Watch, someone will take that headline seriously and I'll get in trouble for some kind of animal abuse.
Sure started off nice with the Bears whupping the Lions in Detroit.
With backup QB Chase Daniel four-upping Matthew Stafford (by throwing for 2TDs while Stafford threw for 2 INTs).
Otherwise their stats were almost perfectly even.
Bears D is still freaking me out, and the Shuffle they did in the end zone after Eddie Jackson's gorgeous interception for the TD was whipped cream on the pumpkin pie.
How perfect WAS that?
This'll sound odd coming from me, but we went vegan Thanksgiving this year.
We had a small tamale factory going in our house, and later it was actually... delish.
I've never not had something on the grill for Thanksgiving.
So, weird but there you go.
Somewhere in the day, got a prompt to read an article about the Cubs maybe staying in house for the Jim Hickey replacement.
Guy named Tommy Hottovy, who's the current "run prevention coordinator".
(Personally, "run prevention coordinator" is so cool I don't think I'd trade that title even if I got the Pitching Coach job.)
He's apparently greatly respected by management and players.
And he's got amazing communication skills.
I'm all for this in-house stuff.
The new hitting coach, Anthony Iapoce, was the minor league hitting instructor when lots of the current Big League position players were the minor league position players.
Okay I'm gonna go sneak a little more apple pie and then... snore probably.
Hope your Thanksgiving was amazing.
