The one where David Payne thinks we’re a leprechaun…

So far, it doesn't appear the new gig (and larger paycheck) has changed the guy. He's still the same casual, laid back, chatty weatherman we've all grown to moderately enjoy.

Anyway, I guess that's pretty cool. We've been called plenty of things worse than a leprechaun. Hell, I consider it a compliment. I'm Irish, enjoy gold, and am a borderline alcoholic. I'm also the former roommate who picks out all the marshmallows in the box Lucky Charms. At least I think those things are marshmallows. I'm not sure.
