Still the Low Price Leader and More

When I was a youngster we would always get up at 7:00 A.M. on New Years Day to watch the Rose Parade.  If you’re a Southern California Native, you know that KTLA has the best Rose Parade coverage, and for as long as I can remember the parade has been hosted by Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards.  Eubanks is the tolerable albeit pervy ex-host of the Newlywed Game who forced me to ask my Nana at age 7 what to the phrase “making whoopie” meant.  He loves to talk about horses during the parade (in fact, I think that anytime he says “Appaloosa,” or “Clydesdale” I will be having a little drink on Thursday).  Edwards is the the plucky ex-spokeswoman for the now defunct Lucky supermarket chain.  She has always felt like a boozy great aunt, and she loves to talk about the flowers used in each float (perhaps a drink for every “chrysanthemum.”).

A few years ago she was tossed out on the street in the rain to provide on-street coverage.  The natives were pissed.  Then the following year she was gone.  Again, more pissed natives.

Well this years she’s back!  “Pin Cushion Protea!”
