SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — It seems as though Syracuse is the place to be this weekend! The city, dressed in orange, is buzzing with excitement!

A lot of familiar faces are around town and we ran into one on Marshall Street Friday afternoon: Former NewsChannel 9 reporter Sean Martinelli, a Syracuse University graduate and huge Orange fan!

“I remember two years ago we beat Clemson. I want to see it happen again,” Martinelli said.

“Are you feeling confident?” we asked.

“I was so confident that I was on the plane last night and I told the attendant we needed to make an announcement saying the Tigers were going to go home disappointed and they didn’t do it. I was so sad,” Martinelli said.

Martinelli now works as a reporter with NBC 2 in sunny Fort Myers, Florida.
