Parade Update: Santa Says No Snowballs

Chris Brennan reports: Santa says take it easy with the snow balls. Bruce Strubing, 55, of Wayne dressed up in a black Santa suit with white trim and beard with a sign that said; "No snowballs." "I'm a 1950s Santa when all you had was black and white TV. You can't tell I'm in a red suit." Strubing wasn't in town for the infamous Santa assault at Franklin Field but he was at the Vet in 1980 when Tug McGraw made the final pitch to win the World Series. "It has seemed like an eternity since then," he said.
