Andrew Cuomo, in the paint

Paul Grondahl's profile of the Mario/Andrew Cuomo relationship covers a lot of the same ground as prior articles. But there are some new bits about AC's time at Albany Law, among them: his intramural basketball team was called "Gonads," he drank at the Elbo Room on Delaware, and kept "a fairly energetic social schedule."


Hmmmm, Gonads? That questionable.

Historically, many intramural teams have named themselves the "Nads," so that their rooting section will yell out "Go Nads!" at games.

"Go Gonads" doesn't work.

What proper Albanian hasn't spent some quality time at ye olde Elbo Room during their misspent youth? Cheers and wings to you, Andrew!

When it gets cold, anything warm and comforting hits the spot, but my favorite local food to turn to is the mac and cheese and avocado fries from Slidin' Dirty- nothing beats that!
