Albany Patroons 127, Vancouver Knights 100, and it wasn’t even THAT close!

A few things about last night’s game.  The Albany Patroons pounded Vancouver, at one point the Pats were up by 30, 35 points … en route to a 127-100 beat-down of the visiting squad. This is fun. It’s also fun when Jamario Moon gets an assist from Smush Parker and takes it in for a…

Albany Patroons beat Rochester 118-107, new scoreboard, new Moon, same results!

The first thing I noticed when I visited the Armory on Sunday afternoon for Albany’s home game against Rochester wss the Armory’s new scoreboard.  And it’s an amazing looking scoreboard.  It’s a digital screen that has running advertisements on the side, as well as the opportunity to play promotional commercials and video clips.  Sweet. The…

Albany Patroons 110, Rochester RazorSharks 95 – and an amazing reunion!

A few things to understand.  I’m really, really digging the Albany Patroons’ return to the Capital District.  And after last night’s game against the winless – and still winless – Rochester RazoarSharks, I’m smiling like the Joker. Plus – there was a nice reunion of sorts. Let me explain. I’ve written in the past about…

Albany Patroons 117, Rochester 99, Chuck happy

It was almost as if I never left. On a frost-numbing Saturday night, I attended my first Albany Patroons game in nine years.  Of course, it was also the Patroons’ first game in nine years, but that’s semantics. And with a courtside ticket in my hand, I had an amazing time watching the gold and…

So can I get excited about the new Albany Patroons team?

And when I heard news…
