Dropping the Ball

Dropping the Ball
Barb Szyszkiewicz

Do you watch the ball drop on New Year's Eve?

It looks like once again, Dick "The Eternal Teenager" Clark will be cohosting the Rockin' Eve celebration on ABC.  And that's depressing.  The guy doesn't seem to know when to call it quits.

After my great-aunt suffered a stroke a few years ago, I learned firsthand of the miracles that stroke rehab can perform.  But when a TV personality is unable to speak intelligibly, he needs to accept that his days of hosting the Rockin' Eve are over.  Failing that, a little more speech therapy might be in order.

That doesn't seem to stop anyone from watching; the party we'll attend will feature The Eternal Teenager on the big screen--larger than life, almost.  If it's anything like the past couple of years, Dick Clark's performance will be cringe-worthy at best.  I'd much rather see a Dick Clark retrospective of past (healthy) New Year's Eve specials, complete with the music, hair and fashions of those years.

With any luck, we'll find a college football game to watch instead.  The Chick-Fil-A Bowl starts at 7:30 Eastern.  Double overtime, anyone?
