Ok.  Let me address the comments I've seen on social media and heard from friends and colleagues regarding the resemblance between myself and some dude on The Bachelorette.

I don't watch The Bachelorette so it's not anything I would have known on my own.  But I did see my twitter (Briancody107) light up a bit in regards to it the other night and honestly didn’t think much of it. It wasn’t until I received a text a few nights ago from our friend Kristi Gustasfon Barlette from the Times Union that I knew this was sort of becoming a thing.  But is there a striking resemblance between myself and Chris R. from The Bachelorette? Perhaps.  In Kristi's text, she actually wondered if I had ‘a younger brother, or maybe a son from an early wife?’ Pretty funny stuff I must admit.  Laugh all you want guys, I’ve been called a lot worse: Ben Stiller 'on a really bad day', 'late in his career' Adam Sandler, heck I've even been told I look like various farm animals. Not a farm animal mind you-various!!   So while I don't necessarily see the striking resemblance, I don't hate it.  But I'll let you be the judge.
