Early Thanksgiving Thanks

Yeah, so those of you who know me also know that I'm n a state of flux at the moment:  no internet at home, sporadic access from "work" and today happens to be a day that I do have access, and so (since school is out Wed-Fri and I won't be in new digs for another week) I'd like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU ...


Thank You for ... what?  wait, the Chiefs are 4-5 going into the toughest part of their schedule!  Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki and Peyton Manning have been hurt ALL YEAR and now Cassel is out and ... are you kidding me?  thank you?  for THIS mess???


well, yeah ...

THANK YOU for ...


... living in a time where even a displaced Chiefs fan like myself can keep up with my favorite team from a distance of hundreds of miles, even while living in the midst of "the enemy" (Broncoland)


... the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL:  it's not perfect, neither are the Chiefs, but it's football and it rocks!  (and the playoff system is STILL better than what the BCS has going on, but Geaux LSU!)


... having even a low-paying job, because there are literally millions in our country who can't find ANY work at all, so even though I'm not making much, I am making SOME and that's a whole lot better than NONE


... my daily bread, or ramen, or rice and beans, or whatever I eat:  given countless millions across the globe who don't have enough to eat, or shelter from the weather, or enough clothes, or whatever it is, I'm blessed beyond compare


... being born and Raised in Kansas City and having the opportunity to know that both major sports in town were started by two of the best owners (and best human beings) ever in their respective sports:  Lamar Hunt and Ewing Kaufman, two finer people have seldom blessed one community as these two men have done with Kansas City


... Brian Waters and TonyG and Eddie Kennison and Joe Delaney and Derrick Thomas and every other fabulous player and person who's ever graced our Chiefs roster, and all they've done for  others along the way


... Chris and Joel and Arrowhead Pride, and the chance to be on a blog where anyone and everyone can not only speak their mind about the Chiefs, but about pretty much anything else as well (and those of you who've followed me here for a couple of years know that I do just that, and I don't plan to stop any time soon)


and finally ... THANK YOU! ... for all the friendship and cameraderie from fellow Chiefs fans and now Brothers and Friends (or Sisters, as the case may be) ... Gatsby (Pam?  hoo boy, I'll get you for that!) and Steve and Kabrink and Texas Chief and 85 and The Blogger Formerly Known As Bajah ... MN and Aiken and LadyChief and WorL4Chiefs and Masons and Stag and Woody and Matt and about 50 or 500 others far too numerous to mention ... to all of you, to everyone in Chiefs Nation, wherever you may be, and even to those of you in Raiders Nation, or Donkeyland or Chargersvllle ... to anyone and everyone, a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU


may all of you have the best Thanksgiving ever (and to Craig in Calgary, Saskwatch and our other friends in Canada, the 51st State, enjoy and L'Chaim!  To Life!)


Another day above ground, it's another thing to be thankful for (insert smiley face here)


catch you all soon ...
