In my house last night, the television remote, DVR and laptop got a workout beyond the usual. I’d like to say that as good citizens we watched the Democratic National Convention coverage nonstop, but let’s face it: we live in northern New Jersey and the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants were
playing losing their first game of the NFL season against the Dallas Cowboys, on national TV. And hey, we live in Baristaville and Montclair’s Nauna’s Bella Casa was being skewered on the Food Network’s Restaurant Stakeout. So let’s just say emotions ranged from “Oh, yeah!” to Oh, no!” to “Are you kidding?” — in no particular order, or perhaps I should say, in rotating order. We clicked, we clapped, we clutched our throats.
What about you? Did you feel “called” as Massachusetts Senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren suggested? Or did you want to hang up? For you, was former President’s Bill Clinton’s speech the clearest articulation of the Dem’s platform yet? Did you have flashbacks of other disastrous Giant-sized fallbacks with dropped footballs, missed opportunities and a Queen-sized national anthem debacle? Or are the boys in blue just getting started? Will reaction to Nauna’s 60 minutes of fame (if you missed it, the show airs again soon) show up in their dining room with empty seats or curious newcomers and loyal, confused patrons? What’s the buzz on all three this morning, Baristaville? Discuss.
