So after a 1-1 split at the Armory, the Albany Patroons did a three-game road trip to Quebec. Three games in three days in the frozen North. Fun stuff. Well, they came back from their Quebec road trip with three victories. Nice. First off was a 90-80 triumph in Montreal against the expansion Toundra de…Read More

The Patroons won two championships and five division titles from 1983 to 2009. They were a great basketball team and I wish they would return some day.
Albany Patroons 114, Lehigh Valley 107 – and how about some 3-D Patroons shots?
My first photography adventures began way back in 2005, when I took my little Nikon D70 with its kit lens to an Albany Patroons game and got some images for my efforts. I learned a lot in those early days. I learned that a camera that could barely achieve an ISO of 1600, with a…Read More
The moment that the Shreveport Mavericks ripped out my heart and stomped on it.
Last night. The Albany Patroons were on the cusp of claiming their fourth franchise title. The game went back and forth between the Patroons and the Mavericks all night. All night. But in the final seconds, Albany had a two-point lead, 120-118. All they had to do was keep the Mavericks from claiming one more…Read More
Albany Patroons force Game 3 of 2022 TBL Finals!
The Albany Patroons have fought their way back from adversity throughout this entire postseason. In the opening playoff round, they lost the first of a three-game series against Atlantic City, only to sweep the Gambits in Games 2 and 3 at the Armory to advance. They then had to hold off the Huntsville Hurricane in…Read More
The Albany Patroons RETURN TO THE FINALS!!
In the end, last night wasn’t even close. The Albany Patroons entered the Washington Avenue Armory and dog-walked the Kokomo BobKats 121-83. Took them out like Glass Joe in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. Don’t believe me? Look at that scoreboard. It gets better. With that win, the Patroons are now the champions of the TBL’s East…Read More
For one night, it’s not Patroons, it’s Pot-troons and Pan-troons
Last night, the Albany Patroons were in a dire situation. They’re currently in a best-of-three semifinal championship match with the Kokomo BobKats, and the Pats lost Game 1 on the road in Kokomo – in front of a packed house full of cowbell-toting fans and a noisy fan drumline. What, you think Kokomo was loud?…Read More
It’s NBL Canada / TBL All-Star Weekend!
First things first. My new-to-me 2017 Chevrolet Volt Premier (“Lightning’s Girl”) did quite well on its first truly extended road trip. A straight shot from Albany to Syracuse, with a pitstop in Clinton for a couple of photographs that may show up in a future blog post. So here I am in Syracuse. The National…Read More
Albany Patroons vs. London Lightning tonight … can’t I root for both teams??
I knew this day would arrive. It had to. Full disclosure. I’ve worked with the National Basketball League of Canada for the past ten years, working in statistics and player clearances. More full disclosure. I’ve worked with the Albany Patroons for many years, doing everything from game photos to PA announcing to broadcasting to post-game…Read More
Xavier Moon gets 10 days and a dream fulfilled
It’s absolutely fantastic when you can celebrate someone achieving their life goal. And for Xavier Moon – he reached it yesterday, and has a chance to cement it in the next ten days. For those of you who remember Xavier Moon as a member of the Albany Patroons during the Pats’ 2018 season, you saw…Read More
I’m locking in March 31, 2022.

I am also a league statistician for the National Basketball League of Canada, and have been for the past decade. Which makes March 31, 2022 a very special day for me. This year, the NBL Canada will play…Read More
