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."

Comments

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!

... As has been pointed out, the high peaks, especially the eastern zone, suffers from a lot of overuse. Those really concerned about impact may want to consider visiting other areas, though that might make it busier in some of my favorite spots... there are other places in the ADKs and Catskills with just as much challenge and reward as any high peak, and so much to see and do other than summits.
