They Didn't Ask Me

New Year's Day

125th Tournament of Roses Parade -- check.

Breakfast with stollen and Apple-Chicken sausage -- check.

Dave Barry's 2013 Year in Review -- check. (snort!) (chortle) (giggle)

Big Ten teams playing on New Year's Day at 1pm -- Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa -- check, check, check.

Michigan State University in the Rose Bowl later -- CHECK!

So we're watching... The NHL Winter Classic on NBC -- Toronto Maple Leafs versus Detroit Redwings -- at the Big House on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

It's outdoors. It's packed. It's like the largest crowd to see a hockey game, as Michigan Stadium seats over 100,000. It's 12°F, wind chill is 0°F, chance of snow 100%. Perfect. Watching the crews pushing off the dry fluffy snow, hilarious.

And now I have a book to read.

Enjoy your New Year's.

Dr. Phil
