Sorry I did not get this to you yesterday, but I was too damn busy watching the Super Bowl commercials, and Danica Patrick getting a massage.
Comes out that Captain Sully was not the only one to make a big landing on the Hudson. Tonight we get to see how big a splash Anthony Bourdain makes when he heads north from his hometown of New York and up the Hudson River.
There is something about a nuke plant and strange crabs (I assume the non-penicillin variety).
For those of you who sometimes think that Tony is just a little too much of a smartass, here is a YouTube clip of a precocious 10-year old girl who actually leaves Bourdain almost speechless. I think he was trying to come up with something to say that did not include a tirade of foul language.
If you are so inclined, the Travel Channel provides us with more stuff about the show than you probably want to know.
What would a typical No Reservations show be without a collection of quips from Tony, often seeming to be a non sequitur to the topic at hand, and not infrequently with references to bodily functions and sexual innuendos, such as,
"Not to brag, but I could handle this assignment while getting a colonoscopy and still make it in time".
And given the show’s proximity to Groundhog Day, there was even a dinner with Bill Murray, where it’s Bill, rather than Tony, who waxes philosophical.
Also, I have been promised a scene with Tony sailing on the Hudson River. I’ll bet there are some who would like to see Bourdain lashed to the mast—à la Murray in What About Bob.
What do you mean, “how about seeing Bourdain lashed to the keel?”
Now, that’s just mean.
