Meet The New Year, Same As The Old Year
But before you get too excited thinking about how revolutionary we are, check out what some other cities do to ring in the New Year:
"You've likely seen that ball in Times Square, at least on TV. But you might not believe all the weird stuff rising and dropping to ring in 2007 all over the country, from Flagstaff, Arizona's pinecone to Port Clinton, Ohio's 20-foot, 600-pound 'Wylie the Walleye.'"
-Pittsburgh Post Gazette
Now, I know what you're thinking. With "Clinton" in the town's name, the easy joke would be to ask why they don't drop a pair of pants when the clock strikes twelve. But screw you. I'm not about the easy joke.
And how can you top lowering a 600 lb fish to ring in the new year? Once again, just when we get excited about being "different", the Post Gazette is the sobering yin to our raging yang.
*Ok, I admit this post is filler, but I figured you needed something to clear the Jeff Reed story out of your brain.
