KankaNation-Related Things I'm Thankful For

Editor's Note: See below for the ND-Stanford preview
  • Everyone who takes the time to read what I have to say. Everyone who takes the time to tell me what they have to say. Everyone who takes the time to point out when I'm grossly wrong.

  • Old friends. New friends. Friends I've met from this blog. Friends who go to The Backer with me. Friends who get me home from The Backer. Friends who tolerate me no matter what.

  • People who LOOOOOVE me.

  • Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Eli Manning, and Jeff Samardzija, for their help in driving traffic to this site.

  • The fact that it's (somewhat) socially acceptable for a grown man to play softball and video games, and ramble on about sports he's never played.

  • Authority figures who realize that character and winning are equally important.

  • My family, the roof over my head, the food on my table, my job, the country I'm in, the troops who have come home, the troops that will be coming home, and the troops that won't be coming home.

  • The soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch... the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.
    Oh, whoops. Got a little sidetracked there. Sorry.

  • Four years at Our Lady's University. I've only begun to uncover all that it means to my life.
