Ah, it’s that time of year again where political correctness drives people mad! Last year, we attacked the myths behind Frostie the Snowman and Santa Claus, and because they went over so well, I decided to continue it again this year, with a different holiday that no one ever goes after. Well, why should we leave New Year’s celebrations alone? Surely, somewhere, someone is offended by such a day/eve, and on this blog, we shall set out to exploit it!
To all my readers who have been following me throughout the year, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to wish each and every one of you and your families and friends a very happy and healthy 2011! I sure hope that everyone made realistic resolutions that they will stick to (I know I sure am going to try this year!).
Please enjoy this New Year’s favorite, “Auld Lang Syne”, performed by Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra. It’s the perfect way to ring in the New Year, next to a Honeymooners marathon of course!
Tomorrow will bring some tough choices on television. After my morning workout (giving a hint on one of my resolutions), I will be switching back and forth between The Honeymooners on WPIX, a personal and family tradition, and one of The Twilight Zone on Scy-Fy. It truly is amazing listening to my dad quote almost every line in every episode of Jackie Gleason’s legendary show, and what is more amazing, is the fact that even 55 years later, they are still funny as ever!
Then when tomorrow night rolls around, the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning will be battling it out at 7pm, followed by the NHL Winter Classic between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals at 8pm. Had they stuck to their regular time, I would have tuned in, but the Rangers will get priority tomorrow night.
Also don’t forget to check out Sky Harbor tomorrow evening at the Stone Pony!
Once again, have a terrific 2011!
