Sam?s pumped for calendar
MEET Rockhampton's own Mr November ? fireman Sam McInnerney.
Sam is featured in the annual Firefighters Calendar for 2006, which includes semi-clad firefighters from around the state.
It's the first time Sam has posed for a calendar and he says it's all for a good cause.
"All proceeds will go to the children's burns unit at the Royal Brisbane Hospital.
"It's a fundraiser that's close to us because it can happen to anyone.''
Sam said Queensland firies had raised about $100,000 with the calendar last year.
He said while he hadn't copped too much from his fellow workers, he expected that after today he would.
Sam said the worst part about posing for the calendar was having to go hair free and get a spray tan. He said his wife of two weeks, however, was wrapped with calendar.
"She loves it. She thinks its great she's got a pin-up boy at home. It's very strange for me though. It's all a new experience.''
Sam will be selling copies of the calendar on Saturdays at Stockland Rockhampton (starting next week) until mid-November. The calendars will also be available from Rockhampton fire stations.
