Golden Nuggets: Thanksgiving Edition!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! While we certainly would love record-breaking traffic, I'd be more expectant of record-breaking lows since I'd imagine a lot folks will be enjoying family time. Of course, maybe being around your families throughout the day will drive you to NN at some point during the day!

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday (well behind my birthday, of course). It's a day of pigging out on great food and watching football all day long. At this point in my life I have no responsibilities for Thanksgiving other than to eat, drink, and be merry. All in all, life's good on Thanksgiving. Anybody have a differing opinion on that? Either way, I hope everybody has a great Thanksgiving. We'll have some content today. Tre9er has his Tweet-Bag scheduled for 7am and then we'll have an open thread starting at 9:15 for all of today's games. Have fun. Now, on to the links.
