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!

High School Sports

Varsity Blues? Not at the TU!: Well, school starts tomorrow for most high schoolers around SmAlbany. And the TU seems to be making good on its intention to ramp up coverage of high school sports. There's a nice roundup of cross-country in today's paper, and the high school football coverage has been better than usual. The TU web section for high school sports has always been good, and it continues to be the best place to find out about stats, rosters, and schedules.

I'm still waiting to see how the TU blogger coverage of high school sports will be. It may or may not have started - i'll be damned if I can find any blogs on the website, although they continue to advertise it heavily. I suspect when it does get up and running that we'll find mostly cruddy coverage. But I also can imagine that there will be a few diamonds among the cow chips.

I actually signed up to write a blog about Shaker basketball this year [Do you suspect it will be a diamond or a cow chip? -ed. I'm sure you'll hate it. Why?-ed. Just a hunch.] It was something I was going to do anyway, and the TU outlet was as good as any, I figured. God knows we'll all need a diversion from Siena's train wreck this winter.

By total chance, I got my first interview last night.

I was grocery shopping in Latham, and I ran into Shaker's star center, 6' 11" senior Brad Sheehan, who is being recruited by national basketball powerhouses, and also happens to have a summer job working at the grocery store. So I took the opportunity to find out if he had settled on a college yet for next year. Rumor had it that Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Providence, and NC State were all in the running. Brad told me that he hadn't made any kind of decision yet, but that Georgia Tech was his current favorite. [And they say bloggers aren't real journalists - what a scoop!-ed. Give me a break, we were in the check-out line. But one little sorta-fact? That's it?-ed. I didn't want to bother the kid.] Maybe Paul Hewitt will start reading my blog this winter.
