"9 A.M. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade begins.Tim Burton’s B-Boy balloon bears a macabre resemblance to Albert Haynesworth as it sinks to the ground and refuses to budge."

Please tell me Matt Schaub is nowhere near New York today.

Also, Yujie, it's great that you're providing medical support and Ken Griffey shoes to the doctors treating Egyptian protesters, but you forgot to say "first".

According to the Ravens' website, they're facing a resurgent Alex Smith...

Which I guess means at one time he was surgent, but I'll be damned if I know when.

The Alex Smith jersey joke is fantastic.

Perhaps good enough to make up for perpetuating the tryptophan myth.

Meanwhile the Cowboys prediction was entirely wrongheaded, as it took Romo ten minutes to throw two interceptions, not six.
