New, 5 comments

Today, we stop and give thanks.

NCAA Basketball: Winthrop at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Today is the day many of us will gather around the table, eat a large amount of food, and remember what we are thankful for.

For many of us, it also includes watching watching football all day and taking naps while blaming the tryptophan in the turkey for making us so tired.

However you celebrate, today is Thanksgiving and we here at A Sea of Blue wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving!
