I want to preface this by saying that I am a huge fan of Casper's NBC affiliate, KCWY News 13 - in particular, their Chief Meteorologist, Joel Barnes - and no, not just because they're the only local station that we get on DISH network!

Over the last ten years, I have worked with him on numerous occasions, and I can say without hesitation that he is "The Man." He is the most experienced meteorologist in Casper and offers local weather forecasts that are second to none.

With that in mind, when when my wife and I cozied up to watch the latest episode of NBC's 'Parenthood' on the 'ol DVR, I couldn't resist hitting rewind a couple of times when we heard Joel's promo for an upcoming newscast. Check out the video. I dare you to watch it just once.

To my friend Joel - I'm sorry, but you have to admit, you'd have done this same if the roles were reversed.  :P

UPDATE: Since KCWY News 13 has chosen to remove the video from YouTube, you will have to settle for a transcript:

"Good evening, I'm Chief Meteorologist Joel Barnes. Tomorrow temperatures actually going to be showing you the radar for some reason because I'm a dufus I'm sure people of Valentinerduh..."
