Dear Diary: Another fun-filled, filing Friday

It was a full plate for my Friday, but it was all worth it. An early stop at The Saratogian, a break for job No. 2 and then back for a full night of posting, copying, pasting, Twittering, Facebooking, etc. So I'm not that hard to find after all...

I was happy to bring back our Sports Talk box and added video to the Community News. I hope it doesn't loose steam. The Shenendehowa boys ice hockey team weighed in on the NHL's new All-Star plan. I think it's a great idea and would like to see interest remain in it at 

It wouldn't be a complete week without honoring our Athletes of the Week. This was another Spartan doubleheader with girls soccer star Bryony Striffler
Along with punishing running back Brandon Beatty at
The most fun, but in all seriousness was working with Shenendehowa ice hockey coach Juan de la Rocha about his cuts for this year's squad at

Boys basketball coach Tony Dzikas has more options for players who may not be ready for the next step, holding a player back in freshman or JV before committing to varsity, but it's still not easy at

 I was also on hand to see the young and old (but not too old) staffers and administrators run in the annual Shenendehowa Veterans Day Dash 5k at

 The week also had two highs with two Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake baseball players signing letters of intent and eight Shenendehowa athletes signing letters in one of the largest signing ceremonies I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. (A shout to fellow Saratogian James Sherrill for all of his video help).

More on that later next week, but actually earlier as a full Saturday awaits me to put all 10 stories together for an early Thanksgiving deadline.
