Since many will be leaving for the long weekend, let me wish everyone a happy, safe Thanksgiving. Over eat, watch football, conect with loved ones and friends and take a moment to be greatful for what we and our country have. And take a minute or two to reach out to someone over the long weekend.
Happy Thanksgiving to all here! We're having about 20 relatives over to our house for the big day. The menu will include turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, corn, rolls, and pumpkin pie.
Go USC - I would love to see them play the Buckeyes!
I'm going to the girlfriend's parent's house this time. They are vegetarian so we'll be having eggplant parmesan, portabellos in white wine and lemon juice, and a Thai stirfry.
Oh yes, and homemade scotch.

We're driving down to Birmingham to my in-laws' house for din-din. Hopefully we'll hit the Birmingham Zoo on Friday. It's fun to watch the tigers pace back and forth and drool over the kids on the other side of the glass.
Also, 3 pro football games on Thursday!

Happy Turkey Day! I plan to be in a tryptophan-induced coma Thursday afternoon, but I've doubts as to whether the four little rinbergs and their cousin will allow it.... We're doing a deer ham, turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, squash casserole, devilled eggs, potato salad, couple of pies, and God-only-knows-what-else.
Yes, there will be a bunch of us. Yes, I will over-eat and regret it. No, I won't learn my lesson and I'll probably do it again at Christmas.
You guys take care and travel safely.

For those of you with SIRIUS Satellite Radio (or DISH Network w/ SIRIUS), my personal favorite Thankgiving tradition, Arlo Guthrie's "Alice’s Restaurant Massacree"...with four-part-harmony and feeling, etc...will be played for 24 hours non-stop!

Hopefully we won't have a repeat of last year's Thanksgiving. I was assigned to cover the high school's football game, which just so happened to be in the middle of a snowstorm. They hadn't started plowing the highways, so I crawled down to Woodbridge... and find out it's been postponed. I already know that won't happen, because this time, the school I cover's hosting it. But as soon as that's done, hauling ass up to New Hampshire with the family. They'd better leave plenty of leftovers. (ahem)
Its gone. The game that provided the if you score a touchdown while behind 2 touchdowns you get the ball back rule has ceased due to lack of funding. No more dulcid tones of Gary Bender explaining the ban on kick blocking and blitzes.
