Happy Thanksgiving

Greetings from Ithaca, N.Y., where the Tugboat Captain and I are spending the Thanksgiving weekend at the home of her brother Peter. That’s the Captain and Peter shown above, a few minutes after we arrived yesterday. Gee, you’d never guess that they’re siblings, eh?

We have a lot of cooking and even more eating to do today, and you probably do as well, so I’ll keep this short.

First, in case you missed it yesterday, I have a new ESPN piece that tells the lost story behind the origins of the Vikings’ uniforms. Check it out here.

Second, I’d like to take a minute to give thanks to all the people who continue to make Uni Watch possible, including Ticker assistant Alex Hider; our three new Ticker interns, Anthony Emerson, Kris Gross, and Jamie Rathjen, who’ve all been excellent additions to the Uni Watch team; “Collector’s Corner” columnist Brinke Guthrie; NBA uni tracker Collin Wright; membership card and Naming Wrongs designer Scott M.X. Turner; all of this year’s Uni Watch Artist’s Series T-shirt designers, including Todd Radom, Larry Torrez, Brian Malloy, Rob Ullman, and Sean Kane; weekend contributors Kyle Acker, Dennis Bolt, Ethan Dimitroff, Terry Duroncelet, Rex Henry, Joe Ringham, and Jim Vilk; webmaster John Ekdahl; and, especially, deputy editor Phil Hecken, the most devoted bench coach and curling skip a guy could ever hope to have.

Everyone have a great holiday. Peace. — Paul

    Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. (‭Psalms‬ ‭100‬:‭4‬ HCSB)

    Thank you to all of Uni Watch, both employees and commenters. Praise God for all He has given us.

    Dark meat is for suckers.

    To swing back on topic … the Lions are wearing their retros. Always liked them.

    Welcome to Ithaca! You’ve got at least one faithful uni-watcher here. Hope to see you around maybe.

      Ha! Thanks, James. I love Ithaca! I went to college at SUNY-Binghamton, and my girlfriend for most of my college years was from Ithaca, so I spent lots of time there. Great town!!
