Thank You

Sometimes we forget to offer thanks. We are all guilty of it, we take advantage of the ones we love. We don't tell them how much we care, or how much we appreciate what they do for us. I'm as guilty of that as anyone, besides, it's tough to shoe horn in a thank yous when I'm busy calling everyone under the sun a douchebag.

With that said, it's been a busy couple of days in the world of sports, so I thought I'd take a few moments and offer up some thanks. It's the least I can do.

First and foremost I'd like to thank the rest of the NFC East for losing games they should have won this past weekend and keeping the Eagles squarely in the race for the division championship.

I'd like to thank the Arizona Cardinals for breaking Tony Romo's pinky and Matt McBriar's foot.

I'd like to thank TO for starting to melt down weeks ago. A few weeks from now, after Brad Johnson and his chicken wing arm bounce balls at his feet, he should explode in a truly spectacular fashion.

I'd like to thank Pac Man Jones for getting suspended indefinitely.

I'd like thank Eli Manning for throwing three picks and then injuring his chest last night. The David Carr era can't get here fast enough.

I'd like to thank Shane Victorino for being freaking awesome, for eating spam, and for having an awesome nickname.

I'd like to thank B.J. Upton for hitting a bomb that still hasn't landed.

I'd like to thank the Syracuse football team for continuing to play hard under trying circumstances.

I'd like to thank Bill Stewart for screwing up the West Virginia Mountaineers and giving hope to the rest of the conference.

And lastly, I'd like to thank Greg Robinson for continuing to dazzle us with his verbal prowess.
