Thanksgiving is a great time of the year to get together with family, eat a ton of food, sit back, relax, and then eat more food. One of the annual traditions that my family had growing up was to go around the table and share what we're thankful for. So, in the spirit of thanksgiving, and that this is the best damn Chicago Bears website on the effin' planet, I thought we should take a minute to do the same.
Follow me past the jump to read some of what I'm thankful for.I'm thankful for 7-3, and for Calvin Johnson.
I'm thankful for Lovie Smith's passion and fire.
I'm thankful for Baby Gap for making clothes to fit Garrett Wolfe.
I'm thankful for Tommie's expiring contract.
I'm thankful for Justin Bieber, so that Kev H has music to fill up his iPod.
I'm thankful for all past, present, and future Brett Favre failures.
I'm thankful for Matt Jones' super-powers.
I'm thankful for Kam Chancellor.
And on a slightly more serious note:
I'm thankful for the '85 Bears, and especially for Ditka.
I'm thankful for George Halas. Walter Payton. Dick Butkus. And the 23 other Hall of Famers that are representing the Chicago Bears in Canton.
I'm thankful for being a fan of a team that has won nine League Championships.
I'm thankful for this great website, the extremely talented staff of writers (Just Dave excluded), and for all of the amazing members here who make it what it is. From the occasional-commenting charter posters (such as GG), to the people who post faster than most people type (Ditkavsworld). From the eternal optimist (DaHamsta) to the negative nancies (you "no" who you are).
I'm thankful for spouses and other family members that support our passions, share in our victories and remorse in our defeats. The ones that stay up late with us to watch Sunday night games, and yell at Lovie for throwing a challenge flag after calling a time out. The ones that openly mock random Packers fans on the street and the ones who don't mind being woken up by the giddy screams of a crazed lunatic after Hester proved we are who they thought we were.
To everyone here at WCG, and to each of your family members, I am thankful.
