Happy Thanksgiving folks. If you’re an international fan, today is a national holiday in America where the preferred manner of celebration revolves around wearing stretchy pants to the nice dinner table in order to stuff our faces more effectively, getting drunk and arguing with family about politics, religion, and how we like our steaks done, and, of course, the magical Thanksgiving triple-header. This week we’ve got a spectacular Thursday lineup of three divisional rivalry games, including the Detroit Lions taking on the surprisingly-good Chicago Bears, the high powered offenses of the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints squaring off, and a high noon showdown between the middling Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins. Naturally, it’s just good, clean, family fun to have a “Cowboys & Indians” game on Thanksgiving. Sorry Fooch, don’t fire me.

Anyway, I’ll be keeping it short this time around, as it’s imperative that I conserve my energy. You know, in order to do battle. A battle against filling up too early when there are 15 different ways to ingest carbohydrates, and still resist the urge to sleep through the football games. Have a wonderful holiday, my friends.
