I am a glutton for punishment!!  Too much food!!
 
But I tell you what, I went down to feed the less fortunate yesterday in DC.  3,000 people served.  The most amazing thing was how much they appreciated the meal we served.  They did not complain about anything.
 
It truly does make me appreciate the things my family has.  And how fortunate I was to live the live I have lived!   And to think I bitch about traffic, my fantasy football team, how I missed lunch, etc....  How petty!
 
Anyways, I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving.

I feel that I'm one of the luckiest people who has ever lived in the history of humans.  I didn't do it.  I just got lucky.
 
For Thanksgiving, I hope that everyone who protects us has the best day of their lives to date and many better days to come.
 
Luck to us all.

Well, another year to be grateful for hath passed, and, hopefully, unlike all of your respective Thanksgiving-day meals, it's time to upchuck this old thread back up, which, true story mind you, makes me reminisce about that special Thanksgiving about some 18 years ago or so when (great) aunt Ann (long gone now) threw up right at the table of the Thanksgiving-day feast. It was very white, mostly creamed onions... and bile it appeared...  Now,... off,... off!  Enjoy your mashed creamed corn and mashed sweet potatoes, fellas. ... ... ...  Anyway, we have this tradition in our (teeny-tiny and yet widely dispersed) family called "Naming of the Bird" where at the end of the meal (assuming we are all at the same table, in the same room, in the same house, at the same address, in the same town or city, in the same country,... hell,... on the same continent) we all join hands and "christen" that year's turkey with a "name".  That year, it was "Gobble Gobble Godfrey"!
 
...
 
Really, though, I want to extend a "Happy Thanksgiving" to all of my fellow Gridironers here.  Every time I visit the "(slowly but surely getting) old" site here, I am so grateful to have all of you helping me push this "effort" along and see this thing through. Now, really, go enjoy some turkey AND FOOTBALL!!!

Before we close this holiday of gratitude, I'd like to send a little love out to the (once) well-entrenched and well-esteemed Gridironer who started this thread way back when,... during the "genesis" chapter of "the Gridiron".  Our friend, FourTwoOh a.k.a. Kirk, as we all finally came to know, had a rough '05 to say the least.  He may not even read this, but I truly hope he is on the mend.  Not having him around the way he once was is truly a loss for us, but not having himself be the way he had been must be unfathomably trying.  I am thankful today for the fairly good health I've been granted...  I hope the same for our old friend Kirk...

I, too, hope Kirk is as well as can be. I'd love to see him back here on the Grid! He can even have his old spot back next year in the GOTG league (well not his old spot, but one that will be vacated next year)

Thanksgiving,... a time to give "thanks for giving", for "thanks and giving", as well as for "thanks and forgiving".
 
On my part, I am thankful for a lot, all the usual general stuff, but most of all, on a personal level, an incredible mother and wife, who let me grow into the man I want to be, and my vocation of philosophy, the conduit to that growth.
 
Gratitude is an attitude and way of life.  It is, however, facilitated by "having right perspective" for that is how we (come to) know what truly merits a grateful attitude.  On the other hand, when gratitude is deserved, it shouldn't be manifest only at this moment or some other.  Thank yous here and there should only be upsurges of the generous and gracious attitude one always has.  That doesn't mean you ignore the facts of the matter, lay them out on the table and encourage growth or, at least, improvement among your fellow man.  As I just stated, "perspective" is the key to cultivating graciousness.  Gratitude is a two-way street.  Mere attitude, in that ("other") pejorative sense, isn't; it is a mere one-way street and probably a dead-end one at that.
 
Anyway, my "thanksgiving" (with mommy) will really be celebrated as per my last message here:  http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=58;a ction=display;num=1037120039;start=25.  Today, Gino's working, and I'm writing papers. It's all good, though.  While it'll be nice to someday celebrate Thanksgiving on the "correct" Thursday, I got a nice neighbor, Southern Baptist chap, who just knocked on my door in fact.  He is aware of our predicament today and wanted to make sure I didn't want to head on over with them to the dinner they are having at their church and also, moreover, wanted to confirm that he will be bringing some Thanksgiving dinner goodies back for Gino and me. The philosophers are having a get-together, too.  I'll see if I can at least drop on by.  Concerned about turkey rights discussions and tofu turkey, though. ...
 
Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Happy Thanksgiving!
 
I am thankful for a wonderful mother who, within reason, is happy when I'm happy, a wonderful wife who, within reason, dreams my dreams, and, not the turkey that won't be on our table as my wife puts in a day of work at work and I put in a day of work right here, but a feisty, NO-QUIT little bird that we found helpless one inclement, windy day a couple months ago that has grown into our hearts and will go on to live a very unique, unexpected life for a Bulbul bird hatched in nest somewhere around the Manoa Valley Safeway.  We didn't ask for him to begin with.  We surely didn't intend on being stuck with him.  But, boy, has this little guy helped Gino and me gain a little perspective... on the "bigger picture" and "bottom line" of my life.  Heck, I have it HARD trying to convey the "bigger picture" and "bottom line" of this web site.  But, I am thankful for the five seasons (worth of experiences) I've had here.  It's been a great run, an experience from which I've learned a ton.

Its a thanksgiving tradition
 
Every year as my family gathers at my house, sometimes as many as 16 people, we men prepare for the day. I bought several cases (3) of beer. Some imported and a few cheap cases of Bud Light. The Bud Light is in the aluminum bottles. The ones that are too cold to hold with the bare hand. My brother in law will bring turkeys fully cooked and ready. There will be lots of wine and lots of snacks. The big kids will go to the basement and play Guitar Hero on the Play Station 3.  I think its up to 3 now anyway. It will be Cranked way up. Its not pleasent when they miss a note.  
The adult males will do thier best to suck down all the beer. Imports first, mind you. Everyone starts to get loaded then you eat and have to start all over again. The girls will fight the entire time in the kitchen. Getting everything thats been bothering them all year off their chests. There will be several slammed doors and lots of yelling. Of course one of them will be constantly locked in the bathroom. No matter, the guys will go in the backyard and pee behind the shed. Happens every year! We wouldn't have it any other way.
 
To my Gridiron brothers: I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving and I hope you have a shed to pee on.
 
To my Gridiron sisters: Callie and Froggie, I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving as well. Beware...Dont go I my kitchen unless you want to get it all out.
