Tony Cavalier: The Hardest Working Man in Weather
This evening's 6:00 weathercast opened with video of a towboat heading up the Ohio River through the dense fog that set in today. Voiceover Tony (singing): "Dashing through the fog, In a one horse open barge, o'er the Ohio we go, splashing all the way..." and he proceeds to sing an entire verse of this "Jingle Bells" parody. Then, when the singing's over, he spends another 20 seconds explaining to the viewers what he meant.
I'm gonna have to get a TV card so I can capture his daily quirkiness. Much of it is simply beyond my ability to explain.
