John Bolaris is not sports. He has nothing to do with sports, in fact. But we still write about him. Why? Because whether he’s hitting Lauren Hart’s high note (sweet HOOOOOME), getting roofied by Latvian chicks in Florida, playing with monkeys on Preston and Steve, drawing weather penises, Twitter fighting with Howard Eskin, or borderline sexually harassing anchors, John does things that we appreciate… or laugh at.
Anyway, he got fired parted ways with FOX today.
More, from Dan Gross of Philly.com:
The Fox 29 meteorologist had been suspended since Dec. 22 but this afternoon a Fox spokeswoman confirmed that, “We mutually agreed that it was time to part ways.” She declined further comment on the parting.
Last month, J-Bo was suspended by FOX Philly, mostly because of an interview he gave to Playboy in which he said that the reason he went with the Latvian women who roofied him in Florida was because “I’m a guy. There was the thought I might get laid"… oh, and the nude cell phone photos he shared with the magazine (no pic at that link).
So we make a sad. Not because Bolaris won’t be telling us the weather (we have the Internet for that), but because it seems like he has a ton of great stories that he’s just itching to share…
– lightbulb –
… And since there are few, if any, local media outlets that wouldn’t censor the Jesus fuck out of them, and because we’re the most read independent local website (unofficial, but I’d say it’s a safe bet), here’s the Bo Signal: We want John Bolaris to tell his stories, about anyone or anything, here on Crossing Broad.
His words, his tales, his photos… whatever. Whatever you want, John. crossingbroad [at] yahoo [dot] com– attn: J-Bo Knows
