This morning on FOX affiliate WNYW, ”Good Day New York” sports director Duke Castiglione accepted a challenge from the general manager of the New York Yankees, Brian Cashman, to rappel down the side of a building in Stamford, Conn.
The event was a dry run for Cashman, who is taking part in the annual “Heights and Lights” Christmas tree lighting show, which is this weekend. This is the fifth year in row that Cashman has rapelled off the 22-story Landmark Building. It was the first time for Castiglione, and Cashman was impressed: ”You’re like a seasoned pro,” he said.
Oh, and Santa Claus was there too.
