I gotta believe man....this is the year Ohio State removes their head from their arse and wins a big game. Go Bucks!

I actually followed the whole thing on your Twitter feed. First time I ever used Twitter. Was kind of fun. Thanks for taking the time to keep me entertained.

Hi..I wish that you had more photos for those of us that did not see Parade for the first time in my life. I missed all the horses....do you have any photos of them?

Thank you...and Have a Healthy Happy New Year !

Caught him in mid-wave, I'm afraid, but he was on my side and going by so quickly that it was the only shot I got of him. I have a shot of Michelle Kwan, but she's in such half-shadow that I didn't run it.

I'm proud of the Sully shot, though.

I was on the press photo stand a couple hundred yards east (down the route) from the main grandstands at Colorado and Orange Grove (where the TV cameras are).

Robert, what was the temp during the parade, it looks like people are wearing heavy coats?

Sorry about your Wildcats, Robert. That was about as crazy a game as I've seen in a while! (Mizzou fan here--sorry about last year too...I was cheering for Northwestern against the "other" Tigers!)

I suppose we should have expected an ending like that, given that our quarterback's last name is ... Kafka. (I'm not kidding.)

As for the temp, the folks across the street there had camped all night for those seats, and it had gotten down to the low 40s. The parade starts one hour after sunrise, and the temp was up to the low 60s by then. It was in the mid-70s by parade's end.

I loved the snowboarding bulldogs float for natural balance. Dick Van Patten is a genius to come up with these ideas! How fun. Also liked the rainbird one with Jack Hanna
