The Yankees Ticker Tape Parade

I should go to the ticker tape parade for the Yankees. I should also stay home and write. I can’t decide!!

I don’t follow sports really. I just like winning. And cute athletes. And parades. Especially ticker tape parades downtown, which of all the city has the most back-in-time feel which I love. What to do, what to do??

The last time I went to one of these things John Oliver from The Daily Show showed up a few feet away from me and taped a segment, which made it REALLY worthwhile. But I can’t count on that. Alas.

Oh and I tried taking this picture of the Empire State Building while standing across from Grace Church at 11th and Broadway. It didn’t come out well though. It was when it was supposed to be lit up in a tie-dyed fashion for the Grateful Dead? I still think that can’t be right. They’d honor the Grateful Dead? I think they are well worth honoring, but I’m still surprised.
