What I’m Thankful For

And today, a Thanksgiving post on what else: Everything I’m thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving, you guys!

This list will vary wildly on things I’m very thankful for, and things I’m meh-thankful for. You get to figure out which are which!

BEGIN THE (horribly formatted) SLIDSHOW:

I'm very thankful for my wife. Here, we awkwardly feed each other on our wedding day, Aug. 6, 2011.

I’m very thankful for these knuckleheads. True story, these are pictures taken of them during Twins games this year. Yikes.


I’m thankful for all the LOLGammos, and I must say, there’s plenty of #winninf in this photo. (also nominated by Mike Axisa)

I’m thankful for Tony La Russa, or more accurately, that he retired. Props to him, as he retired as the three-time, three-time, THREE-TIME World Heavyweight Champion! (also nominated by Jeff Zimmerman)

I’m also thankful for Carson Cistulli.

I’m thankful for baseball labor peace, because bloodshed is bad. (nominated by Eno Sarris)

Obviously.

I am thankful for Bert Blyleven.

I am thankful for Eno, and for all his fantasy/sandwich goodness. And that mane. (nominated by Zach Sanders)

I am thankful for beer and chicken. “Keeping the Red Sox out of the postseason since, well, never.”

It’s a Thanksgiving celebraish, you guys. Be thankful!

I’m thankful for baseball video games.

And finally,

I’m thankful for FANGRAPHS! Thank you for a great year, you guys!
