If so, I personally think they should have battled through it. Would have made it much more entertaining.
They did that one year ...it didn't end well IIRC one dead, several badly hurt
But yeah, it isn't nearly as fun as it used to be Maybe that's how everything gets as you get older? No self respecting New Yorker would actually go in person We leave that to the tourists and transplants to IG there "fun" If you consider standing in the cold wind and rain wearing Depends in a Penn you can't leave or re-enter "fun"
They talked about wind, then CBS stuff, then wind, then musicals, then wind, then balloons in the wind, then CBS stuff, then mentioned a parade with marching bands and floats, then wind, then Macy’s, then wind, then CBS... they had to show the guy holding a wind speed gage showing 5 mph every couple minutes. The Hollywood Christmas Parade is even worse.
You get what you pay for... So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.
