Decision 2010: It's a Blue State after all

Well the voters voted, but the players played and they decided the outcome of this year's rivalry football contest between Saratoga Springs and Shenendehowa.

The Blue Streaks vaulted themselves into the No. 2 spot in the Class AA playoffs and the Plainsmen fell from atop the Empire Division into the No. 3 spot and are now forced to win two road games if they can look to advance to its first Super Bowl appearance since 2004.

Here is the link from the Saratoga at Shen football game along with the link for the video.

Coach Steuerwald was as quiet as I can remember after the contest, not shell-shocked but definitely disappointed with the outcome, the missed opportunity and already thinking about the next two weeks on the road. The Plainsmen will first face Shaker, who lost to No. 1 Liberty Division champion Troy. If successful on Friday night, Shenendehowa would be on the road on Saturday at Troy. (Yes, I am taking Troy this weekend over CBA).

It looks like Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barrett dodged a bullet, or at least a Blue Streak jersey after Saratoga Springs mayor Scott Johnson didn't take him up on the offer of a jersey wager on the contest. Mayor Johnson didn't want to add any more distractions to his city council meetings so declined the initial wager, but he did add "Phil better be careful for what he wishes for."

Looks like the mayor will at least retain bragging rights for now.
