An angry bar owner is calling for a boycott of ESPN and an apology after one analyst trashed Albany, and he's not alone.

One of the most historic games in the history of women's NCAA basketball took place in the state capital on Monday, April 1. More than 12 million people tuned in, the most ever, to watch Iowa take on LSU.

Moments before the end of the game ESPN announcer Rebecca Lobo took the "Shot Heard Round The Capital" when she said, "Good luck finding something to do in Albany."
