Why Was Empire Chosen As The Albany Arena Team Name?
Each Wednesday at 4 p.m., Levack and I discuss the most confusing sports stories in a segment simply called "WHY?!". It could be a coaching decision, a team, a player movement or something else. Each week we are presented with a story that has happened in the past week in sports and we have to figure out why the event has occurred. Although the concept of the segment sounds simple, it truly is much harder to come to a conclusion on the topics.
This week we tried to figure out why the "Empire" was chosen as the new nickname for the Albany arena football team. Why did LeBron James congratulate himself on scoring thirty thousand career points? Why is Siena basketball not considering a move to the Atlantic 10 conference? Why does Josh Allen want to rescue the Cleveland Browns? Why does Diddy want Janet Jackson to return to perform at this year's Super Bowl? Levack and Goz answer those questions and more in this week's edition of Wednesday Why below.
