Being a sports fan in upstate New York means that you have to travel a long distance to see teams in the four major sports leagues (baseball, basketball, football, and hockey).
Your favorite teams may be from the opposite ends of New York state, from New York City up to Buffalo. Maybe you cheer on a team that you backed when you were young, or from where you grew up (I’m looking at you, Boston and Philadelphia fans who now live in upstate New York).
Just because the teams you see on television aren’t right around the corner doesn’t mean you can’t find a great game or sporting event in upstate New York. Here’s a guide to some of the games, competitions, tournaments, and cool places to go for the true sports fan.
I spent 25 years practicing medicine as a cardiologist. During that time, I liked to believe that my patients listened when I recommended they lose weight or quit smoking, took their medications as prescribed, and for all intents and purposes, followed doctor’s orders.

Quitting the gym isn’t normally a good thing – unless you quit the gym to join CDPHP Fitness Connect. For Lauren Bailey, quitting her paid, traditional gym and joining Fitness Connect not only gave her a better workout experience, it also saved her about $1,500 per year.
Being new to a gym can be intimidating. When you walk in, it’s easy to feel out of place, or unsure about where to begin. If this sounds familiar, a group exercise class may be a great place to start to put you on the path to meeting your fitness goals!
