s why I spent most of my time in (Nate Robinson’s) room. I definitely believe there are ghosts in that hotel.”
