In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, my awesome friend Jon shares his shot at love gone awry:
So, I’m driving to work this morning listening to Joe Rose on WQAM and he starts talking about how he works with two women at Channel 6 that he can’t believe are single. He was having a conversation with them last night at work about how they can’t meet any quality guys. So with Valentine’s Day around the corner, Joe took it upon himself to attempt to fix up these two women on the air this morning.
One of the women is Jennifer Gray, the weather person for Channel 6, who’s very attractive. So when I got to work, I wrote the following email:
Subject: Disaster written all over it
While I enjoy your show and listen to you almost everyday, I’m slowly learning to not be surprised by the trouble that you seem to get yourself into. That being said, I’m sure that you’ve dug yourself a pretty deep hole with the two lovely women that you work with by attempting to set them up, blindly, on the radio. Sure, you’re intentions are noble, but it has disaster written all over it.
That fact, however, is not stopping me from ‘throwing my hat into the ring’ for a shot at dating Jennifer Gray. Though I don’t know anything about her personally, I’m willing to take your word for it that she’s as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
Anyway, more about me can be found here:
And if I look familiar to you, it means you have a very good memory. I used to work for WSVN in the sports department as a producer, back when Ducis was the number one. We’ve met numerous times out on locations, but that was many moons ago.
About an hour later, I get this back:

I love my friends.
