    The Hammerstein Ballroom is a small venue fondly remembered for holding ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) events in the 1990s and 2000s.
    How can somebody who frequently boasts of millions of regular viewers have an event at the Hammerstein Ballroom?
    Does that mean that this man who brags about tripling the ratings of Leno and says he has more viewers than the Today Show
    and Good Morning America put together and then some, draws worse than the smallest major North American wrestling promotion in the 1990s?

    Does he mean to tell us that not one fan out of six thousand will attend a 1500 person capacity event and that he draws worse than a WWE house show?

    Howard Math. WHOO.

    Over on SFN they are wondering why Stern did not have the party at Madison Square Garden, which according to them, Stern could sell out no problem.

    You could put every person listening to him at a given minute on a a Monday-Wednesday, PLUS all the Thursday and Friday live listeners, with room to spare, at MSG.

    Andrew Dice Clay sold out MSG during his zenith in tut 80s. Howard may have in tut 90s, but nowadays he'll be lucky to not have tut Hammerstein Ballroom with empty sections.

    It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is marbles.

    It'll be interesting to listen to... not sure if it's a Sirius Superbowl Weekend promo event (likely) or something to promote wiggy (free listening stream, etc. 50/50), or a b-day show (unlikely). I'll record it and will be very interested to to see how many "A-list" guests appear that couldn't divulge their attendance in advance, as well as how long they talk/perform. His live events don't have the best hype/entertainment ratio

    I'm confused as to why anyone would care what "A listers" show up, unless they are musicians. Am I supposed to get excited if I hear over the radio that George Clooney is there?

    Yes, you're supposed to pull your pants down and immediately jerk yourself off to orgasm at the fact that Celebrity X managed to show up to wish Howard Stern a happy (60th) birthday. And YOU got to listen to it.

    I don't give a shit either, but their making a big deal about the "names they aren't allowed to mention"... it's interesting to see what reality delivers

    Don't forget, that according to Wiggy, people instantly and uncontrollably drop their draws in the presence of Yoko BethO and jack off till they drop.
