Empire State Games are Back in Town!!!

Hey everyone! RICH YOUR SPORTSCASTER once again (I know you all are getting tired of me but I love to chat so much). I cannot believe it is that time of the year again and time for the 30th NYS Empire State Games. Yes, this coming weekend February 19th through the 21st, all different kinds of youth athletes and adults will participating in a myriad of Olympic Style Events. (I have goosebumps from the excitement this brings to the area!) Seeing that the actual Olympics are taking place as I am typing, this would be a great time if you could not make it to Vancouver, to see all the great events in Lake Placid site of the 1980 Olympics!!!


This would include alpine skiing at Whiteface Mountain. At the Ski Jumping Complex they will strutting their aerial skills and ski jumping prowess. (would not catch me in a million years jumping off the jump. ouch that would hurt). There will be at the Olympic Center figure skaters jumping and spinning, also, hockey players passing the ole puck around. Do not forget the exciting bobsled and luge action out at Mount Van Hovenberg and X-country skiing!

All of this will start with Opening Ceremonies on Friday Feb 19th at 6:00 pm leading to all the great action on Saturday. You will not want to miss all of this fun and entertainment as some of the aspiring athletes from all over NY state compete for gold. (if only I had started sooner, I might have reached that gold medal status…ahh a man can dream! lol).

Time to hit the road and hope to see everyone around this coming weekend for the Empire State Games. BYE!
