There will be 6,000 athletes and plenty more spectators converging on Westchester in less than two weeks time.
And needless to say, you can follow all the action from home or work, by keeping it right here at LoHud.com.
In addition to getting updates on the latest news and developments, you can also weigh in on what’s going on as it unfolds by visiting our brand-new Empire State Games blog that just launched moments ago. There are links to previously published stories related to the Games from our high school sports blogs, as well as some more info I just posted on the July 25 opening ceremonies, including a conversation I had yesterday with ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap, who will be the keynote speaker at the ceremonies.
“Here’s the link”:http://esgames.lohudblogs.com/ to the new blog. Be sure to check it out and post comments there as well.
