For the first time in five years, I will be enjoying Thanksgiving Day at home with the familia. After chowing down some turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, my sisters will probably force me to watch scary movies with them.
I have worked on just about every major holiday whether it’s working on the sports desk, covering holiday colege basketball tournaments or helping with Rose Bowl coverage. I would never usually be home and that’s one thing my mom did not like about my job.
But I’m thankful to have my dream job. I work in a city I love (thankfully I didn’t leave for Seattle or Indianapolis) and I’m still close to the city I love: Los Angeles. I’m the envy of some advertising executives in the office who’d rather talk football on the phone than selling ads. And I don’t say that to gloat but it does put things in perspective.
Thank you for your patience. Thank you for warm welcome. You guys have made me addicted to the blog and for that I thank you.
