Oh, SmAlbany!

Daily posts and occasional longer essays about politics, culture, and life in the Capital Region...updated M-F, midmorning


"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

Clemens / Valley Cats...

A poor man's Ron Guidry Night: I wasn't in town, but I'm not sure I would have gone over to the Valley Cat's game just to see Roger Clemens in the stands, as 5200 people did on Thursday night. Just seems a little bit too much of a stretch. My brother-in-law was surprised at the lack of coverage, espeically compared to RGN in 1986, but i actually thought it was overblown. The guy was just sitting in the stands. We're not that provincial here in SmAlbany. Then again, I wasn't in town. Maybe I'm just jealous I didn't get to go.

On the other hand, it is probably worth it to go over there and catch Koby Clemens before the season ends. That way you can give it the old "I saw him way back when" when he's in the majors. [Don't you do that all the time? -ed. Yes, that's why i suggested it. So that wasn't sarcastic?-ed. Take it how you want to.]
