Thanksgiving Day Parade 2010

This year,  I worked the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I got up at 3am, drove to the Manhattan, and at about 5 30 or so found myself  waiting outside this Winnebego umm..I mean Command Post.  I was assigned to the end of the parade escorting the stars back to their respective black limos.

Great for camping or a base camp for a parade.


My post was at the end of the parade, just beyond Macy’s. The stars would lyp sync their song in front of the blue smurf and head towards my direction. I was tasked with making sure no one tried run down the street or try to steal any of the celebrities.

Here was my post

Sesame Street float.


Some clown that likes hamburgers. Alot.

I forgot to mention that behind me was all the limo driver’s waiting to pick up the celebrities. It is not everyday you see this:

How come Boots can't go in the limo? Is The Map allowed in? He would probably be useful.


She waved at me!! It was love at first sight.


She could not resist the chubby irishman!


Miss America.


Me and Kylie Minogue


WHo the hell is Kylie Miongue you ask? Click here.

Jessica Simpson

Jessica begged me for a picture...what can I do?

Me as a float.


A closer look


Kung Fu Panda.


A balloon that needs no introduction


Spidey crawled right over me.


Buzz Lightyear


Mini Rockettes


Melissa Rivers


Joan Rivers

The Big Man himself.


All in all it was a good day I guess. I know I am lucky to have been so close…good times.

    Bro! I know your a cop and have the ‘protect and serve’ oath. But if you could have punched Joan Rivers in the mouth for me I would have sent you a check. Seriously. It’s a toss up which I’d rather do least of, listen to her talk or Celine Dion sing.

    And is that Jessica Simpson?

    WOW!! That’s awesome, who else did you see? You didn’t think to put up the Jessica Simpson picture, instead you went with Kylie Minogue lol. Glad you got Jessica Simpson to her limo safe, I dunno what the world would have done with out her. lol


  3. I would have gone with Kylie over Jessica, too, because — as far as I know — she is still untainted by John Mayer.


  4. Kylie Minogue…you lucky SOB!! Glad you got to have a good time at your post, though.

    BTW, the chat is a WP plug in. Don’t know if it makes a difference, but H&B is a .org, not .com WP blog.

      I did have a good time on the post. It was one of those days where it was kinda cool to be a cop ya know? I think that H&B is .org gives you more freedom to have plug ins and stuff. I don’t think I can have that chat plug in. Oh well, if WP ever puts it out for us computer challenged people, I am jumping on it.

    Wow. Kylie Minogue. Not bad O’Shea… not bad.

    Although Victoria Justice is looking pretty damn hot lately. Is she 18 yet? Is it okay for me to admit that I noticed?
