Did I enjoy Star Trek: Discovery? Yes and no…

My Star Trek fandom is – well – balanced.  If I enjoy a TV series, I’ll watch it from start to finish and over and over again.  Loved the original series.  Loved Next Generation. Even loved Voyager. But after one season of Star Trek: Discovery, the new Star Trek iteration on my CBS All Access…

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…

Business Wars, Dirty Money and American Greed: The Schadenfreude of Corporate America

I do enjoy a good documentary now and again … especially ones that expose the seamier, grittier side of corporations, businesses and organizations. Which is why I’ve started following a new podcast, and have recently binge-watched a new Netflix documentary series.  Oh yeah, and I’m waiting for new episodes of an old CNBC favorite. Let…

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…

Yesterday was the 14th annual Capital District “Trivia Bowl,” one of five different championship trivia tournaments on my 2018 schedule.  Guess you could call it a different type of “Competition Season” for me. Nearly forty teams arrived at Wolf’s 1-11 for the big event.  For my team, I had a grouping of various players from…
