Ready for the New Year
It’s been a while since we’ve last talked, or actually I last talked.
Between the WOBM Christmas Classic, a brief vacation and then getting sick it’s been almost three weeks since my voice has come into your home, car, office, wherever you happen to listen. Belated wishes for a Happy New Year and if you haven’t done so please take down your Christmas decorations. it’s time to move on.
In the period we were apart I managed to see three movies: ”Wild” with Reece Witherspoon was outstanding, “Unbroken” was good but not great and “The Gambler” was predictable and a bit disappointing.
We spent New Year’s Eve attending the wedding of Maria Sarluca and Chuck Lupo; it was a great time with great friends and a unique setting to watch the ball drop at midnight. The bride’s parents Ed & Laura put on a great party and the happy couple is just back from their honeymoon in Antigua.
Speaking of honeymoons, my wife Jane & I saw “Honeymoon in Vegas” over the weekend on Broadway and really enjoyed it. Very light and funny with plenty of laughs. Tony Danza is the biggest name in the show but not really the star. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the weekend was made complete when we got to meet our kids for dinner afterwards.
A disappointing ending for Dallas Cowboys fans, including Governor Christie with that controversial loss to the Packers in Green Bay Sunday. You can argue the rule all you want which cost Dez Bryant a great catch but you can’t argue the call which was correct. Bottom line was the Cowboys had their chances and did not capitalize, just like the week before when a questionable referee’s call did the same to Detroit.
I think we were all disappointed that Fox did not give us a shot of Christie and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones as the game ended but the suites at Lambeau Field are enclosed and I guess they could not get a clear shot. As I would tweet afterwards, “with his football season over Chris Christie has decided to return to New Jersey and play governor.”
Caught the Golden Globes last night which is without question the best of the award shows because everyone is more relaxed then during the stuffy Academy Awards, probably due to the fact they’ve been drinking most of the night. Best speeches came from Kevin Spacey, Michael Keaton and George Clooney.
