Sweltering — really

on
It’s always warm upstairs here at the Knick Times Union Center, but it’s especially nasty today. You walk up from the concourse, and the heat just hits you halfway up the stairs. Really. Heat.

Days like this are eerie. Decent enough game, you know you can pick several different angles. And then stuff like the Morency incident happen, and you just don’t want to get up and go downstairs. For as much as you tell yourself “precaution,” you think back to Blaine Down. You hear he may have hit […] [Read More]
