35.5? ‘It’s not enough.’ Georgia will feast on Georgia Tech – The Athletic

Before getting to this week’s big game between Georgia and Georgia Tech, whose coach, Geoff Collins, is 9-24 in three seasons and 3-12 in the past 15 against Power 5 schools — two of the three wins coming over Duke — and therefore has morphed into a walking lampoon going into Thanksgiving week, which reminds me of that episode of, “WKRP in Cincinnati,” when the radio station manager ran a turkey drop promotion because he thought it would be a really great idea, and, oh dear …

Some thought Collins could fly, too. But I digress.

Anyway, where was I? Yes, before we get into this semblance of a game, it’s Thanksgiving!

This is my favorite holiday of the year, in part because it involves food, and also because it involves food, and even if it sometimes involves family drama that’s OK because if you do it right, there is turkey and maybe ham (forgive me, Rabbi) and maybe 17 side dishes, with possibly 12 starches, and the other five are covered with gravy, and there are football games, and there’s a couch so you can pass out in a food coma while thinking of Black Friday sales that free you to get up at 4 a.m. and drive to Target to buy Play-Doh for a nickel and a TV at 40 percent off, which is great until you fall for it and see the same TV go on sale two weeks later for 50 percent off in a FIRST EVER EVEN BLACKER FRIDAY SALE, and your dog eats the Play-Doh because he thought it was leftover turkey, but at least the poop in the backyard looks … different.

Anyway, where was I? Yes, Thanksgiving!

Many consider this the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving because it was in 1621 when the Pilgrims, who coincidentally also were coming off a win over Duke, celebrated a bountiful harvest with a Native American tribe called the Wampanoags.
