What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Dear NBC and Macy's,

I'd really to see a parade, the one you show on your opening and closing cuts around the commercials, usually with your full screen graphics layed over top. Also, I understand, NBC, that you pay a lot for these rights, however, I'm tired of your commercials only vaguely disguised as content. As someone who has marched in more parades than I care to remember, including the Hall of Fame Parade in August while wearing our full wool uniform (and my director felt that having people with water,etc, marching along side was a sign of weakness, so we didn't have those), if people aren't marching the whole length and entertaining the crowds along the way, I really don't want to see them. That means all the broadway show-tune crap has to go.

So I'm going to watch CBS. They're showing the actual parade, which is twenty times more fun that what NBC has.
