Tonight was “Best of” presentation night from the New Haven Advocate. A lot of you seemed to be surprised right along with me. The secret of my success: getting canned! As mentioned earlier that paid off at the polls!
Geoff Fox got more votes than the combined totals in many categories. He got so many votes we stopped
There was a nice writeup in the Advocate, though it never made it online until tonight. Then I got a note from the Advocate’s publisher Josh Mamis.
Hey, are you going to be available to co-host the awards next Tuesday evening? Chaz and AJ want to kick it off, and leave early because they get up early, so they could hand off to you, or you could all three do it together — I don’t really care, I think you three would have some fun no matter how we slice & dice it.
My TV station FoxCT wanted to show a bit on the air so we sent a photographer while I brought Rachel Frank to ‘meet New Haven.’
Chaz and AJ ran the show for a while. When they were ready to scoot my name was announced and my honor… except they had forgotten to make an award for me. My ‘special’ recognition had slipped between the cracks! While the camera was rolling they shoved an award in my hand, “Best Funeral Home.”
You can’t make this stuff up!
