Last Thanksgiving I was all reflective and thoughtful because my arm was in a cast and my city was still reeling from Sandy. This year I’m taking the more straightforward route: I’m super-duper-thankful for all the people who keep this here site running, including interns Mike Chamernik and Garrett McGrath (two great new additions to the Uni Watch family), “Collector’s Corner” columnist Brinke Guthrie, weekend contributors Terry Duroncelet and Catherine Ryan, webmaster John Ekdahl, and of course bench coach and weekend editor Phil Hecken, by far the hardest-working and most loyal collaborator anyone could ever hope for. Big thanks to all you — I literally couldn’t do this without you.
By the time most of you read this, I’ll be on my way to pick up my brother in Queens. From there we’ll head to Long Island, where we’ll be celebrating the holiday with our Mom. However you’ll be spending the day, I hope it’s a good one. Be good, travel safe, and don’t hog the gravy boat. Peace. — Paul
