who most likely waved his booze bottle and screamed out his lungs.
For those who viewed the activity from quiet homes or populated
parties, watching the crowd in New York City on the tube was
exhilarating but viewing the people in Las Vegas was confusing. It was
difficult to understand how the folks on the other side of the Mississippi
could get so excited about ten o'clock.
