Hollywood Christmas Parade

As MetroRider reported and others reminded, the Hollywood Christmas Parade was back tonight for year 75!

Tonight's Grand Marshal was two: George Lopez and Regis Philbin as the Diamond Anniversary Grand Marshal.

Since 1978, only two men have served as grand Marshal twice: the iconic Bob Hope and... the Italian Tony Danza.

Yep, Tony Danza has been Grand Marshal twice. Who's proud to be in Hollywood now?

What's redeeming about the list of past Grand Marshals is that George Peppard was Grand Marshal in 1983, the year that A-Team came on the air and forever changed the world's perception of the "Los Angeles Underground" (no, not this underground).

I love it when a plan comes together.
