The 2008 Empire State Games run from July 23-27 in Binghamton. We'll have a lot of local people participating.
As has become something of a tradition here at the Journal, we will publish 30 profiles of local ESG athletes — one a day — for the 30 days leading up to Opening Ceremonies.
Here's the catch. I'm no math wizard, but I was able to figure out using a giant-sized calendar that in order to make these profiles work, I need to start publishing them on June 24. ESG rosters won't be released until probably July 7.
Do you see my dilemma here? We need about half of the profile subjects to come to us by word of mouth. So open your mouth and tell me who we should profile. Once the rosters are made public, I won't have a problem, but right now I do have a problem and you have to help me solve it.
You have to.
