Fargo Weatherman

Yesterday evening someone reached my blog while Googling the words "fargo weatherman too tall." This thrilled my Human because she knew just who this person was looking for:


My Human first saw "Too Tall" Tom Szymanski when she spent a night in Mankato, MN. Back then (in the early '90's) there weren't 3 million television channels, so she had to watch the local news. Mr. Szymanski gave his weather report in a truly unique fashion. The guy is 6 foot, 10 inches tall and he'd move in close to the camera for emphasis. My Human was there at the end of June and Mr. Szymanski had a really short guy help him change the calendar page.

A few years later, my Human was spending the night in Fargo, North Dakota and was thrilled to see Mr. Szymanski was doing the weather in that town.

So I guess whoever was looking for information on Mr. Szymanski was probably a bit surprised to find my blog entry. I'll close with a picture of my friend Fargo for comparison sake.

Yeah, it was weird, but in a relly funny way. He's such a unique looking fellow that the whole weather experience is surreal!

Your friend Fargo is definetely much better looking!

The weather man looks like he's made of plastic. Wierd!

Yes, Fargo is better looking. But sadly he doesn't have a tv show. It's an injustice, really. The lack of huskies on tv.
