Well it's about time somebody wished him a happy birthday. He is 72 years old today. We all know that he was the NBC weatherman on the Today Show and the first Ronald McDonald back in 1963. He is also the writer of many fiction and non-fiction books. In my research on the internet I found out that Mr. Scott only wore his toupee on certain days because of a clause in his contract with NBC. This explains why some days he has it on and other days he doesn't. The above photo I got from this site.
