It's O-Fishel! 30 years of absolute pleasure in watching you provide the weather forecasts, the puns, and the die hard loyalty to Penn State and the Mets.

You have definitely influenced everyone in the viewing area and beyond to excel. Oh, I also thought you were such an inspiration to the young folks as the Brain Game host as well.

I always felt more comfortable even in very severe weather events due to your acumen, passion for what you do, compassion for your audience, and your energy level. You are truly ours and a delightful "one of a kind."
