Uncle George to the rescue!

My Uncle George, a Tampa police officer, deserves a great big ATTABOY! for coming to the aid of a stranded driver yesterday morning. But not just any stranded driver--this man was on his way to the hospital in rain and rush-hour traffic to undergo a kidney transplant when his truck got a flat tire! You can read about it in today's Tampa Bay Times.

Mike is understandably proud of his not-so-little-anymore brother, who was born on M's 39th birthday. He says it's hard to believe George is the same young man who only a few years ago forgot to bring his tuxedo to his own wedding, so everybody had to wait while he went back home for it. But that's another story.

There's another super cool aspect to George's police job: he sometimes gets to help make public relations videos for the Department. Here's one from October of 2012. George first appears at the 17-second mark, as Cop #2. When a third one joins the scene a second later, George ends up on the right. He's also in several other scenes. Can you spot them?

Whee, doggies! Book 'em, Georgie--but be careful out there!

Kudos to George!
