Ok, so this is a little bit on the lite side for the first day back from the holidays, but am I the only person who keeps thinking about Dick Clark’s performance on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve?

And then I decided that it took a lot of cojones, and that perhaps people would remember him for that after he’s gone. Why give up your franchise to Ryan Seacrest without a fight at least?
