And yes, yes, I know that Thanksgiving is not all about football, that it's about family and the love in your heart and being thankful that the Injuns died gracefully and mainly from diseases thus avoiding major bloodshed, and blah blah blah. But still, this is go great! In fact, this is what I want to be thankful for this year. Lord, I am thankful that there is yet another occasion for which I am nickeled and dimed to death by huge businesses who do not care whether I live or die unless it means one or the other brings them more money. It is so, I don't know, pleasant. Or no, humanizing. It's very humanizing. And no tree-hugger who doesn't understand Business can take that away from me.
So as I remain on hold as my Thanksgiving dinner gets all cold and eaten, I want to remember to be thankful. Thank you, NFL and cable companies. And thank YOU, willing consumer. May we all shine as a beacon of Thanksgiving, now and forever more. Amen.
