US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor leaves following a reception for Kennedy Center honorees in the East Room of the White House in Washington on December 8, 2013.

The honor of dropping this year’s New Year’s ball will go to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

The New York Times reports that Sotomayor will return to her home state of New York to hit the crystal button 60-seconds before midnight, before an estimated crowd of one million revelers.

One notable no-show will be outgoing mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has opted out of the celebration for the first time in 11 years to spend a quieter evening with friends and family.

 They can't invite a conservative from the Supreme Court. At the end of the countdown he points his shotgun at the ball and yells, "PULL!"

Who cares, Bloomberg is staying home because he is the lame duck mayor and no one cares. Who wants to be among 1 million morons standing around to watch a ball drop in NY, that last 60 seconds in the cold and crowds. Stupid. stay home morons watch it on TV if you want. dumb asses.
