Originally written November 21, 2012 on Extra Pine Tar:
Mmmm, Thanksgiving is almost here. Food, family, friends, football… This year, we even get lucky with the Patriots on Thanksgiving night, which gives you ample time to eat, pass out, wake up, drink a bottle of Jack Daniels, yell at your family for not understanding you, call you wife fat, eat a turkey sandwich and try to fight your  uncle before the game starts. It is Thanksgiving after all. While you’ll undoubtedly be wearing a sweater or a button down and also enough cologne to throw your family off the weed scent that follows you like the dirt that follow Pig Pen in Peanuts,  when Tom Brady finishes up torching the Jets he’ll most likely be wearing glasses with no lenses and a trench coat that makes him look like a lesbian doing the walk of shame. At least Bob Kraft is pulling off the People Magazine “LOOK, THEY’RE JUST LIKE US!” style by rocking a hoodie. Unfortunately, for BK, you can see his two-tone button down sticking out over his sweatshirt, just barely. You can take a girl out of the country… What about Jonathan Kraft…does anyone else get the sneaking suspicion that he’s wearing a thong under those Dungarees? And then there’s Jerod Mayo, dressed exactly as I picture him dressing at all times off the field. He looks relaxed – not giving a **** that he’s overrated and can’t cover the pass or make a tackle at the line of scrimmage – just kicking it with the old white guys who pay his salary and his metrosexual quarterback who he’s sometimes afraid to shower in front of. Ah, Thanksgiving, the greatest holiday of them all.
