LMS XV WEEK THIRTEEN - 6403 OUT, 1 DQ'D, 226 IN

Posted: 2008-11-27

And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. And friends they may think it's a movement.
YOU CAN GET ANYTHING YOU WANT, AT ALICE'S RESTAURANT.
------- - A. GUTHRIE

Yes, still caged turkeys, Happy Thanksgiving Day to all from THE VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER.

We all have much to be thankful for (with the exception of, perhaps, 144 Broncos still focused on giving a well deserved pumpkin day pummeling to Mike Shanahan and his miserable Broncos team - bastards). Consider this one thankful thought: ...

... Most of us don't have to worry about the filter breaking down, failing to change our urine and sweat to drinking water. We at least got that much going for us. And most of us have never been invited over to the Palins to help prepare the turkey with the frugal housewife, nor have we been chained up in Boy George's bedroom (I said, "most of us"). And then there's the cheese and the Muscatel. Yes, we all have much to be thankful for.

As the tryptophans meld slowly with the Muscatel cocktails on this reflective day, giving way to healthy napping practices with the Macy's parade in the background on mute and the RCA Victrola continuing to warble out the mellifluous tones of Sebastian Cabot, THE ZOOKEEPER gives pause to consider where this thing of ours has come over the last fifteen years, starting with the initial 57 members of our year 1 start in week six of 1994. (There will be a 15 year anniversary class celebration this New Year's eve in the VAN for those 57 pigskin pioneers. Watch your local paper for details). THE WORLD'S GREATEST FOOTBALL POOL works because of the steady week in/week out efforts of THE SPONSORS who deal directly with the animals who fancy themselves to be Football Genius material, impetuous animals who fancy themselves worthy of being recipients of THE ZOOKEEPER'S personal economic stimulus package. THE ZOOKEEPER is thankful for his hard working SPONSORS who toil amongst these would be geniuses and still toe the Wednesday deadline. To you, much is owed.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day and remember those in your life to whom much is owed. See the list following below for a glimpse of those for whom much is needed, those whom your participation has helped in some small way. Thanks to you animals, this is THE WORLD'S GREATEST FOOTBALL POOL. And why do we do this? As Ashley Dupre said to THE ZOOKEEPER on a recent visit, "Fatboy, give me the money." But, hey, it's fun too. Here are this week's numbers:

6403 OUT, 1 DQ'D, 226 IN. 112 TITANS, 49 COWBOYS, 28 RAVENS, 17 BILLS, 13 J-E-T-S BRETTS BRETTS BRETTS, 3 COLTS, 2 BUCS, 2 DOLPHINS.

PICK OF THE WEEK goes to HANDLEBARS and PERNA for taking the Dolphins on the road. Why not.

That's it for this week. Lay the mortgage bail out money on the Irish this week in Southern Cal. Why not. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody except SPOONS. Peace. Out. See the list that follows to see where LMS efforts have gone to date.
