"Thanksgiving, Oh why hast thou forsaken me?"

... as spoken by John Kitna prior to Detroit's yearly embarrassment with the largest number of fans per annual single viewing of a Lions game watching the Motor City Bad Boys of the gridiron swandive through the cranberry sauce into a vault of giblet gravy. Methinks Calvin Johnson forgot to wash his hands after downing a couple of turkey legs before the game's beginning, for the young man does have some greasy fingers today. (Correction: Calvin washed his hands after eating his brussels sprouts at halftime and scored his fourth touchdown of the year.)Ahhh, Thanksgiving is a time for watching NFL football and thinking about some major college rivalries going down this week. The major question that lingers on the minds and plagues the hearts of fans throughout the state where I dined (Alabama) is, "Who will win this year's Iron Bowl?" I'm sure, throughout the state, tables are being overturned, while families and in-laws debate the question with some lively fisticuffs. Luckily, my sister, the PhD candidate at Auburn sat quietly through the meal, as did her badass husband, Shane. No shite-talking occurred. Everyone was pleasant. Nobody mentioned those mighty Warhawks of Louisiana and their Pearl Harboring, err 9/11ing, err genociding escapade in Tuscaloosa, though I'm sure it just happened to slip their minds.

Also, neither my loving father (who last year told a man he could stick his thumb up his motherfucking ass when given the "Beware the thumb" warning prior to the 2006 Iron Bowl) nor I even happened to think of Auburn's somewhat embarrassing loss in Athens as Vern Lundquist cranked dat soulja boy two weeks ago.

Nope, haven't even thought of that one, especially after last Saturday. The Bama realist in me just won't talk shit to Auburn fans ever again. For no matter how sweet the juice of shit talking may be, it's really just not worth the squeeze. Plus, both my sister and her husband can kick my ass, and my dad's too old to fight, so why bother? At least our Thanksgiving meal and holiday was more pleasant for this unspoken agreement. And much, preferrable to the Turkey Day events which transpire in the trailer below, representing what I feel most embody the feeling of queasiness the Lions must feel about making the playoffs after this impending loss to the Green Bay Packers.

without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

I believe everything posted made a ton of sense.
But, consider this, what if you were to create a awesome title?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean ""Thanksgiving, Oh why hast thou forsaken me?"" is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo's home page
and see how they create news headlines to grab people to open the links.
You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.

When you’re ready to unwind after a long day, there’s nothing as relaxing as lying back and soaking in the tub. When you’re ready to fill up the tub, you’ll want it done properly and in style. That’s why the tub isn’t a tub until you’ve considered what type of bathtub tap to add.

When shopping for a new bathtub tap (also sometimes referred to as Roman tub fillers), keep in mind that they’re typically offered in the lighter finishes (like chrome and nickel tones), but there are a few exceptions. Also, you probably won’t need to worry too much about spout reach if your tub can already accommodate a bathtub tap. Also, many models include a hand shower as an added convenience.
