I put together a little poem (below) in honor of Greg's dipping in the WRAL fountain back in February 2005. I sent it to your previous anchor John Bachman, a friend of mine, who passed it on to Greg. I recently found the poem and have attached it for you to read and enjoy to help celebrate Greg's 30 years at WRAL.. Please feel free to use for your Fish Celebration. It was fun watching the "Fish" Flounder in the Fountain!!!!!
Congratulations Greg on 30 years of predicting good and bad weather for us all!!!
“FISH” IN THE FOUNTAIN
DATE: MARCH 2, 2005
WE HAVE A WEATHERMAN KNOWN AS “THE FISH”.
COLD, SNOWY WEATHER IS HIS FAVORITE DISH.
HE MADE A BET THAT WE WOULD HAVE ACCUMULATION,
DIDN’T HAPPEN-- SO NOW IT’S HIS HUMILIATION.
ON FEBRUARY 28 EVERYONE FROM NEAR AND FAR,
CAME TO SEE THIS EVENT WITH OUR LOCAL TV STAR.
BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THIS MOLEHILL TURNED INTO A MOUNTAIN,
WITH A SMILE AND BUFFETT ATTIRE, “FISH” TOOK A DIP IN THE FOUNTAIN.
