valley cats playoff logo 2012

Drawing's closed! Winner's been emailed!

The ValleyCats are in the New York Penn League playoffs and they're facing the Auburn Doubledays Saturday night at the The Joe. (It's game two of the first round series -- game one is at Auburn Friday night.) We have a four-pack of tickets for the playoffs that also includes food vouchers -- and we're giving them away, maybe to you.

To enter, please answer this question in the comments:

Who is the Capital Region's MVP?

We'll pick one winner at random. That person will get a package that includes four tickets to each of the four possible ValleyCats home playoff games, plus vouchers for each person to get:

+ 1 beer or soda
+ 1 hot dog
+ 1 bag of chips
+ 1 ice cream sundae

The game on Saturday is at 7 pm. Game 3, if needed, will be Sunday at 5 pm. There's a possibility of two more ValleyCats home games next week, too, if they advance. The four-game playoff ticket pack starts at $19.50.

Important: All comments must be submitted by noon on Friday, September 7, 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) with your comment. The winner will be notified via email by 1 pm on Friday and must respond by 5 pm that same day.

MVP? Hard to say. The people who have done the most for the Capital Region are strangers to me. The people who have done the most for me are strangers to you.

Just kidding...it's William Kennedy.

The Meter Maids in Albany. The speed in which they write tickets after your meter has expired is Usain Bolt fast.

salt trucks, snow plows... maybe even street sweepers. makes me so happy when they've come by my house.

Jack McEneny - he's the Capital Region's biggest cheerleader!

Kirsten Gillibrand

William K. Sanford

Steve Caporizzo. (Really? No one said this yet?)

He tells all the wives-who-are-teachers there'll be no school, and at least some of the time he's right! It's amusing to watch him get so excited/grave when there is bad weather coming.

Eddie Money, obviously.
