It is almost that time of year. And around here, it means that it IS that time of year…
The APIAS.net crew will be celebrating a epic tradition this weekend, Thankstaking. Starting with Friday night’s Thankstaking feast, which has all the charm of your normal Thanksgiving feast–turkey, ham, devilled eggs, booze, fistfights, blood, cops–you know, the usual, with one charming exception.
We’re not thankful. You are.
Today is the day when we reflect on all the good and great things we’ve given the world this year.
Here’s a brief list from your neighborhood cowboy. More during the official carving of the beast.
Tennessee football, you’re welcome. You’re welcome for my purchase of ESPN Gameplan to watch 7 (and counting) losses.
Tigers baseball (and mlb.tv) you’re welcome for the $20 a month eDay and I dropped to watch the Tigs and A’s lose a collective 174 games (and yes, this includes the play-in game).
Blogfrica, you’re welcome for all the ADD wit and charm we supply you with on a semi-regular basis. Oh and for the completely and semi-ridiculous live-blogs.
Eday, 2SL, and Smooth, you’re welcome for all my failed attempts to teach you how to use Excel and Paint. Seriously guys?!?
SPS Field, you’re welcome for my giving you plenty of time to get your ten (10!) picks and a few witty comments in and for not reaching through the internet’s tubes at you for causing me to have to throw it together late, and without complete graphics, almost every week. You’re all welcome.
To anyone I’ve forgotten: You’re welcome. And do a better job of getting me to notice you next year.
I’m taking this week off from calculating totals and whatnot, but I think E is still rolling the field. Whatever.
On to this week’s games. And you’re welcome.
