HAPPY THANKSGIVING! HOLIDAY VIDEO FROM ME TO YOU: I'd like to thank Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, enduring Heat star Dwyane Wade and newly enriched Marlin Giancarlo Stanton for joining me on this year's Thanksgiving video. Always heard Philbin resembled a pilgrim. Now we find out. Stanton's picking up the tab on dinner, by the way. Click on Bird Day '14 to watch the video.
NFL BIRD DAY PICKS: The NFL’s Thanksgiving Day tradition kicks off King Sport’s Week 13, the ninth consecutive season it’s been an all-you-can-eat tripleheader. Family, football and food -- what could be better! At our house the first game starts as the turkey is just beginning to brown in the oven, the second game is on as we give thanks and eat, and the third game coincides with our attempts to wake Uncle Buddy, who by then is deep-dozing from a day-long conversation with Jack Daniel chased by an overload of Tryptophan. I like all three home-team favorites to win outright today, but only two of them to cover the point spread. Click on Bird Day Gems for all three predix capsules.
Poll result: Support for Al Golden is split but shaky: Apparently not all of you are thankful for Al Golden. We asked in the previous blogpost, and "weak" or "no" support for the Hurricanes' football coach was 52.4 percent, edging "strong" or "medium" support at 47.6%. However, at the extremes, "no" swamped "strong" by 36.9-15.6. I would note (I pay attention) that support for Golden was running slightly favorable overall in the natural flow of votes until a late swarm of negative votes suggesting an orchestrated effort. Hey, whatever. Free country. Power to the people!
