A New Year’s Regression

Norm MacDonald discusses his New Year's resolution to begin gambling again:

I haven't made a single bet in the last couple of years. But that's about to change.

It came to me on New Year’s Eve, when I was sitting around with my friend Adam Eget, who manages The World Famous Comedy Store. We were trying to come up with New Year’s resolutions. Adam, sober now for over a year but nonetheless still somewhat interesting, said, "Hey, do New Year’s resolutions always have to be good for you?" The thought had never occurred to me. It’d be a helluva lot easier to stick with a New Year's resolution if your resolution was to become a big fat guy, right? And I had just watched Week 17 and picked all the relevant games correctly. Was Adam on to something? Within minutes, my decision was made.
