    This party was never about Howard's Birthday.... only about Sirius's attempt to find out the power of Howard. I wonder how many billionaires will be in attendance to donate more than 500 dollars to Bianca's Furry Friends Foundation of America. :uscratch:

    We were just young and restless and bored
    Living by the sword
    And we'd steal away every chance we could
    To the backroom, the alley, the trusty woods

    Don't be fooled, this is Sirius' Super Bowl Party. Howig himself has said they have been trying for years to get him to do a remote during the Super Bowl week end. Now the Super Bowl is in NYC and SUDDENLY Sirius wants to throw Howie a birthday Bash? It is the Sirius Super Bowl Party and they had to put Howies name on it somehow to get him to do it. Sirius gets the boost for holding something on one of the biggest tourist and media week ends of the year, and the Liar gets an ego boost because they called it a Birthday Bash to get him out of his house for an unscheduled broadcast.

    Howard's the girl with the curls in the hair. The buttons and the pins and the loud fan fare :grad:

    Howard is sharing the cost for the party.
    Howard wanted to throw Howard a party.

    I am sure his bitching about his billionaire friends only donating 25 dollars to NSAL will stymie up some big wigs to donate 50....after all....it's his Birthday.

    I still think this is Sirius' last ditch effort to stop the exodus of Howard listeners and get some value from his contract. Odds are they would have done something this weekend with or without Howard to capitalize on the Super Bowl being in NY. So their risk is minimal because if it wasn't the Howard Stern Birthday Party, it would have been Sirius' NFL Radio's Super Bowl Bash or something like that.

    They already were going to spend the money on the venue, talent, and marketing like they did with their one of concerts. So they just repurposed for Howard. In fact, it may be cheaper in some aspects because it probably cost more to pay Metallica for a full concert than a bunch of lead singers without their back up bands for one or two songs.

    right I think celebs and rich Hamptonites are asking for tickets for their no name family members. If you donated big you get tickets, if not gary shames you on the phone

    I think this is a mutual event they both have something to gain. With the contests and streaming they both can guage/boast about his audience and potential (depending on spin)
    Howard will alao use it for his video negotiations.

    If he fails he can blame a host of other people or reasons

    He has to be looking at the success of Glen Beck and thinking he could do the same thing

    There is no exodus of fans to stop. They will have a count of how many people listen on line. The number will be very low, they will then set their contract offer accordingly
