And... We're Back

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. I enjoyed having four days off, and a weekend of food, football and fun that included a trip to Atlantic City. I capped off the weekend last night by taking in the WWE's Survivor Series at the Wachovia Center, my first live wrestling in several years. I had fun, but I think wrestling has passed me by at this point.

A few other notes from the weekend:

- Apparently Becca and I aren't the only Steve and Becca around.

- The latest Vikings embarrassment: they almost lost to the Cardinals before preventing a last-second touchdown. Had they lost, Childress would totally have been entitled to a "just crown their ass"-type speech. As for the Eagles, Childress is lucky he got a head coaching job last offseason, because had he stuck around this year, he'd be radioactive.

- As for the Turkey of the Year column, I agree with all the nominees, but it's hard to agree with the winner: University of Minnesota womens' basketball coach Pam Borton. I'm sure she's deserving, but I don't see how a performance that only affected the 10 people who watch Gophers womens' hoops is more turkey-worthy than, say, Fred Smoot or Koren Robinson.

Turkey of the year should definitely go to Andy Reid.

U of Minn women's basketball was drawing up to 10,000 fans per game before Borton killed it by driving away all the players. The turkey was well deserved. More importantly, glad to hear that pro wrestling has finally passed you by.
