They've been hosting this for a long time. Didn't they host the inaugural Rose Parade?
I would be great if they had a float with Michaela Pereira in a dunk tank
I don’t know if I can stand to watch the coverage.
The OWS crowd has a float - actually a bunch of plastic bags shaped like an octopus, with people walking under it.
I can’t be in the parade - not being a float, and not being covered in flowers. However, the police are going to keep the parade route closed to traffic, and allow these idiots to follow the parade.
Thanks to InBev the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales will not be in this year’s parade. :-(
From what I’ve read, OWS plans to shut the Rose Parade down/
Should be interesting.
Pasadena is a rich and old city that usually doesn’t put up with too much b.s. like l.a. would.
The Rose Bowl and parade are the jewels for the city. A million folks line the parade route.
Will be interesting to see if the media covers these fools geting stined by parade watchers.
LMAO... good one. I guess that dart board in Stephanie’s dressing room will have to do.
In all fairness, Michaela was probably doing what management wanted her to do. It was one of the biggest screw-ups related to the history of Rose Parade live broadcasting though.
On the local news station, the president of the Rose Bowl Parade association said he did not beleive OWS would shut the parade down, because he was confident that OWS would respect the history of the event.
The man is delusional.
I’ll be watching Flyers vs Rangers, playing outdoors.
I believe the little ows kids will be after the parade is all done... hope all the people still around boo and turn their backs on the ows kiddies
Bummer. I have to work.
Absolutely!! And they don't look a day older today; amazing!!:)
Hehe. And flood the parade route?!!
I remember all the loonies marching after the last float even back in the 70’s and 80’s when I used to go.
AND, that was the one year out of a hundred that it rained on the parade, rained hard. I’ll never forget poor Stephanie being relegated to actually sit on the curb in the rain and be a minor commentator. I’d sure like to know who the evil genius was who made that decision.
Will they have to hire extra pooper scoopers to follow the occupiers like they do the horse troops?
Whoever it was, I’ll bet they’re producing in a place like Wasilla these days. ;^)
It was raining wasn’t it. Yeah, and they’re darned lucky Stephanie agreed to come back.
I watched that segment on KTLA this morning and thought, I sure wouldn’t trust the commie occupy scum to keep their “word.” They will not be content with just following the end of the parade. The statements I’ve seen from Pasadena PD have not been reassuring, but I also have heard there are 500 security video cameras along the route.... among other security measures.
OWS will just follow the parade with all the other Walking Rabble that parade behind. No TV coverage, just a human tide. The local Tea Party is watching and waiting, but there are so darned many police and white suiters on the T of R that I suspect little will come of OWS.
Dang,, you SoCal folks got some nice temps coming if the forecast holds..
Sunny and and high of 80 for the 1st and 2nd.
