Dick Clark Sounded Awful
Poor Dick Clark. While I know he's a New Year's icon, he really needs to retire. He's 80 years old, not in the greatest of health, and you couldn't understand a word he said. I have all the respect for Dick Clark and all he's accomplished in his life, but he needs to take a break. While Ryan Seacrest -- his future replacement -- is a no-talent hack, it just made me sad to see (and hear) Dick countdown. He even miscounted the countdown.
According to his Wikipedia article, apparently he sounded better this year than he did last couple years (I don't think I made it to midnight in years past). If he sounds this bad this year, I can only imagine what he sounded like in years past.
Just the same, Happy New Year everybody. I'll be going to bed once the morons in my neighborhood quit shooting off fireworks.
