Happy Thanksgiving

While I know some may find me a hypocrite- as I despise the team in Washington DC for what I feel is their blatant;y racist or at least insensitive and dated team name- for celebrating Thanksgiving, a day some feel is also a farce.

But I realize Thanksgiving means something different to different people, but for me- growing up on the Best Coast I hardly got to see the Lions play or hear a story that gave them predominant mention.

Thanksgiving was different though. I confess predate the internet and the Sunday ticket so as a fan, on Thanksgiving I got the Lions for pregame stories and features. I could actually see the game live while sporting my colors and jumping over furniture

While this season hasn't gone the way we'd like, or many of us expected, it is still not over. There's another chance to compete against the Texans, and just like Calvin said all we can do is keep on grinding.

In the scheme of life, I'm thankful for so many things. Brave people serving our country, my family and friends. We may take these for granted at times, but on this special day- before you go pitch a tent to be 100th in line for Black Friday- please take a moment to remember your blessings. We get to come here and debate Lions football, while many others, and even many of us go through difficult times. So count your blessings and be Thankful. Help people (or animals) when you can, everyone can use it from time to time. If you've thought about volunteering, give it a try.

Now that I got that off my chest, I'd also like to be reminded what things are you thankful for about the Lions that have made them so endearing to us ?- We 're a different breed of fan. No matter how the game goes tomorrow, the Lions have etched a special place in our hearts.

Happy Thanksgiving , peace love joy and happiness
