Amber Ruffin had the rare opportunity to travel to the "actual farm" in upstate New York where they raise all the New Year's Eve balls to pick out the one for Times Square.
Bill Bell of the Bell Family Ball Farm graciously shows Ruffin his balls, which she deems breathtaking. When one of his balls gets loose, she helps to corral it, and Bill Bell is impressed with her natural ball-handling talents.
New Year's Eve with Carson Daly airs tonight on NBC.
Andy Hunsaker has a head full of sitcom gags and nerd-genre lore, and can be followed @AndyHunsaker if you're into that sort of thing.
