Out of the Blue

It's Thanksgiving here in the U.S., so happy holiday to all who are celebrating, and best wishes to all in the hope that you have reason to be thankful even if this is not celebrated where you are. Things are well underway here in the BlueTower, as the Chex Mix is mixed and the turkey is nearing perfection even as I type these words. I'm looking forward to spending time with the family, watching some football, and lapsing into a food-induced coma. We also have thanks to express, and most appropriate to this space, thanks to all of you for your support of this site over all these years.

Speaking of football, here are last week's results: Batman 12-1 (I don't think we can give credit for posting a Thursday winner on Sunday), Cutter 12-2, Jivaro 11-2 (skipped Eagles/Skins), mag and Blue 11-3, and Creston and Verno 10-4. Here are my picks for this week: I guess we'll have to see if posting so late means we just shouldn't count the early game: Texans, Cowboys, Patriots, Seahawks, Falcons, Bengals, Steelers, Titans, Broncos, Bears, Chargers, Saints, Rams, Giants, and Panthers.

Thankful Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Humbug 2.
Soccer Balls 2.
Stories: Printer ink that's pricier than champagne.
Discovery Cancels Dirty Jobs. They should have Mike Rowe tell the crew.
Chevy Chase is leaving NBC's sitcom 'Community'. People too close to liking him again.
Media: Thanksgiving Turkey Cooked with Flashlights.
1980s Video Game Companies Factory Footage.
Wedding Photographer's Hair Catches Fire.
The Funnies: Brevity.
Pure Evil Cartoon - Savage Chickens.
Follow-up: Puerto Rican boxing champ Camacho brain dead after shooting.
Twinkies bakers say they'd rather lose jobs than take pay cuts. Thanks Cutter.

Meh, I figured the Texans would win but I was really hoping the Lions would pull it out for once. Thanks a lot, Seph, you jerk! Tell your jerk team to get it together!

From the stands it was a pretty amazing game. The booing from that bullshit touchdown lasted a whole quarter. Shitties of the game were: Schwartz throwing that challenge flag because he was "mad", Pettigrew getting that ball stripped, and Hanson missing that field goal (maybe Schwartz for kicking it on 3rd). I've watched Suh's latest "dirty play" over and over and unlike the rest of the world apparently, I can't see how that's supposed to be intentional.

edit: Really during the game I just kept thinking how shitty the Texans pass coverage must be... For the Lions it was a game more reminiscent of last year before the rest of the NFL figured out how to shut us down.

edit2: Ok over and over (like 3 times) on TV that apparently wasn't in very good quality or I was tired... wtf, just saw it on youtube and yes I see the kick now.
