Okay, it's time for me to come clean.
By now you've all heard of the huge riots on the Plaza last week caused by a bunch of teenage rebelz without a clue. You know about the fist fights, the girl-on-girl cat fights, the pushings into fountainses, and the rather ugly spontaneous group line dances in the streets.
Lots of people have covered this. The news, bloggers, more bloggers, still more bloggers.
Oh yes. It's been quite the to-do. And you know what, I can't help but feel a little responsible for all of this. But in my defense, like most race wars, it was all a misunderstanding. There's a perfectly innocent explanation.
You see, it's like this: I took my Supermodel Wife out to the The Cinemark Palace theater on the Plaza to see Date Night a few nights ago. Well let me tell you, that was one damn funny flick. I laughed so much at the antics of Tina Fey and Steve Carell and the rest of the ensemble cast.
When the movie was over and we were walking out of the theater, I said "That movie was a RIOT!!!"
But I said "Riot" very loudly. Too loudly, as it turns out.
So... Sorry about all that.
