Gratitude

Honestly, I don’t know why I don’t post this every Thanksgiving.  It’s a classic.

As a middle-aged man, I’m thankful for all the usual things – a loving family, great friends, small-batch Bourbon, a lack of need for a product which includes a warning to call your doctor for an erection lasting more than four hours, etc. – but on a more topical note, I’d like to express my appreciation to Mark Richt and his program for two of the most exciting games I’ve ever seen in person.  It’s been a topsy-turvy season, one that’s not going to wind up where we hoped, but, damn, those games against South Carolina and LSU were tremendous.  Thanks for that, guys.

And thanks to y’all, too.  I don’t know if you noticed, but the hits tally for GTP crossed seventeen million yesterday.  Never in my wildest dreams, and all that.  I’ll modestly take some credit for the success of the site, but the blog wouldn’t be all that it is without what I think is the best community in the Dawgosphere.  You guys are great.  Now go stuff yourselves.

See if this works.

Okay, I keed, I keed.

Try to get the venting out of your systems today.  I don’t want to see the comments section devolve into a permanent state of toxicity.  We’re better than that, really.
