Speaking of Bob Eubanks...

More fallout from KTLA's Rose Parade coverage...

 There were four things of note that commentator Bob Eubanks said during yesterday's rose parade telecast:

1. During the passing of one equestrian group whose mounts were previously wild mustangs, Eubanks made mention how the riding group
is training three young horses of that breed in preparation to replace the three oldest ones. He then said something like "Kind of
like what happens to aging TV commentators." Ouch! But was he referring to Stephanie Edwards or himself?

2. In pointing out some float's details to his booth buddy Michaela Pereira, he can clearly be heard calling her Stephanie.

3. He referred to Yosemite's Half Dome as "30,000 feet tall."

4. He closed the broadcast with mention that he was in the last year of his contract with KTLA and that he hoped to be back next year but if not it's been fun. Buh-bye Bob.
