Still Mr. Turkey

What's the biggest event of the year in local TV newsrooms? Election night? Opening day at Saratoga? No, it's when Price Chopper's Neil Golub shows up with a truck full of food. For years, Golub has been demonstrating how to properly carve a turkey on newscasts during the week leading up to Thanksgiving. He's always invited back, not just because Price Chopper spends a lot of money on advertising, but because he brings enough food to feed everybody in the building. Let me tell you, the only thing TV people love more than a huge fire is a table full of free food.
