Some arbitrary number of things I'm thankful for

I'm thankful . . . . .

  • the Cardinals didn't sign Torii Hunter to a 90M dollar deal.
  • Tommy John surgery has an increasingly good prognosis (Get well soon Carp!).
  • the STL Rams won at least one game.
  • this clip never gets old.
  • I still have 6 months before my Master's thesis has to be done.
  • we can debate whether Albert Pujols or Alex Rodriguez is the best baseball player.
  • someone is doing their small part to right the wrongs in the world.
  • the Cubs will get to celebrate their centennial next year.
  • there won't be any middle relievers for the Cardinals to spend money on in the future since Ed Wade has a job again. (Although Kenny Williams is doing his part.)
  • for family.
  • Anthony Reyes is going to put it all together next year (shut up -- I'm being thankful!).
  • Baseball America (Derrick Goold) will release their top Cardinal prospect list in 1 week.
  • we traded for Adam Wainwright.
  • Chris Duncan doesn't have proper social inhibitions.
  • Carlos Beltran took a hammer curveball for a strike.
  • an off year for Albert Pujols is a .329 EqA.
  • Aaron Miles is a Cardinal.
  • for Rotoworld, which keeps me up to date on transactions and provides me with 70% of my daily snark.
  • only 3 people saw me when I tried to jump over my couch and failed.
  • for Family Guy (especially the syrup of ipecac episode -- do not watch if you have a light gag reflex or are old and crotchety).
  • our forefathers picked the bald eagle. Eagles kick ass. Yes, I know that's not a bald eagle but when was the last time you saw a turkey take a deer down.
  • for anyone who was foolish enough to think I'm thankful Aaron Miles is a Cardinal.
  • for the original Nintendo games.
  • for my friend. (Yes, I know that's singular. I'm thankful you didn't point it out in the comments.)
  • for the 2004-2005 Cardinal teams that featured some fantastic offensive lineups.
  • this comment still cracks me up.
  • I have about 25-30 uncles in Nigeria who want me to help them launder millions of dollars for a cut of the money. . . . . provided I forward them a thousand dollars and my social security number.
  • for Charlie the Unicorn and magical leopluridans. (Be prepared for bizarre humor if you watch that clip.)
  • I had a blast making this list.
  • for stuffing.
  • for Jim Edmonds peak circa 2000-2005.
  • for Colby Rasmus.
  • for ninjas and The Onion.
  • no one had already made a diary about what they were thankful for.
  • for Amaury Cazana Marti who is the best 18th round selection ever made by the Cardinals.
  • for baseball-reference.com.
  • for the St. Louis Cardinals.
  • for Viva El Birdos and the entire Cardinal blogosphere.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving with loved ones and good food. Take it easy and sleep off all that tryptophan.
