The new season for the Hellions of Troy Roller Derby starts this Saturday. The Hellions will be throwing down with the Assault City Roller Derby from Syracuse.*

We have five pairs of tickets for the bout. And we're giving them away. Maybe to you.

To enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:

What's your favorite thing about spring?

We'll pick five winners at random.

The Hellions bout starts at 8 pm at the Rollarama in Schenectady. Tickets are $10 ahead / $12 at the door ($3 for kids 12 and under).

*Syracuse is the Salt City, so... right... see you what they did there. It's much better than the Syracuse Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Important: All comments must be submitted by noon on Tuesday (March 13, 2012) to be entered in the drawing. You must answer the question to be part of the drawing. One entry per person, please. You must enter a valid email address (that you check regularly -- seriously, if you win, we want to give you the tickets) with your comment. The winners will be notified via email by 5 pm on Tuesday and must respond by noon on Wednesday (March 14).

The weather!

Daffodils. They will be blooming soon with this weather!

The air. I find myself feeling much more alive when I take a deep breath of that fresh spring air. It is like breathing the world into me and feeling part of this infinite universe. It awakens my soul and opens my heart. Also, walking around Albany and seeing people smile or acknowledge each other. Finally, all the great festivals right around the corner!

I'm going to answer this question through interpretive dance

as the laundry doer in the house, spring means less sweaters to wash. Sweaters take up a lot of space in the wash. Add the complex drying instructions and laundry is a PITA. Come summer, I can get the laundry done in half the loads.

BAR-BEE-QUE

Unrelated to what I love about spring; that Ryan Rose guy sounds like a dirty hippy.

My favorite thing about spring is how, once it starts to warm up, you see more people outside and everyone seems to smile a little more. It's contagious.

Country Drive-in opening!

Spring: that time of year when the all your best outside food and ice cream places start to open up for your personal enjoyment.Lets go on a "road trip" thru out the Capital District.

My favorite things about Spring are march madness, the masters, and the start of the baseball season.

thunderstorms.

The smell of old leaves decomposing and the sight of new leaves budding.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
