Craig and his wonderful list

craigslist carved gorilla headThe good thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations. The bad thing about Craigslist: It's a window into our fellow community members' wants, needs and aspirations.

Yes, while you're at it, could you please provide time and dates for all your unsavory conduct. With photo ID.

He's hoping she was looking because she liked him, not because he was on a cringe-moment date.

Wanted: female best friend, must be prompt.

Wanted: female dart thrower, must be able to commit.

How long can one guy survive on Max London's, coffee, and free internet?

The good news: your lost iPad still turns on. The bad news: people have been driving over it in the roundabout in Slingerlands.

And apparently the lost pet fox in Troy is named "Cricket."

Seconding the above. Albany Youth Soccer. I played for many years with this organization. Absolutely excellent experience. Good mix of fun and hard work. Very diverse group of kids and coaches. Well organized. Many other kids I knew growing up in Albany played as well. In my opinion this is the integral kids sports experience.
