It's always nice to when businesses in Central Maine show support to the police officers that help keep the communities safe. Well, that's exactly what happened at Augusta's Downtown Diner. The meal, named after officer Scott Taylor, is called the Silver Fox Special and it includes 2 eggs over medium, corned beef hash and white toast. The whole thing will cost ya $7.25.

According to a post from the Augusta Police Department's Facebook Page, "Thank you to our friends at the Downtown Diner for paying tribute to our very own Officer Scott Taylor. He has always been a celebrity in our eyes and now it appears we have to share his status with the rest of Augusta. Well done Scotty!"

This also got me thinking about how cool it would be to have a food item or meal named after me. I mean, way back in the day Big G's Deli did that for my dad. No, for real they did. There was a popular burger they had that they names the 'Jon James'. However, I don't think they have it anymore- maybe it wasn't that popular after all. Maybe I can get Laura Benedict over at the Barn to name something after me. Maybe we can start calling a chicken basket the 'Matt James'?

Of course I'm only kidding, I certainly don't deserve to have anything named after me, I just make stupid jokes on the radio. But what an honor for Officer Scott Taylor to have this wonderful tribute paid to him. Personally, I think that police officers rarely get the attention and respect that they deserve and this is a super-fun way of showing a little bit of that.

Thank you to our friends at the Downtown Diner for paying tribute to our very own Officer Scott Taylor. He has always...
