Programming note: I realize there was no Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Afternoon AfterÃ¢â‚¬Â this week. The reason is simple: I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see any games except for some of the Thursday night Dolphins win over the Panthers, and even that was in a bar, so I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get as much out of it as usual. Especially considering the Patriots-Saints Monday Night game, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be back in business this week.
Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday, to say the least. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not a big eater (though, you know, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have some turkey and stuffing) and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t generally prefer pies. I just donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even get it. The only thing we seem to be celebrating in earnest is gluttony; nobodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sitting there with their gravy-soaked meat discussing the pilgrims or whatever.
