There were no fewer than ten inaugural balls last night, capping off the festivities as Barack Obama was sworn in as our 44th President. There was the Home States Ball , the Commander in Chief Ball and the Youth Ball just to name a few. Pretty soon it will be almost like the BCS with so many Balls representing different parts of the country and groups. In order to save taxpayer money, they could even go after title sponsors like the college bowl games. The Neighborhood Ball, Built by the Home Depot has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
Even with the current variety, there were a few events that did NOT make the Society pages this morning.
The I Ball sponsored by Apple-the place to see and be seen for the Me Generation
The National Enquirer Sleaze Ball, sponsored by Legalzoom.com and hosted jointly by members of the ABA and media types
The Dodge Ball-a bailout affair for UAW officials featuring a Hemi-powered revolving dance floor
The Helluva Good Cheese Ball known for its great spread at the buffet table
The Spit Ball by Listerine-attended by many famous athletes and hosted by a certain Baltimore Ravens defensive back
By now I can hear the collective groaning. I know I've missed a few. Post your ideas, I know I'm not the only punster in this family!
