When I was a kid, my parents went out for New Year's Eve and I stayed home with my brother. I usually had Jeno's Pizza Rolls for dinner and watched some of the Astro-Bluebonnet Bowl, the one and only sporting event that took place on New Year's Eve. After the football game, I listened to my favorite radio station, 95 Fabulous KIMN-AM count down the year's top songs. At midnight, KIMN played the year's #1 song, and then changed its request line phone number so that the last 4 digits matched the year, e.g. 241-1969. Then I usually decided to go outside in the freezing cold and shoot baskets in my driveway for a while. And then I went to bed.
