Yankees, Red Sox, and Mets fans in the Albany area all know that this part of the country is one of the most interesting in terms of baseball fanhood. Being close to both Boston and New York City, it is common to find fans of all three teams everywhere you look. Unfortunately, that also means putting up with the fans of the two teams that you don't root for and, man, can these three fan bases be insufferable.
Brittney Griner continues to elevate her game during her senior year at Baylor. Last night in a second round NCAA Tournament win over Florida State she put up 33 points, 22 rebounds and 4 blocks as her team won by 38 points. At this point, the college game is too easy for her.
Also becoming easier for Griner has been dunking the basketball, as she has increased her career dunk total on numerous occasions over the last couple of weeks.
Florida Gulf Coast has enjoyed an unprecedented level of success in this year's NCAA Tournament in becoming the first 15 seed in the history of the competition to advance to the Sweet 16. They have done so by absolutely shaming both Georgetown and San Diego State, with a variety of high flying dunks and more swag than a Young Money video.
They also have a music video of their own now, as they have been immortalized in a remix of Tyga's 'Rack City,' renamed 'Dunk City' in honor of the soaring Eagles of FGCU.
UAlbany women's basketball enjoyed unprecedented success this season, including an perfect season in America East play and an NCAA Tournament berth. It nearly culminated in a historic upset, but the 14th seeded Great Danes fell to 3 seed North Carolina in today's NCAA Tournament first round game.
LeBron James has been playing some of the best basketball the world has ever seen recently, helping his Miami Heat reach 24 straight wins with a dramatic comeback victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers last night. He has also unveiled a new celebratory dance move over the last few nights.
President Barack Obama is back on ESPN for another four years of his Barack-etology segment, in which he fills out his NCAA Tournament bracket with Andy Katz. This marks the first time that President Obama has been in office for a UAlbany Great Danes NCAA Tournament appearance, making this the perfect time for him to pick our local team to pull off the ultimate upset.
WWE play-by-play announcer, and I use that term loosely, Jim Ross has become the center of an awesome phenomenon recently. People have been using his voice to dub over some of the best plays in sports. First, it was DeAndre Jordan's dunk over Brandon Knight. Now it's LeBron James' dunk over Jason Terry.
LeBron James had quite a night for the Miami Heat, changing the momentum of their game against the Boston Celtics with a thunderous alley oop dunk, then hitting the game winning shot to push the Heat's winning streak to 23 games.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are currently locked up in a tight game with the Boston Celtics, with their 22 game winning streak on the line. Boston was up big earlier, but Miami closed the gap with plays like this ridiculous alley oop from Norris Cole to LeBron James in the second quarter.
After a 27-3 season that included an 18-0 mark in America East play en route to a conference title, the UAlbany Great Danes women's basketball team has earned a 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will play North Carolina in Newark, Delaware on Sunday at 2:30 p.m..
Coming into Selection Sunday, the Albany Great Danes were unsure as to where they were going to be playing and as what seed. Now they know, as the selection committee has chosen them as a 15 seed and the opponent of the 2 seed Duke Blue Devils in Philadelphia in the midwest region.
By now you know that the UAlbany Great Danes are going dancing. You also know that they had to beat Vermont to get there. And from those two things, you can probably infer that Great Danes fans went nuts once they got the job done, as evidenced by this fan shot video of the celebration.
