Rose Parade, virtual-style

I have to give HGTV credit — they ran the parade with very limited commercial interruption. And, thank you too, Jenny Craig. I’m happy to give you a freebie shoutout for your New Year’s gift to us horse lovers.

On HGTV, we saw all but one of the equestrian units in the parade. All received a “lower third super” identifying the group.

Apparently, those who watched other networks weren’t so lucky, according to some commenters on the Horse Channel website article about the parade.

But, not to fear, The Horsey Set Net has your back. With the help of various sources, we’ll have our own virtual Rose Parade.

One of my favorite childhood holiday traditions was watching the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day. Even on our black and white TV.

This year, we have a big screen HDTV that should make me feel as if I’m in Pasadena without the crowds.  But I’m wondering if I’ll be frustrated and disappointed again. And not because I’ve grown out of it.
