Happy Thanksgiving!

Things I'm thankful for this year:
  • The Bears are 7-3 and in first in the NFC North. On a side note, I'm two wins away from winning $20 on the bet I placed at the Mirage sports book while in Vegas.
  • The Yankees, Phillies, Cardinals and White Sox did not win the World Series.
  • This summer, I accomplished two golf goals: I broke 90 on 18 holes and broke 40 on 9 holes.
  • It's been a good fall for sports-hate: Favre's farewell has not been a fond one, what with several injuries, a sexting scandal, a 69.5 QB rating, 17 interceptions, a 3-7 record, and two losses to the Packers; the Cowboys have only one more win than coaches this year; the Heat are just 8-7; and Notre Dame is just 6-5 and now mired in scandal. Is it wrong to be thankful that I have so much to hate?
  • Sunday nights in the summer will be much better now that Jon Miller and Joe Morgan are out as the announcers of Sunday Night Baseball.
  • The 8-5 Bulls are in first in a weak division and look to have a solid squad. Also, Derrick Rose is third in the NBA in scoring thus far.
  • Illinois and Michigan are bowl eligible, both for the first time since 2007.

  1. These are all worthy of thanks. And, add to that the fact that the Cubs will still be in AZ for their spring training. Life is good.
