Earlier on AOA: Albany is eggcellent everywhere


I just might be in love. But how can they not be the "Ithaca is Gorges" people?

Bethlehem is Heaven. Bethlehem: birthplace of Jesus

Imagine having Albany is Eggcellent in red ink on a yellow shirt.

Yes, imagine looking like a hotdog.

That aside, this is pretty awesome. The Herkimer shirt is quite clever.

Unfortunately, they don't have the "Utica is Meh" shirt I was looking for...

I so wish the Albany is eggcellent came in womens t. Every other one does BUT that one.

Chuck, you are awesome.

I rocked my Schenectady is Electrifying shirt in D.C. and always got tons of comments. Glad to see this shirt shop is back!

@ Carrie - I was thinking the same thing - I would have already ordered it if is was in the women's cut.

Still, it is eggcellent that it's back at all.

Too funny Chuck...nice to know Utica ranks below Binghampton, Seneca Falls and Herkimer. Believe it or not, there is stuff to choose from - the brewery, the Gold Dome, Roscoe Conkling, Ed Hanna, etc...

If they every make a t-shirt of The Egg hatching and Godzilla coming out of it, I'd buy two.

Funny that I just happened to be wearing my older "Schenectady is Electrifying" shirt as I read this and I'm very glad to know they're making a comeback. The only people who could actually read it in Alabama where I now live, were from either the Capital District or somewhere nearby. But I've met several other Schenectadians and Upstaters due to wearing the shirt and I'll be ordering some in the next few days!!
