Thanksgiving Thoughts

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. Always a great get together with family where we stuff our faces and imbibe our favorite adult beverages. Some thoughts for the day:

Keeping Julio Lugo and making him the the "utility player extraordinaire" isn't the worst idea in the world. Granted he's an expensive part, but he is an upgrade over Alex Cora and can play the OF, too.

If the Minnesota Vikings fire head coach Brad Childress and acquire QB Matt Cassel in the offseason, they are a lock to be in the NFC Championship next year.

It's time to take the Thanksgiving game tradition away from the Detroit Lions. They are an embarrassment.

I haven't attended a high school Thanksgiving Day game in at least 20 years and have no intention on putting an end to that streak anytime soon.

I propose that the presidential inauguration day be moved up to one month after the election, as opposed to waiting until late January of the New Year. George W. Bush might as well be in Crawford, TX on vacation, because he's been mostly invisible since February. He isn't engaged in the presidential process and seemingly has all the interest in performing his duties as your average employee who hates his job and just gave his two week notice.

One thing I'm not thankful for today: the return of John Kerry to the U.S. Senate for six more years. Kerry is a bloviating loafer, who's the 100th most effective member of the U.S. Senate.

I hope A-Rod and Madonna have a happy first Thanksgiving together.

We'll pay 1,000 reporters to follow you around at work, Kev, criticising everything you do, dishonestly covering up all your achievements while flagrantly exagerating your mistakes, all the while fawning over your competition in the office. All on national TV and newsprint, 24/7/365. We'll see how interested you are in your job 46 months from now. Deal?

Matt Cassell is the next Scott Zolak. I haven't seen a backup this overrated since Bishop. I'll tell you, 5 turnovers in the driving rain is what I pay $240 plus parking to see in these trying economic times. The curse of Patriot Place begins - I warned you all 2 years ago when they were breaking ground.

Good job by Plaxico finally missing his foot with one shot this year, his leg must have gotten in the way.
