We had a great time getting away from the NY political mess and into the Times Union Arena for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Tournament final. The seats that we were given were mid-court in the second row just behind the ESPN2 guys calling the game.
It was fun to be in the midst of tournament tension, sights and sounds. It was a very close game during the first half, but 9 3-point shots made by Siena helped them pull away from Rider and win a spot in the NCAA Tournament. The Saints are one of 3 local teams likely to be dancin’… UAlbany’s Danes could be there, and the Saint Rose Golden Knights have already earned a spot in the Div II tourney. It’s fun to see local teams do well. (you can see the photos full sized by clicking on them, they’re not great quality, but it gives an idea of the atmosphere)
