Happy Thanksgiving!

thanksgiving-turkey.jpgLight blogging will be the norm over the next several days as I enjoy the holiday with my family and, on Friday, travel to College Station for the annual rivalry game between the Longhorns and the Aggies.
The 10-0 Horns are an uncharacteristic 27.5 favorite in that annual grudge match and are 9-1 against the spread during this magical season that appears to be heading to a Rose Bowl matchup with USC for the BCS National Championship. The 5-5 Aggies are only 3-7 against the spread this season, which reflects that this particular Aggie team has not met the expectations of the betting public, much less its rabid faithful. So, this one could definitely be a blowout, but the sociological implications of Texas v. Texas A&M are always entertaining to experience regardless of the score.
As you enjoy the holiday with friends and family, take a moment to read this heartwarming story by Clear Thinkers favorite Mickey Herskowitz, who has been the best Houston sportswriter over the past generation. Mickey is one of the wonderful people that makes Houston such a special place.
Have a joyous and restful holiday, and thanks for reading Houston’s Clear Thinkers.
