First off, Happy New Year everyone. This year my wife and I celebrated with another pregnant couple by watching TV and playing Scene IT: TV Edition. Unlike the past two years, I promised my wife I would stay awake to watch the ball drop as I accidentally fell asleep waiting for midnight. After a victorious game for myself, we got ready to watch the ball drop. KMBC-TV, the local ABC station, was playing Dick Clark's Rockin New Years Eve, along with some commercials. But the station manager that night didn't get the idea that people might want to SEE the ball drop, and played commercials during the year switch. After coming back from commercial, the event was over, the ball had dropped, and most of Kansas City was unable to see it. So hopefully with the power of Google, this post will not allow the station to live this down throughout 2005 and in one year, get it right and show the people of Kansas City the ball drop.
