The last thing between me and the annual PAO Thanksgiving potluck is a dose of Jibber.
It is also keeping me from the annual pilgrimage back home to Michigan for Thanksgiving at Grandma’s — the greatest day of the year.
During the season of thanks, I really have to express my gratitude to the Washington Redskins for blowing a 15-point lead with three minutes to go against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Call me bitter, but their collapse made the Cowboys’ debacle on Sunday a little easier to take. BTW, Jason Garrett needs to go. The team has quit on him.
I’m also thankful for Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield demonstrating what “white privilege” looks like.
If someone like Cam Newton or Jameis Winston or, heaven forbid, a former QB named Kaepernick did what Baker did on the sidelines of a game, they’d literally be toast and raked over every single coal at the media’s disposal.
Baker doesn’t even get suspended because he fake cried during an apology.
I’m thankful for my government job and being able to write this column almost every week, which is why I’ll refrain from analyzing the ongoing Twitter battle between our president and LaVar Ball.
I’m thankful for the big ole zit on the side of my face — right inside the crease along the right nostril. This little ball of puss would send my teenage daughter into a frenzy, but since old folks don’t get acne, I’m using my painful pimple as a reminder that the #middleagedgangsta still has some gas in the tank.
And, of course, I continue to be thankful to you and the Fort Meade military community for everything you do.
Enjoy the turkey, football and, hopefully, a Michigan win on Saturday. #GoBlue
