Winds of only 5-10 MPH and no rain, should make for an injury free contest this year.

The new Shrek balloon was a total bust, being all horizontal and stuff.

The Energizer Bunny was a new addition this year that barely got any screen time on CBS at all as they went to commercial. Next year they plan to rename it Kris Wilson.

Menudo did merit almost 5 minutes of discussion, though.

Brought to you by the Potato Board.

Now to an field level interview with Mia and Gloria, grandmother and granddaughter who come to the parade every year. They are the core of the franchise.

Doogie Howser hanging out with Hannah Storm, Jr. and a pack of small children.

Dora the Explorer is really bringing her game this year. She's leading with her wedge-shaped head and appears to be in full, saucy stride. It's taking 80 handlers with 51 lines to keep Dora in line this year!

Is this official?

Somebody from Texas shouldn't be starting this thread, just sayin'

Pikachu (with electricity) is hot on Dora's tail. Dora better hope Diego has her back!

Pikachu missed a perfect chance to eat his head.

Nobody else appeared willing to step up and start the thread. Bob Dole waited until almost the end of the 1st quarter.

Bob Dole had to step out and freeze his ass off for a smoke during the last segment. It sure would have been nice to return and have a summary to read.

Are Bob Dole and his mother the only people watching this exciting contest?

"One of the hottest groups today", Rascal Flatts, performing "their MONSTAR HIT" indoors somewhere and inexplicably inserted into the CBS presentation of the 81st Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The New York Tin Toy float brought to you by The History Channel takes us in to commercial. Some sort of Feinstein guy on the float "entertaining" the crowd somehow. Bob Dole couldn't hear the commentary because Bob Dole's father just arrived in the room and started talking about "stupid shit" and asking "why the **** is this on?"

Bob Dole may not be able to hold the channel long enough to complete the game.

Ooltewah, TN marching band is all dressed as clowns and playing some sort of clown tribute music.

Because as some of you may not know, Thanksgiving was originally established to honor the art of clowning. (And giant red shoes.)

Kermit the Frog just appeared to enter Neil Patrick Harris' head as he was asked 2 different questions simultaneously by Hannah Storm and her cohost stiff.

This thing could get out of control in a hurry if the officials don't step in soon and restore some order!

Bob Dole had to step out just as Music Bigger than Life featuring Wynonna Judd (with hair of a color not found in nature) was coming on. What did Bob Dole miss?

(And shouldn't it be "Music Larger than Life"?)

Apparently Bob Dole missed The Big Finish, and Santa already crashed the party. Bob Dole's father thankfully wrested control of the remote from Mom and we're now watching the Fox pregame show.

All in all it was a well played contest this year, and it looks like all the players emerged from the battle without any significant injuries. Good move by the NYC public works to remove some light poles from one of the typically treacherous turns. Mother Nature probably deserves some kudos, as well, for providing a sunny day with moderate temperatures and only light and variable winds.

Bob Dole is going to have to admit that the new Shrek balloon appears to be a bust--or at least failed to live up to the pre-parade hype. Maybe he'll bring more game during his sophomore season next year. He definitely needs some additional conditioning so he can navigate the route in a vertical position.

From Bob Dole's seat, the electric Pikachu pretty much stole the show with his Poke-Ball and flashing red cheeks. Goddamned Japanese are taking over right under our noses, people! Remember the clowns and do something this off-season to take this parade back!

Nut mobile sighting...that just is wrong.
