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!

TU high school sports?

Dropping the ball: All week long the TU has been doing its daily previews of various high school sports: cross-country, soccer, etc. And they've been promising that on Friday they would do "other sports." I took this to mean that we'd get coverage of golf, field hockey, crew, swimming, and tennis. I was actually looking forward to it. So you can imagine my shock when I opened up the paper today and found just one short article by Bill Arsenault, about the Burnt Hills girls volleyball team.

What gives, TU sports? I hope the "focused coverage" you are promising for high school sports starting next week isn't as disappointing as today's preview. The TU has really been hyping it's expanded coverage of this stuff as part of the revamping of both the print and online paper. So far, I can only classify it as a disappointment - like why are you moving all the boxscores and such to "online only." But i'm willing to hold judgement for a bit longer. I just want to see some results. Right now it just looks like the same crappy coverage repackaged in a new way.

P.S. And when are those high school sports blogs starting up? [you seem to care quite a bit about high school sports? -ed. You have to, given Siena's prospects this year.]
