    Great hire. Good to see him back in the 518. Can't help but wonder if he was On our supposed search committee and/or an applicant for the job.

    There's a property owner downtown across from Stewart's who has a dozen or more on display ...can't help but wonder see if they get utilized during early morning drunk stumbles

    They also seem to like to decorate toilets up there, at least the last time I drove through. Good thing they didn't choose that for a theme...

    Thanks for the pic, Joe. Sharp paint job! Very Holstein and/or Guernsey. I thought I saw a picture years ago suggesting that Clarkson's Cowboni had a cowtail. Generally, dairy cows don't strike fear into the hearts of hockey players.

    My first guess would have been that Byrne Dairy would have been the sponsor.

    When I saw the link to the pics, I thought the meanest looking Zamboni was the crocodile-themed model. But the Potsdam climate is friendlier to cows than crocs...

    Our Cowboni is better engineered than your ice resurfacer.

    But not like a certain cowboni thought to be native to the Potsdam area...

    (Wish I could find a picture in it's natural habitat but a quick search of the 'net yields nothing.
    I put out the challenge to find a picture of the Clarkson cowboni.)

    When he was injured last year it was determined that the same deficiency existed in the other knee as well. So he had one surgery in the Fall of 16 and after he was healed he had a second operation on the other knee. I don't want to get into specifics but he is fully heeled from both operations.
