Cold Beer & College Football

Today’s thankfulness shout-out goes to the individual who expressed gratitude for “Cold Beer, College Football”, and the specific team for which he roots.  Seriously?  

Call me cynical (because I am).  Call me snarky (because that’s true, too).  But somehow I really don’t think that’s the sort of thing the for which the Pilgrims sat down and expressed gratitude on the first Thanksgiving.  Life?  Yes.  Health?  Yes.  Food?  Friends?  Family?  Yes, yes, and yes.  A place to live and freedom from religious persecution?  I’d bet on it.  But cold beer and college football?  Not so much.

Now, you may argue that that’s only because the Pilgrims didn’t have cold beer and college football, and if they had, they would most certainly have been grateful.  You might well be correct.  To me, however, this is just one of many examples of the complete stretches folks make when it’s time to come up with something for their 30 days of Thanksgiving.  (Yes, I left out the hashtag.  I hate those darn things.)  Of course, it is also a lack of smarts on the part of the poster.  He could have gotten a good three days out that one thankfulness post.  I’m just sayin’.
