    Bolaris described the attacker as a twentysomething white man, about 5 feet 8, 165 pounds, with a blondish buzz-cut.

    Crazies are everywhere.

    A.C. was once a cool getaway.... we had great fun down there at the bars.
    Ceil's Saratoga for the "shows"...
    The M&M, Mama Mott's, The Chester Inn, the Randevous, and a horde of other joints blaring disco music... oh those days, the fond memories.

    Then the god damned casino's moved in..
    And the tint of the city changed...hip hop clubs sprang up.
    Now it's crap, why bother.

    I was under the impression (I wouldn't know from personal experience) that AC was amazing back in the days of yore (was even practically a suburb of Philly), but once cars became really mainstream people went elsewhere. AC went in decline and the Casinos were a reaction to the decline itself as a gasping attempt to save the city from financial ruin (and no, I'm not trying to draw parallels, but feel free to).

    Anyways, off topic.

    So John Bolaris. That's crazy. And you would be surprised how much bleeding can arise out of a cut finger like the one he suffered.

    Oh man, that's funny stuff. I've been spending weekends in Avalon for about five years now and frequently run into Bolaris. He pops up bars, house parties, bay parties, you name it. I honestly can't believe it took this long for him to catch a beating. He's pretty obnoxious and usually aggressively hits on girls half his age. In fact, it's a running joke among many people down there that the day after a party there will be at least one girl who says something like, "freakin' Bolaris wouldn't leave me alone last night."

    Anyway, with that said, no one deserves to be accosted in the street. Glad he's OK.

    That's interesting as I seem to recall a similar post a while back on PB characterizing Bolaris similarly vis a vis bars in Manayunk (I think it was Manayunk, else Old City.)

    BTW, to the other posters, what's with all the discussion of AC in a thread specific to Avalon?

    Karmas a bitch Johnny, maybe it was a friend of Lauren Harts that finally gave his little pompous ass the beatdown it deserved.

    Lauren Hart? I thought she married that La Colombe tool.
    Or are you talking about his first heyday in Philly?

    Yeah back in his channel 10 days, after a long relationship he dropped her like a hot potato right around the time her cancer became public. I'd visit Avalon more often if I knew I'd be able to get a poke at this midget POS.

    If it helps, he was always a regular at Jack's back in my shore house days.

    Its not the first time. John Bolaris is no stranger to trouble. There was an article on philly.com not too long ago, detailing his past scuffles and talking about how he's mellowed out now that he has a daughter (I guess that's not entirely true). Unfortunately, I can't find the article now, but a friend of mine told me that he ran into Bolaris at shore bar about 8 years ago. He was being his usual, obnoxious self when some drunk dude walked up to him and proceeded to urinate on his leg. Bolaris turned around and the drunk guys says, "Hey John, it looks like rain!"

    Pure gold.

    If you believe people should work till they die to pay for a government worker to retire at 50, you're a Democrat. Otherwise, you're a Republican. All other differences between the parties are trivial.

    I bet not a single hair of Bolaris' wind-tunnel tested hair-do was moved out of place during the scuffle. As Tony Manero (Aka John Travolta) from Saturday night Fever would say

    Yes-he's a well know annoyance to young women. He frequently begins his conversations with "Do you know who I am?" as if being a local weatherman is equal to a professional athlete.

    I'm guessing he's not telling the full story.

    Didn't deserve to be beat up however.

    Perhaps. But I hang (well used to hang) in Margate and the locals are a bunch of drunken idiots. I have it on authority.

    If you see him ask him when the last time he touched a skew-t chart to determine cloud formation was.

    He doesn't do any of the actual predicting anymore, the interns from Penn State do.

    I learned enough from one hellish class at PSU to know two things 1) real meteorologists are underrated (it's a hard science) because of the TV buffoons that give them bad names, and 2) every TV meteorologist that I've met, including my former professor there has shown me that they have a tendency to be pompous asses.

    Also supposedly a family member banged him in the late 90s. Because of that I always win six degrees to Kevin Bacon (he was on Preston and Steve the same day Kevin Bacon was).

    Isn't that the same guy that predicted the storm of the century 10 years ago and than it didn't even rain, and than was run out of town when Pat Burell lumped him up downtown for hitting on Pat's girl in front of Pat in a Walnut Street restaurant. FOX 29 please bring back Dorothy Krysiuk and ****can this menace to society.
