He did these lists for years, so I'm doing one about all of his years. 

As we say goodbye to Dave tonight, I think of all the things we'll miss from his show; stupid pet tricks, throwing footballs into cabs driving by the Ed Sullivan Theatre, dropping things from high above the Theatre to make them go splash, stupid human tricks and so on and so forth. There's a lot we'll miss as fans let's face it, but I'm not sure anything has stood the test of time and last as long on Dave's show, then the Top 10 List.
