Giving thanks for football...

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

If you’ve ever seen me, you can pretty easily come to the conclusion that I don’t skip a lot of meals.
I was, at one time, more height-weight proportionate than I am now, but that was then.
But again, as you might be able to decipher without any Sherlock Holmes-esque deduction skills, I also like Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is, truth be told, my favorite non-Santa Claus-associated holiday.
Other than Father’s Day, Thanksgiving Day is the only day I can really lounge around the house and do nothing not of my own choosing.
I realize that sounds terribly unfair to my wife, but in truth, she’s very happy in the kitchen.
I’m very happy eating turkey and mashed potatoes. It’s a match made in Heaven.
But, long about now, the annual grousing begins about whether the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions should have exclusive rights to the Thanksgiving Day football games.
Thanksgiving Day games are nearly as iconic as that Super Bowl thing you may have heard about.
Football and overeating. Also, truly a match made in Heaven.
For football fans in New Mexico and surrounding areas, I understand your frustration.
