albany all stars roller derby action

Update: The drawing's closed. Thanks for entering!

AOA has a bunch of tickets for the Albany All Stars bout this Saturday (10 pairs, to be exact). And we'd like to give them to you.

The Empire Skate Troopers are taking on the Queen City Roller Girls at the Washington Ave Armory in the AASRD's last bout of the season. It should be a fun time. Tickets are $10 ($12 at the door). The first whistle is at 7 pm.

Here's how you could go for free.

It's easy. Post a comment answering this question:

What's your favorite sports team?

This could be any team in any sport, at any level. It could be a major league baseball club, a college team or a World Cup side. Whatever. The team could even be fictional.

We'll pick 10 winners at random. The deadline to enter is 3 pm Friday!

Very, very important: One entry per person. You must answer the question to be eligible. You must post your comment by 3 pm on Friday June 17, 2010. You must include a working email address (that you check regularly) with your comment. The winner will be notified by email by 4 pm that Friday -- and must respond by 6 pm that same day.

Yep, AOA is an AASRD media sponsor.

My favorite sports team is the Syracuse men's basketball team. They are the only team that I enjoy watching in person AND on tv.
(ie: love going to Yankee games but don't like seeing them on YES. I also had a lot of fun at the Albany All Star bout a couple weeks ago, but I don't think derby would translate to tv, either!)

Uh, the Albany All Stars, obviously.

Texas Longhorns, without a doubt. Hook 'em Horns!

Yankees all the way!

New Orleans Saints

born and raised in LA and they finally got a championship

bad news bears. yes, fictional but really who doesn't love a ragamuffin team sponsored by bail bonds? seriously.

Can I say the Albany youth soccer league's Mr. Ding-A-Ling team? I don't think they've won a game all year, but there are some awesome second-graders in that squad.


@Cecelia -- pshaw :) Go Frogs.

At least we can probably agree we both hate the Aggies?

The Albany All-Stars are honestly the only sports team for which I've ever actively tried to attend a game (much less all the home games!). By extension, Merry Pain and Scarlet O'Hackya are my favorite athletes.

Yankees, It reminds of my dad and growing up

The Yankees of course! Who doesn't love the cute shortstop? ;)

Spirits of Troy (Spring Youth Little League Team)
Their season ended early but they gave it a try.

my fav. sports team is my 10 yr. old nephews little league team, the "reds" They aren't the best in twin town, but it's still fun to watch his games.

Well, since you said it could be fictional, I'll bite. The Gryffindor Quidditch team.

Red Sox (yes, I know I live in Upstate NY).

My favorite team is the Albany All Star Roller Derby Girls!!! I met them at Lark's Tavern months ago when they were doing a fundraiser - a friendlier, cooler group there never was... Secret: I don't know how to roller skate, but I want to learn so I can be on their team!

Has been and will always be the Albany Patroons.

Wow, all US-based? Well, Liverpool FC for me; only football club anyone in my family has supported for at least three generations.

the red sox!

"Unnamed" Men's Roller Derby team..

I like the RCS Indians high school football team (Ravena, NY baby - wooo!)

I know somebody already said this, but I agree....

My beloved Albany Patroons...

Just something about being in the Armory, Phil Jackson, the 'Patties' (way better than the Emeralds) and Jim Coyne.
The fantastic spirit of the crowd back in the 80's....Those were the days.

AASRD!

My favorite team is the Kilkenny Hurling Team!

The 1969 NY Mets. During the series, born and raised in the Bronx, I was in the Army - in the woods at Fort Bragg, North Carolina - no TV - bummer. P.S. Woodstock happened when I was in Basic Training - Fort Leonard Wood Missouri. 1969 - not my most memorable year.

Notre Dame! My dad went to school there and when I was growing up we used to watch every game on TV together on Saturdays. I continue to watch every game (with and without my dad) to this day.

U.S. World Cup! Go Yanks, beat the Slovenes!!!

boston bruins. hockey represent.

I am a one sport person and an oddball one at that - World Cup Downhill Mountain bike racing (hey hey! World Cup finals coming to Windham, NY at the end of August!!!)

While it's essentially an individual sport, I am a fan of the Santa Cruz Bicycles Syndicate team - the winning efforts of Steve Peat (UK) and Greg Minnar (S. Africa) over the years have been huge, and Peat has come over much adversity/injuries/the usual UK bad teeth jokes to pull out many wins including last years World Championships. In addition, young "dude" John Bryceland (UK) has some amazing riding talents that will pay off in the years to come.

The World Cups only come to America once every 5 years, so check 'em out one hour south of Albany at the end of Aug.

The Mighty Ducks.

I love AASRD, but I've got to go with my derby team, The Hellions of Troy! :D

I'm going to have to say the Clown Punchers from "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story". Any team that show hostility towards those soul-stealing face-painters get my full support.

My favorite sports team is the Gryffindor Quidditch team from Harry Potter!!! haha

Chicago Bears!!

red sox

Well, I guess since I'm more of a book person than a sports person, and someone already said Quidditch, I'll go obscure and say Kay's House cricket team. P.G. Wodehouse FTW.

the pin pals. hands down- homer simpson....

Manchester United! Glory, glory Man United!

Only the Globo Gym Pruple Cobras are bested by Average Joe's and they're awesome, albeit temporary, S&M uniforms. See ya'll this weekend. Free tix or not!

My favorite team is the Siena Saints. I had them pegged to win the NCAA championship AND the NBA finals this year.

My favorite would have to be the Hellions of Troy Roller Derby, but AASRD is a close second! :)

The Skate-o-Masochists!

NY Rangers! BTW - we were planning on going to this anyway - it will be our first bout! (Bout is the right word, right? I want my vocabulary correct before I go!)

The Racine Peaches! "We're the members of the All-American League, we come from cities near and far..."

Albany Patroons

thank you, all over albany! you guys have been such great sponsors this season! a.a.s.r.d. is looking forward to working with you again next year. :)

The Utica Clubbers! But AASRD is pretty cool too :)

Albany All Stars and Boston Bruins. Can't pick just one!

Mets!!! Go Mets!!!

RPI Women's Rugby!!

So tough to choose just one, but I will go with the one I have been rooting for the longest - Notre Dame Fighting Irish

My nephew's T-ball team.

Da' Bears da' bears da' bears... Chicago Bears

Pine City, MN Dragons 7th grade girls softball (only sports team I've been on)

Probably to late for me to get on board, but hey why not.

Fav sports team would be Buffalo Sabres was the River Rats but they left

There is zen-like ritual to using and maintaining a straight razor, especially one that has over 100 years of history behind it. I highly recommend it.
