Today is the last Thursday in the month of November and in the United States that makes it Thanksgiving.  It was not always on his date and or even on the same date across the county.  President Lincoln Lincoln proclaimed the date to be the final Thursday in November in an attempt to foster a sense of American unity between the Northern and Southern states.  Because of the ongoing Civil War and the Confederate States of America’s refusal to recognize Lincoln’s authority, a nationwide Thanksgiving date was not realized until Reconstruction was completed in the 1870s.  In 1941 President Franklin D. Roosevelt moved the date to the 4th Thursday of the month in a moved that moved the holiday further from Christmas in hopes of giving the economy a boost.  Here is to enjoying your Thanksgiving day with friends and family and hoping there is more than toast and popcorn on the table.

Do you remember where you were on Thanksgiving four years ago?  Tiger Woods does.  Here is a blow by blow account from the New York Post of how it all unfolded.  As of that day Tiger had won 14 major championships and was well on his way to making a run at Jack’s record of 18.  Since then Tiger has come up empty in the 16 majors.  The once feared and admired golfer has turned in a cheater and punchline.  Kinda makes you want to stop eating at Perkins.

The NBA keeps playing and the Pacers keep winning.  The boys in Blue and Gold are the only one loss team in the NBA and are doing it in very convincing fashion.  Next up are the Wizards at home Friday night.

I hope everyone has a great day and enjoys dinner as much as Big Baby Davis enjoys his.  Macaroni!
