Breaking News about The General

I was checking out some sites looking for some snow pictures and I came across one that caught my attention. Not a snow picture or anything like that. It's a picture of our own favorite General Steve. A cute picture no doubt with Stevo holding a fish but it's what he is wearing that caught my attention more than his catch of the day. At first glance I didn't even notice it but then it caught my eye. Buffalo Steve is wearing an SU shirt. A Syracuse shirt. Is that even allowed in Buffalo after being spanked 4 years in a row in the Golden Snowball contest by Syracuse. All I can say is that I hope there aren't any pictures of me in a Buffalo Bills shirt around from the past. All in fun of course and it's nice to see Steve is a Syracuse fan

For all you snow forecasters out there I wanted to let you know that there is a contest going on at . Below is the info on the contest. Unfortunately Syracuse and their fake lake effect snow isn't in the contest but it still sounds like a fun contest and The General finished first in the Rookie class last year.

No problem TQ. The bill is in the mail ;p I'm joking of course. I added two links to your site in my post but for some reason it didn't take. I'll see what the problem is and fix it now.

You are one little bugger patrick. Of course you post a picture of me not only wearing a syracuse shirt, but you find me holding a little dinky fish.

1. I wear the SU shirt not to support Syracuse, but because it is the only the shirt in my closet I don't mind getting dirty and covered in fish guts...

2. I was fishing the eastern bank of the genny, which technically puts me in Rochester country and out of the eyes of watchful Buffalo.

3. Where in the hell is all the dang snow???

4. Thanks for reminding me about the newx contest, the rookie of the year last season almost forgot to enter.

5. No more shamless walmart plugs... PLEASE!

6. I'll be posting something soon enough, maybe some fun weather can intice me!

Hmmm General!!! Wearing an SI shirt and fishing in Rochester??? Was that after breakfast in Binghamton :p As for the fish you were holding, please tell me that was bait you were using to fish with, lol.

As for snow it looks like this could be the week that the snow machine really gets going doesn't it? Although we haven't had a lot of snow so far this season it has snowed more days than last year for most of the cities.

As for Walmart, not that anyone shops through here but if someone does it can at least maybe pay for the web hosting. 3 kids in college now :)

We all look forward to your witty, knowledgeable posts Steve and hopefully some white motivation is right around the corner. Good Luck this year in TQ's contest. If I can find the time I might get into it myself.
