Happy Chanukah, and Happy Thanksgiving! I can think of no better present than a Lions win, so let’s see what we can do about that today, hmm?
Much more Chanukah content to come when I get home and have access to a scanner again. Until then, remember that we have much to be thankful for, such as:
–all the swear words of Jim Leyland tirades past,
–Max Scherzer’s eyes,
–an owner who cares about winning, and about Detroit,
–those times Paws holds his tail behind his back during the National Anthem,
–the joy given to us by Brayan Pena’s twitter feed this past season,
–hot chocolate and Bailey’s in the Comerica stands late in the season,
–the dogged resilience of Alex Avila in the face of tremendous and injurious adversity,
–the new video board (still),
–everything about Jose Iglesias’ defense,
–another division championship,
–this thing, which I just found in the hotel desk drawer:
and the cross-holiday pleasure of having real live actual Jewish cats on the team, so that we may at long last properly celebrate Jewish holidays in cartoon form.
Happy Thanksgivvukah, kids and kittens!
