New Year's Eve (Replay)

Don't call me at 12:01 to wish upon me and mine a Happy New Year, because me and mine will be sleeping.  I know that this is really lame, but my wife is pregnant (tired all the time) and I have a 9 month old (crazy all the time) and this leads to sleep being a precious commodity around the ole' homestead.

That being said, Kathy and I really did want to stay up and watch the festivities on television.  We pondered setting an alarm for 11:45 am and getting up only to go back to bed at 12:05.  We weren't too pumped about this idea, but then it hit me as I was finishing the last of my fourth package of honey roasted bbq sauce on nuggets & fries from chick-a-fil.  We would record the times square ball drop on our DVR, complete with:
  • Dick Clark, who is nearly 80, but has the Kenny Rogers, multiple face-lift look going
  • Tons of US servicemen and other freezing cold people crammed into a few city blocks to count backwards from 10
  • Special musical guests that are always lame

If this means that I'm old, then go ahead and ship me my tervis tumbler and make me a reservation to Sam Seltzer's Steakhouse, preferably before 5PM, because nothing makes me happier than getting a good night's sleep before not having to go to work and watching football all day.

If the SEC goes 9-0 this bowl season (they are currently 3-0 and Auburn is winning), they should abandon the BCS and make it where every season, the consensus #1 team in the country plays the SEC champ regardless of records.  I would take the SEC champ every year the past 10 years except for maybe one of those Miami teams.

If you have boys, don't let this happen to them.  Keep your flip phones safely locked away....
