Ah, Thanksgiving traditions — turkey, gravy, rooting against the Cowboys. It never gets old, right?
In the spirit of the holiday, I’d like to take a minute to give thanks to all the people who continue to make Uni Watch possible, including Ticker assistants Alex Hider, Jamie Rathjen, and Anthony Emerson; our two new Ticker interns, Lloyd Alaban and Yianni Varonis, who’ve been great additions to the team; “Collector’s Corner” columnist and Facebook editor Brinke Guthrie; membership card and Naming Wrongs designer Scott M.X. Turner; weekend contributors Terry Duroncelet, Joe Ringham, Rex Henry, Dennis Bolt, Ethan Dimitroff, Kyle Acker, Jim Vilk, Chance Michaels, Ronnie Bolton, and Graig Kreindler; webmaster John Ekdahl; proofreader Jerry Wolper; and, especially, deputy editor Phil Hecken, the best and most devoted bench coach and pal I could ever hope to have.
Big thanks also to Zac Neubauer, who provided the vintage postcard image that I’ve been featuring on these Thanksgiving posts for a decade now.
If you’re traveling today, travel safe. If you’re working today, thanks for keeping the world spinning while the rest of us take the day off.
As for me, the Tugboat Captain and I will be driving out to Long Island to spend Thanksgiving with my mom and brother. Our family isn’t big, but at least we’ll be together. It’s been a tough year, what with Mom’s stroke over the summer, but we still have a lot to be thankful for.
Everyone have a great holiday. Peace. — Paul
