Sean wrote a blog yesterday about how wimpy of a snow season we had last season that Burlington Vermont had more snow than Syracuse did which means they had more snow than all of the Golden Snowball cities did. I’ve mentioned several times how I appreciate Sean’s skills at journalism and he has a gazillion awards to prove it. Anyways with his normal style and his pride in our contest and more so in the snow that Syracuse gets. Sean pretty much put out the challenge to any big city in the United States and better yet to North America with a few words and just by posting a video of MC Hammer in the post he made. I love It! Check it out at http://www.syracuse.com/kirst/ . Of course now the songa has been stuck in my head since yesterday. After watching Syracuse beat #18 Florida last night as I sang the song to myself I’m hoping I will be singing it again tonight as we take on Kansas. Da,na,na,na – na,na-na,na Can’t Touch This, da,na,na,na -. OK, I’m sure you all get the point 😉
We may have a problem though because it’s looking like Binghamton and Rochester aren’t even close to backing off of the hopes to dethrone Syracuse to win the trophy of all trophy’s, the Golden Snowball Trophy which the last I heard has been sitting in Dennis Brogan’s office for the last several years. Ever since A-1 trophy donated it when the contest was resurrected again. By now Dennis has probably gotten so fond of it he probably has it by his night stand at home
Anyways while some of us weren’t paying attention yesterday Rochester snuck in 1.5 inches of snow and Binghamton slipped in 3.4 inches of white gold to jump into second place. Can’t Touch this. Oh they do want to touch this, the GSB trophy that is and with the start we have had so far in November I think the golden snowball award will be up for grabs for any of the cities. Well at least 4 of them anyways and looking at the stats with all of us over last seasons totals already I think this will go right down to the last snow flake again. Just like last season did.
For you snow haters out there (hard to believe any exist) don’t be blaming me on this early snow this season. I haven’t done a snow dance and I don’t think anyone else has which leaves only one other person to blame. That would be NYCO!!! Nyco better know as Ellen I believe is the caretaker of the Snow God and she mentioned that the Snow God has already been awoken from his/her spring and summer hibernation which was on October 28th. I wonder if Ellen got a new sled, skis or something to perform this earlier than normal awakening of the Almighty Snow God? Check out NYCO’s site at http://www.twentyfour01.com/nyco/
Have a Great Day Everyone and take it slow.
