In just their 2nd season in the AFL, our Albany Empire have won the Arena Bowl! The game was held at The Times Union Center, which seems like an unfair advantage for us but oh well. It's the 1st Arena Bowl championship in the 518 since The Albany Firebirds played here 20 years ago.
This is pretty amazing for the area because now we have a great Minor League baseball team in the Tri City Valley Cats and now a championship Arena Football team! What's even better is that my youngest daughter was able to dance for the team this past season as a part of their "Junior Empress" team. Another awesome thing that the organization does for the area. I love the fact that the team is so involved with the community!
Here's the magic moment when the clock ran down and the team became champions!
