Thanksgiving Picks: That's My Dog...


According to tradition, Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate who, and what, you have in your life. In reality, we all know it's just some commercialized buffet that does more to support diabetes and imperialism than it does family values and friendship. But that's neither here nor there. Sure, the holiday has lost almost all of it's historical luster. But that doesn't mean we still can't enjoy what we've got and give thanks. And what we've had, too. Like Brian Griffin, who passed away, this Sunday, after a 14 year run as the arrogant social conscience of not only Family guy, but his also adoptive family. He was a great dog, and an even better character. One that will probably go down as one of TV's all time best, animated or not. That's how transcendent that rat bastard was. And not all the "Doggie Walnuts" in the world will be able to replace him. I mean, I doubt this "Vinnie" even has a novle that he's been workin' on...

But we move on. And before I do, here's a list of things I'm thankful for. OK, wait. I'm not gonna do that. But I will channel my inner Kevin Garnett as I thank my family, friends, CJ, Moo Moo & Ennis the Menace. They're what make life worth living for this guy. And here's to hoping you have just many creatively named people with which you too can enjoy your holiday...

Gobble gobble, my friends. Happy Thanksgiving. And I'll catch you next time. Oh, and in honor of Brian's passing, I decided to pick all underdogs in today's slate. Which is a lie, because I really just like all of the underdogs to cover. But, hey. It works. And you know it works...

So gobble gobble again, my friends. OR "Happy Turkmas", if you're not into the whole "gobbly" thing. Enjoy the holiday weekend, and I'll catch you next time...
