  1. No surprise .... I have heard that Syracuse and Siena Men's first game, possible first two or three are in doubt. The UAlbany announcement link is below: https://ualbanysports.com/news/2020/11/19/mens-basketball-announces-2020-21-schedule-revisions.aspx
  2. I am sharing an e mail received yesterday concerning a fundraiser for the UAlbany Women's Basketball: Good Afternoon, We hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy. The Great Dane Athletic Club cordially invites you to participate in a Virtual Wine Tasting Fundraiser to benefit the UAlbany Women’s Basketball Team on Thursday, December 10th at 7:30 PM. Jim Curry, Addy’s Fine Wine & Spirits Sommelier, will host a virtual live tasting of 3 delicious wines from the comfort of your home before finishing the evening with some basketball and wine trivia
  3. You can now add Siena Saints Women's program to the list...of schools suspending activities due to a member of the team and/or staff testing positive....anyone looking for 25 lb turkey....a coach is no longer hosting her team on Thanksgiving....
  4. I have spoken to 4 other season ticket holders who felt that under no circumstances that they would attend a game on campus until 2021...common reason to protect the health of other family members...follow by themselves...yes this is hard...I can carry on without the on-campus experience under the current situation around the Capital District...I could not live with myself if I bought Covid-19 from attending a game and infected my spouse...
  5. Not everybody is part of Red Sox Nation...further very little else to post about...at least the reaction was "more" friendly then when I posted about Jerrad Knots birthday....avoided mentioning Jon Iata birthday a few days back..
  6. Like many of you, I received an e-mail letter from Mark Benson concerning "Fans in the Stands"... to those who did not receive the e-mail the body of the message is below: I hope this email finds you safe and healthy. Thank you for supporting Great Dane Athletics as a basketball season ticket holder last season. While this year has obviously presented many challenges and uncertainty, we are excited for our basketball programs to compete for America East Championships this season. Due to the current New York State guidelines for live indoor events, we are not allowed
  7. Wishing David the happiest birthday... from Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/redsox/
  8. Just a little "tongue in check", the Golden Apple Trophy Game originally scheduled for November 21, 2020, is now scheduled for March 27, 2021. I can only hope the forecast for 03-27-2021 is as good as now currently forecast for 11-21-2020. I always enjoyed when the last game of the season fell on the Saturday before Thanksgiving and the game is at home. This football game seemed to signal the start of the holiday season for me.

  16. Thank you for your alert .... I provided the link to the Ivy League announcement: https://ivyleague.com/news/2020/11/12/general-ivy-league-outlines-intercollegiate-athletics-plans-no-competition-for-winter-sports.aspx The bell weather is trending poorly... My opinion America East will be the next conference to cancelled. Not based on anything... just a gut feeling.... This rates an UGH!!
  17. After making the call early in the summer, I consider Union College and Rensselaer (and their conference) as bell weather indicators of the potential direction where we are headed (intermediate time-frame) see links below: https://unionathletics.com/news/2020/11/9/general-sports-update-on-winter-2020-21-athletic-seasons.aspx https://libertyleagueathletics.com/news/2020/11/9/mens-basketball-liberty-league-statement-on-winter-sports-competition.aspx I am losing faith of seeing any prospect of seeing basketball.....
  18. Looking to show how others are doing with the Class of 2022....
  19. Always looking for something to inform, found an article from late September 2020 on the INSIDE LACROSSE website ... provides a broader view of 2022 commitments for all Div I schools: https://www.insidelacrosse.com/recruiting/commitments?class=2022&league=1
  20. With suspension of all sporting activity...thoughts on how prepared our football team will be...once gain UGH....
  21. I was thinking along the same lines when I saw this posting....
  22. Just breaking on the Albany Times - Union; all UAlbany sports on hold .... no practices, no team meetings, no nothing; as part of the decision to move to remote learning... What does this mean winter sports? Thoughts and concerns: https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/UAlbany-athletic-programs-shut-down-during-15715294.php?IPID=Times-Union-HP-CP-Spotlight Further, the MAAC faces an uncertain future based on an article posted in today's Times - Union: https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/Siena-basketball-MAAC-face-uncertain-path-to-15713085.php
  23. Comments from our newest contributor oddly similar to my 10-27-2020 posting......would appreciate an acknowledgement
