It's an American thing, maybe his Armenian/Russian heritage excludes him for celebrating it, just like myself

But his location is San Fran ... I guess I just assumed that he was American. Its funny though, because that would be the definition of a US American ... someone who came from any other country in the world, and now lives in the US.

Drive back to the rainy Pacific NW Sunday or Monday, depending on how deep the lads go in the tournament.

Certainly not a typical Thanksgiving, but looking forward to all of it. Well, all but the driving anyway.

I'll be at Silver Sticks also, though I'll be there to coach. First game is on Wed. during the Sharks game..... Blah at least I can look in through the window to the bar there and see the TV with the game on. The other coaches and I did that during the Sharks vs. Lightning earlier this season.

The other 3 games for my team will be in San Jose.

Kcspence, good luck to your kid!

I do eat turkey... sometimes even on the day of the TG; I just don't celebrate it. Maybe I am just not a thankful person!

bittersweet Thanksgiving for my family this year....it's always at my grandparent's house, but my grandmother isn't physically able to handle the load this year because she has to go through Chemotherapy the day before so it's at my house.

I'm staying home, but maybe going to a relatives house in the afternoon for Thanksgiving. I just found out I may only have a 2 day school week. That's awesome if the next class works out well.

Home sweet home for TG and then comes Black Friday. It sounds so evil, they should call it something else.

Going all the way to ****ing Florida with my girlfriend so we can have Thanksgiving with her family tomorrow. I think there will be 24 people there. I know my girlfriend, her parents, and two of her sisters. So I know 5 of the 24 people that will be there, should be fun. Then we come back Friday and have a post-Thanksgiving party with my family, and I think there will be around 20 people there unless I get some of my buddies to come. Not really looking forward to it that much.

Well, I don't know how to answer this.

I'm traveling home from college on Wednesday, and going for Thanksgiving dinner to my aunt's house 5 doors down from my house on Thursday.

So yeah, kinda?

Pinot Noirs pair well with turkey. They have enough flavor and depth but aren't so robust (like alot of cabs) as to overpower poultry.

Vichon '06 and Valley of the Moon '06 are two good ones. (If you're around a BevMo they are on sale right now)

If you wanna spend more Etude or Fess Park Ashley's Vineyard are two higher end ones that are damn good.

If you want an easy drinking red for before dinner look for a Syrah. I suggest Chalone Vineyards '05 or Shiloh Road '05

Making the loooooong haul to Willow Glen (5 miles) to hang with the crazy Italian side of the family. Nothing like turkey, mashed potatoes, and ravioli!

The name comes from the retail side .... as in when you open the doors, you get steamrolled by angry women looking for deals. Short tempers, fights ... almost sounds like Hockey. Strangely, this year will likely be "black" for retailers because there won't be the crush of humanity throwing down their charge cards.

The term "Black Friday" originated in Philadelphia in reference to the heavy traffic on that day. More recently, merchants and the media have used it instead to refer to the beginning of the period in which retailers are in the black (i.e., turning a profit).

I get the feeling Black Anyday may not come this year.

I stand corrected sir. It must have been urban myth. The definitive source for all information .... Wikipedia. If its in there, everyone knows it's true.

Ugh, let's all stop talking about black Friday. Every year, beginning on black Friday, I tell myself that this is going to be my last retail holiday season (after 7 years, I believe), and it is never the case. It is depressing.
