Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Happy Thanksgiving to our team. May they find things to celebrate and be thankful for, even in the midst of the circus that has enveloped them since the last day of being 5-0. I hope they spend tomorrow eating good food with family, not "eating the poison" in the media around them.
I'm thankful for everything I've been blessed with, I feel very lucky.
In terms of our team, I'm thankful for: 7 wins and the significance of putting one foot in front of the other, getting to where they're going; the certainty that regardless of what recruits we get, and which coach is in charge, our D will improve next year; that none of us are in charge of those types of decisions (i.e. thankful for DB); the fact we've escaped any traumatic injuries (like the Rutgers kid); the fact that the FBI, and NCAA aren't breathing down our necks because we're a consistently "rotten to the core" program; Brock Mealer, his ability to walk, and his being unafraid to thank God for it; and lastly, despite the multiple fits of rage and minor heart attacks, the joys/excitement of this season, from DR's dilithiumness to the one D stop that mattered (2 pt conv vs Ill).
Thanks to all of you too, for making this small football-obsessed part of my life more enjoyable.
God Bless and be safe traveling.
