Will the "Real" Gil Grissom Please Stand Up?
Note, in case you have trouble seeing the names, that's Fogarty on the left and McNeill is on the right, with William Petersen, AKA Gil Grissom, in the center. Let us know in the comments field below who looks most like Petersen: Fogarty or McNeill.

The great Gil Grissom run off is afoot! Our contestants both hail from around the Howard Beach area and on many occasions me and other have said that either man look like Gil Grissom of CSI. Has he ever been here alone? We CSI watchers know that Gil Grissom hooks up with Sara at the end of his run in the Dominican Republic – aaahh! But has he been secretly undercover in the guise of one man of the other? I would banter with both men by saying, “You know who you look like?” and their response would be, “I know, Gil Grissom of CSI” but to take it a step further I would then say, “No you look like" the other person’s name. Like our contestant number one, Randy McNeill, owner of Bluesky Landscaping and Deacon of St. Barnabas Church and our second contestant, Patrick Fogarty, whose families are much engrained in Old Howard Beach and Hamilton Beach. Now Gil and Sara went home after their reunion. Has it been to our quaint little Old Howard Beach? I know I have done many a double takes on both men.
Now, it’s up to you to decide which man most resembles Gil Grissom. You can vote right here by entering your choice in the comments field below.
The results will determine who most looks like and could be the missing Gil Grissom now that he has left the show. The winner will receive a nice free pizza complementary of our friends at Neighborhood Pizza in Colman Square. Join in the action by casting your vote!
And for all you civic-minded people, come on out to the Howard Beach Civic Association’s upcoming meeting on Tuesday, February 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the basement of St. Barnabas Church. Come down and speak up about Howard Beach’s concerns. And, don’t forget about the debate on February 12 at 7:30 pm, also at St. Barnabas. Hear your candidates speak about the upcoming special election to fill the City Council seat vacated by Joseph Addabbo, now a State Senator. If you can’t make that, get out and vote in the election for out good friend of Howard Beach, Frank Gulluscio.
See ya around the beach!
