“Big deal, New York. I drop the ball all the time”

New York’s Times Square ball drop on New Year’s Eve shouldn’t be confused with the expression “dropping the ball,” but there are jokes.

“Big deal, New York. I drop the ball all the time… #HappyNewYear” was posted on Twitter by Fake Rex Grossman on December 31, 2010. “Big deal New York. I drop the ball on a daily basis” was posted on Twitter by Rick Aaron on January 1, 2016.


Wikipedia: Times Square Ball
The Times Square Ball is a time ball located in New York City’s Times Square. Located on the roof of One Times Square, the ball is a prominent part of a New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square commonly referred to as the ball drop, where the ball descends down a specially designed flagpole, beginning at 11:59:00 p.m. ET, and resting at midnight to signal the start of the new year. In recent years, the ball drop has been preceded by live entertainment, including performances by musicians.

What’s the big deal with a ball dropping once a year in New York? I drop the ball almost daily.
