I made more stops on Thanksgiving than a mailman.
I was off to in-laws, brother-in-laws, gas stations and back home. Chasing football games and turkey.
But I kind of like the way it all turned out. I got a kick out of watching the Cowboys and Longhorns win exciting games. Each with a nail-biting kick on the final play of the game
to secure the victory.
I watched part of the boring Detroit/Green Bay game at one relatives' house. Then ate turkey and all the trimmings. Saw a man named Suh act like a punk and moved on.
Then over to my mom's watching part of the Cowboys' game, more food, pound cake and chocolate chips were scooped up for later.
Then finished the Dallas game off at my diehard Cowboy fan brother-in-law's house. Heck, he had Brad Sham on the radio and I was sitting a foot or two from a huge flat screen,
if I closed my eyes, I could imagine being in Jerry's World. The turkey tasted better and it was certainly a whole lot cheaper.
Then back north listening the Aggies/Longhorns fight it out of the radio. Stopped for some $2.99 gas in Lindale and kept on truckin'. Got home just in time to watch the final quarter
of what could be the final meeting of longtime rivals Texas and Texas A&M.
Wife went shopping and I crashed in the recliner, the turkey had put me down the count.
But as far as Thanksgivings go - I consider it a huge success. To got indulge in Food, Family and Football.
Yes, I am truly thankful to have a great family, a job I enjoy and food to eat while I watch football.
Even if the Rangers did not win the World Series. There's still home for my other teams.
