Five Albany Area Celebrities We Would Love To See As Pirates
The Albany area has some pretty great local celebrities that are beloved, and sometimes hated, by the people in the area. Being that we are odd and always thinking of the craziest of scenarios we started to imagine what some of our favorite local guys would be like if they were pirates. You know, the whole seven seas and treasure thing. So lets imagine, shall we?
In a way, Joe Bruno might already be a pirate. His 2009 indictment saw that his senate office was ridiculously corrupt. So he's already good at the whole taking advantage of people thing. He used his high power to gain money – treasure – before the State could. We just hope he buried it somewhere.
If Rachael Ray were a pirate, she may be the most bubbly pirate of all time. Though she is pretty famous these days, lets not forget that she got her start right here in Upstate, NY. If you were a member of her crew, you would not go hungry, and possibly be eating some of the best pirate grool around. YUMO! Did we really just say that?
Mayor Jerry Jennings
It seems as though Mayor Jennings will never not be the Mayor of Albany. Sounds pretty pirate like to us. So what is this power he has over the city? Is it fear? No. Maybe the only way to take him down is mutiny? Either way, he looks like he's been off at sea with that wonderful orange glow of his.
That's right, the patriotic mascot of our great country got his start right here in the Albany area. Troy to be precise. Being that the legend originated right near a river, it's only fitting that he could be a pirate, right? And lets be honest, how cool would Uncle Sam look with a pirate captains hat and an eye patch?
Yolanda Vega is the only thing between us, and the winning lotto numbers. In that sense, she seems like she guarding a pretty sweet buried treasure. With that being said, she might be the best candidate for being a pirate. Plus, we already know that she's loud enough to be heard by her whole crew.
