Chelle’s Picks, Special Thanksgiving Day Edition

The best part about Thanksgiving is that while we’re waiting for the food to be done, football’s on TV. And after the food has been served, football’s on TV.  And while we’re eating, football’s on TV.  And when the carb overload (no—it’s not the tryptophan) makes us pass out, football’s still on TV. 

Good Lord and America the Beautiful, we’d like to thank you for football.  Football gives us a reason to truly come together as a family of fans wearing the same colors, singing the same chants, pulling for the same cause.  Football allows us to turn the channel away from the Macy’s Day parade and tune out great aunt Edna’s droning complaints about the dry stuffing.  Football can lift our spirits, or mask the real reason for our tears. 

 So hurry up in the kitchen and get to the living room.  Stuff that turkey with the giblets still inside, lay out the cranberries ringed with the can pressings, top the pumpkin pie and sniff a quick whippet—cause it’s football time in America!!  Let me hear you HOLLAH!!!!!

Three to Watch:

New England vs. Detroit:  The Thanksgiving gods at least granted one holiday wish to Charlie Brown’s pathetic little friend Linus—he doesn’t have to get up early to watch a good game on Thursday.  Anyone online casino canada who thinks casino online Matt Stafford is going to pose a threat to the reigning king of the AFC needs to review Sunday night’s game.  Peyton didn’t need three interceptions to lose to the Patriots—granted, they didn’t help his cause, but he didn’t need them.  The Colts would have lost that game fair and square, on the shoulders of Tom Brady.  Hmmm, shoulders.  Now that’s a reason to get up on Thursday! 

 New Orleans vs. Dallas:  Goodell made at least one good scheduling decision this season, although he probably thought the odds would be favoring a different team.  This game is going to be fantastic!!!!—for a ‘Skins fan.  I seem to remember Jay Glazer saying something last week about Sean Payton wanting his running back to be completely, absolutely, 100% healthy before returning to the game.  (Gee, I wish our coaches had thought of that!)  To translate—he wants to watch Reggie Bush come out fresh as a ripe peach and decimate the Dallas D-line!!  Have a fantasy team?  You should pick Brees and Bush.  They are going to put up some big numbers on turkey day! 

 Cincinnati vs. New York Jets:  In other years, I might have had to finagle an invitation to my sister-in-law’s place to catch the Thursday night game on the NFL network, which I refuse to pay for—(yeah I’m cheap like that.  It’s America, and football should be free.  I spend enough money on beer.)—not for this foregone conclusion.  As Terrell Owens says, the Bengals are terrible.  As Ochocinco says, can someone please explain this to me?  They have brilliant players, a decent coach, and they lost to the Buffalo Bills?  The Jets, on the other hand, are at that point in the season when they can do no wrong—the winning spot, I believe they call it.  You’ll have to excuse an old Skins fan; it’s been a long time since we’ve been there.  Nightie night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!
