New Year’s Eve TV

Happy Amateur Night!  If you’re like me you’re not that into sharing the road or even a space.  I remember one year when someone poisoned themselves on 1.75 of Stoli, announced they had to pee, stood up, turned around, and proceeded to do so on the couch they had previously been sitting on.

Being a charitable fellow I literally held the bag for him as he detoxified before he slept it off.  I will admit I let him do it on the same couch (well, we had to burn it anyway).

In any event to kick off the festivities I direct your attention to the Holiday Bowl Big Balloon Parade.  Yup, bigger than Macy’s and more concentrated, only an hour at 9 am on USA.  The results of last night’s Holiday Bowl itself?  Washington 19 – 7 over Nebraska.

Expect updates.  This edition good until noon.  Now through 8 pm.  Up to 11 pm.  Now until 2 am.  6 am.

New Tools.  Previous entries.  Instant gratification-
