I love a parade ... ho-hum

    Not being a big Giants fan but being enough of a football fan (and because I had nothing else to do), I followed (occasionally) the parade through Manhattan that was all over TV in our area today. Not too exciting but a nice event for the team members and fans.

    But when they got to City Hall, I drew the line. Okay, I'll accept Michael Blomberg talking because he is the Mayor of the city, but when they started wheeling out Charles Schumer, Elliot Spitzer and the rest of the politicians, I shut it off.

    And please, did they have to run it when "The Young And The Restless" was due?

    Politics and sports have always had a somewhat tenuous thread. I was told that back in 1966, when England won the soccer world cup on home turf, the Labour government made sure they wore red jerseys in the final against Germany.

    England wins wearing Labour's colors, the nation is swept up in good feeling, and the government got re-elected soon after.

    I can'twait 'til the Leafs win the Stanley Cup and the parade starts in St. John's, Newfoundland and ends two weeks later in Victoria, British Columbia.

    All of it televised live on CBC, right?

    I really thought this was going to be a Mardi Gras thread.

    I knew Yonge Street stretched out for a long distance, but whoa. :)
