NYN Throwdown: Seiler v. Lovett

Email share


After an arduous and seemingly never-ending election season, we decided to have a little fun.

Welcome to the the inaugural "NYN Throwdown" where two movers and shakers from the Capitol go head-to-head in an Empire State-themed quiz show.  For our inaugral matchup, two longtime reporters square off.  Friends and fellow bureau chiefs Casey Seiler (New York NOW and the Times Union) and Ken Lovett (New York Daily News) battle for bragging rights while trying to figure out which current state senator used to be an usher at the old Buffalo Memorial Auditorium and who can name a former lieutenant by listening to the word "um."
