Best Thanksgiving ever

Post by Sir Auros » Thu Nov 27, 2008 9:45 pm

How freaking awesome is that? Non-US citizens, the Macy's Thanksgiving day Parade is a pretty big deal and part of the whole Thanksgiving tradition. Sadly, it's become a cavalcade of crappy teens lip-syncing their shitty music and dance numbers from the worst plays on Broadway, but that nod to internet pop culture almost makes up for it.

Heheh ... I missed that.

I watched part of the parade. The bands still manage to strut their stuff, if you'll pardon the expression. They really need to go back to using cheerleaders from universities though.

I laughed so hard watching that. Had to explain it to my Ma. Anywho, most college bands I saw marching today had cheerleaders prancing around. Yet again , the only college band I remember seeing was ole Georgia Tech's.

I prefer the football games and I hate football.

Wow,:eek: It’s good to know that he has a sense of humour about the whole phenomena of Rick-rolling.

He had an interview a few months after the trend started and he said it was quite bizzare.

I think it's funny he's more popular now then he was some 15 years after the song was made and released- a one-hit wonder no less.
