Hopefully, there will be some clouds to yell at.

Doesn't matter.  Bird is in the oven, and "Alice's Restaurant" is playing*.  Sippin' my coffee.  All is right in the bopper homestead.

*The song, not the movie.  The movie sucks harder than the black hole at the center of our galaxy.

Fark, apparently we've been recording the Telemundo version of this the entire time.

Our first Thanksgiving together, my in-laws came to visit. I, being a Cold War warrior, was on alert with my bomber buddies. We were holed up in a dedicated building where we lived for a week at a time. They had a visitation facility next door, outside the wire. We would meet there for the feast.

0500 Thanksgiving Day

MIL: "Where's your Turkey?"

mrs edmo: "In the freezer."

MIL: "Oh boy."

They made it happen; feast at sunset.

Seems really early to do the Hamilton bit - figured they'd wait until at least halfway through

Weirdly big crowds around the Fireman float. Also, definitely being carried by humans and not drones.

This guy on the Verizon feed is getting more and more annoying as this thing goes on...I never thought you coudl find someone more obnoxious than Willard Scott to cover this thing.

Ah, that one was a replay from last year.

Is the augmented reality content exclusive to the Verizon feed? The bad CGI mermaid was hologram will-I-am level terrible.

Also this Verizon host makes me miss Kathy Griffin.

Um, do those of you watching the Verizon feed and hate it so much have no other options?

Indeed.  

Hulu is advertising it but no options to play it....do you have to have Hulu Live to get that?

Would make sense, I guess. May or may not be on regular Hulu later or maybe even tomorrow.

I take it you're also out of antenna range?

/CBS seems to be using an awful lot of archival footage, not even clear if any of it is live.

IDK. No antenna, no cable. This is what the wife found streaming on youtube via roku. Keep seeing the same 5 floats over and over.

Yeah, I'm a chord-cutter.

The best feed I've found so far is the Earh Cam feed on Youtube.  That gives the authentic NYC experience with rain, parked vehicles and the occasional garbage truck beep.

This Verizon coverage is horrible and they're getting destroyed on their Twitter feed for it.

My wife and I are instead watching the 1981 Macy's Parade on Youtube. Donnie Osmond singing on the back of a giant turkey!

As good as that Rockettes performance was, I'm pretty sure it just gave an entire nation's worth of leg men blue balls.

Worst ever.  Poor lip syncing.  Commercials for plays and movies.
