The Eradicator.

The drawing is now closed. Congrats to Barry.

We'll keep this simple and quick: Monster Jam is at the TU Center this weekend. It's big trucks driving over stuff and crushing things. We have four tickets for Friday night's display of destruction, and we're giving them away.

To enter the drawing, tell us in the comments:

What would you like to crush?

It could be anything, so go for it (but normal commenting guidelines apply). We'll draw one winner at random. That person gets the tickets and some Monster Jam swag: a checkered flag, pennant, and a toy-version of one of the trucks.

Monster Jam is Friday and Saturday night at the TU Center at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 and up (there are also some $10 kids tickets).

Important: All comments must be submitted by 9:30 am on Friday, January 18, 2013 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 10 am on Friday and must respond by 1 pm that day (yep, it's a quick turn around).


Assault rifles. I'd like to crush them all up. Maybe make some plowshares outta them.

One of those gas guzzling Hummers. These energy hogs don't have any place on our roads.

Prii, hundreds and hundreds of Prii (the hybrid car)

I would like to crush a 12 pack of Crush soda while watching cars get crushed at Monster Jam!

I'd like to Crush a dozen wings and two 90 min IPA's at the RUCK. I'd like to crush them right now. Feeling hungry and in need of a quick buzz.

I'd like to crush the two people (and their cars) that nearly caused accidents yesterday morning in the snowstorm by traveling on the highways at a dangerous 20 mph.... caused me and a few other cars around to slam on their brakes and pray to god we didn't lose control as we had to maneuver around them.

If you are that scared, don't be on the Northway and Alt 7 at 6am!

Of course, Kids in the Hall comes to mind with: "I'm crushing your head! I'm crushing your head! Crush! Crush!"

Crush Interstate 787!!!!

My inability to refer to the Times Union Center as anything other than the Knick.

I would like to crush my neighbors car when she decides to park it in front of my driveway so she can shovel hers. It's awesome. Thanks lady.

MY ENEMIES!!! and rule the world.


This isn't a comment intended to win tickets (though, for the record, I want to crush my enemies...), it's a question about the monster truck event itself. Has anyone been recently who can comment on the fumes inside the TU Center? I went to a motocross/monster truck event there probably 10 years ago and the exhaust fumes were horrendous - instant headache. I want to take my son, but I can't subject him (and myself) to fumes like that.

New York property taxes.

I'd like to crush lima beans.

The meter maid's vehicle in Center Square!!

I want to crush the CPA exam.

I'd like to crush some ice for rainbow sno-cones.

I want to crush cars, and trucks. Specifically, the ones that leave their fronts or backs in front of my driveway. Please don't send me tickets, even though my wish is totally legitimate.

dilapidated houses in downtown Albany; either fix them up or crush them!

tomatoes for some pasta sauce later on today!

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...

Good neighborhoods for trick-or-treating?
