Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Today we give thanks to EXCESS. You know, the stuff that makes America the greatest country on the face of the earth. Today, we’re gonna eat, drink, watch NFL, college football and then shop more, better and harder than ever.
For the NFL, we have one good game, one between garbage teams and a finale that I frankly prefer standing in line outside a Wal-Mart to get a 32″ TV for $148.
Houston – Detroit: looking for a good one here. Houston, believe it or not is still smarting over Green Bay destroying them in that Sunday Night game. They want to play well. Detroit is underachieving, but very talented and back on the national stage. Unfortunately, douchebag Skip Bayless is right. Detroit’s gonna win this one, since they haven’t won on Thanksgiving in forever.
Washington – Dallas: this game is going to suck, but the media wants to suck the Cowboys so badly, you’ll hear nonsense about the great Bob Griffin – Tony Romo QB “battle”. Bottom line: Dallas can get stops. Washington can’t. Look for Dallas to win the biggest game in NFL history.
New England – New York: New England is playing well. Most expect them to win. Jets are awful. Jets need a win way more than the Patriots. Look for the Jets to win tonight and give the New York media something to write about.
Texas University plays TCU tonight, but so what? Both of those teams play in the Xbox 12. It’ll probably end up 60-50 and someone on local sports talk will think that’s an awesome result.
As far as Thanksgiving goes, it’s very traditional for us. Turkey, stuffing, collard greens, macaroni & cheese, gravy, dinner rolls and a ham on the side. Did I ever mention I don’t like ham? My wife does so there’s nothing I can do about it. My wife also made a coconut cake that looks fabulous but turned out a touch dry:
I just saw something in a Skip Bayless – Stephen A. Smith debate that I have to address in the next post. By the way who is the chick between them? Despite the fake hair, she’s smokin! Bayless can’t understand who has lasagne on Thanksgiving. I’ve seen it, but I don’t condone it.
Anyway, my macaroni & cheese is a spectacular result, as always. Thanks against to Patti Labelle. I used whole wheat noodles this time.
It’s going to be gluttony.
I have three more posts for today; one will be on beer.
