Bragging Rights and The Golden Snowball Trophy
Both the bragging rights and the Golden Snowball trophy are still up for grabs but the days are numbered now for Rochester and Buffalo to steal it away from Syracuse. Looking at the upcoming forecasts it looks like 50 degree weather might be around with a hit or miss here and there. Right now it's a gorgeous Spring day with plenty of sunshine and the temps hovering around 50 degrees.
Just a little reminder of what all the cities haven't seen except for Syracuse in their city since the Golden Snowball contest was resurrected along with a free plug for channel 9 news.

Right now it's still just a matter of 4 inches keeping it sitting in Dennis Brogan's office in the city of Syracuse. Personally I think Dennis might be getting a bit too attached to it by now and it may be time to give it up. On the other hand I haven't talked to Dennis in quite some time but the way he sounded when I last spoke to him is that when/if Syracuse loses the bragging rights they will find a fun way to deliver it to the winning city. The big question is will it be this snow season or will that have to wait another season.
Personally I have mixed feelings about Syracuse losing the bragging rights to the contest along with the Golden Snowball trophy. It's fun when people talk about how much snow Buffalo gets blowing off Syracuse and Rochester and being able to say to them that the Trophy has resided in Syracuse for the past several years. On the other hand I think it would make the contest a bit more exciting and fun to see it leave the city of Syracuse. Only for 1 snow season that is. With that said all I can say is "Good Luck" to Rochester and Buffalo down the home stretch. I'm pulling for you, sort of!
Have a great day all and Good Luck to the Syracuse Chiefs this season who start their baseball season with a home opener today.
