I don't know about anyone else, but 2008 was NOT the year for me. That being said, I will say that there were a few things that were awesome about 08 for me (in no particular order) that I can look forward to in 09 as well.
The Co was Created
What most people don't know, is that if it weren't for a group of people sitting through a tremendously long taping of the new American Gladiators, the Co would most likely not exist. It was during the hours of sitting in chairs, eating passed out snacks, and laughing at the ridiculousness of the whole thing that some of us met and planted the seed for a blog, though nothing of this size was planned at the time.
Obama was Elected President
If you haven't figured it out yet, we kinda like Obama around here so to say 08 was a good year, politically, might be an understatement.
Kanye Killed it With The Glow in the Dark Tour
Love him or hate him, Kanye finally reached stadium status this last year and he took concerts to a whole new level. Kanye continues to impress and surprise everyone constantly, it will be interesting to see what comes in 09 on top of his already announced rap album.
San Francisco Beer Fest Celebrated 25 Years
2008 was my second year going and it was even better than the 1st year. As if SF isn't awesome enough on it's own, it hosts this amazing event. Amazing beer, great vibe (no fights, everyone seems to be happy drunks there) and good times to be had by all, I have been counting down the days till Beer Fest 09 since the minute I stepped out of Beer Fest last year
SNL if Funny Again
Sarah Palin Skits, Justin Timberlake Skits, The Blizzard Man, Andy Samberg, need I go on? For all the fans from SNL's golden years saying it'll never be as funny as back then, get over it, the golden years were hilarious but humor has changed and moved on and so should you. SNL had some crappy years but it's officially funny again. The viral skits floating around the internet have me rolling on the floor every time, they are utilizing guests well, and the show is more and more consistently funny.
