It’s that time of year again — a time for families and friends to come together and think about what they are thankful for. For fans in Boston, look no further than the Bruins, Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics when taking stock of such wonderful things. Each team has given something to be grateful for this year, including timely trades, new contracts and even a few departures that will bring good news down the road. So, in the spirit of the season, we have taken the liberty of putting together a comprehensive list of the most important things all Boston sports fans should keep in mind before diving into that 22-pound turkey, some mashed potatoes and a heaping helping of stuffing. You will not find the NHL lockout, Eli Manning or anyone associated with the Montreal Canadiens on this list, but you will find a few things to hold onto as we wrap up the 2012 sports calender. Click here to see the Top 10 things Boston sports fans should be thankful for>>
