New York Daily News Latest Outlet to Get Suckered by Greg Packer

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:49 am

Who would have guessed our quote-providing hero would be at Times Square on New Year’s Eve? Here are three people who were surprised and bowled over: New York Daily News reporters Shane Dixon Kavanaugh, James Panelli, and Tina Moore:

Greg Packer, 47, a retired maintenance worker from Huntington, N.Y., ate an entire pizza. It was his eighth New Year’s Eve in Times Square.

“I love it,” he said. “I mean, everybody from all over the world comes just to watch a Waterford crystal ball. It’s great.”

Packer is actually no stranger to the pages of the Daily News. I guess they’re suckers for an easy and ersatz man on the street quote.

Happy New Year, Greg!
