This has been one hell of a year. I am thankful that for my father still being around. A little over a year ago my father went in for cancer and had his bladder removed. He still had it in both of his ureter’s but started homeopathic treatment and has had negative test results ever since.

I am thankful that my sister has come back from Iraq again another year in one piece without any problems. After 6 years of her trying to adopt I have also been blessed with a little nephew who’s birth date is only one day off of what my own child’s should have been.

I am thankful for not losing my wife and son when it easily could have went the other way. I am thankful that we are all healthy and happy now and he is actually in the top 1% for his height. He is a very healthy boy.

I am thankful my grandmother made it to 100 and we were all there to celebrate it with her a week and a half ago. She was foggy at first then we were blessed with a sudden clarity that would last the night while four generations of our family spent time with her.

I am thankful to an awesome family most of who stayed to see my son and nephew dedicated in church the next morning. Our family took up two entire rows of the church. Pretty special.

I am very thankful for my own health which has allowed me to compete and bring home medals in a year that was very turbulent.

I am also very thankful to my family and friends who are more awesome and loving than anyone could ever ask to have. I truly feel god had blessed us this year.

Awesome!!!

It is awesome being a dad, isn’t it? If I’d known what I was missing out on, I’d have probably done it sooner. Then I might’ve had more than one (that I know of ;)).

I am thankful for my wife and my children. My life would be so empty without them.

I am thankful for having been born to a family that has always loved me and cared for me whether I was at my best or at my worst.

I am thankful that my wife talked me into having another kid a few years ago. Seeing my 4 y/o daughter every morning is always a ray of sunshine, regardless of what the day might bring.

I am thankful for the good life we have, and for our home. That is not something to be taken for granted. I was making a donation at a local food bank last week. I had never seen their client waiting area so crowded. Times are difficult for many people.

I am thankful to live in such a beautiful world. Even with all it's troubles we are blessed to be a part of it.

I love being a dad. Nothing better than spending time with my boy. I think it's easy to get all wrapped up in what's going on with us sometimes. Almost missed out on one of the best things in life. When I went to grandmothers 100th I dropped in on a friend I had not seen in a long time. He adopted 6 kids, 5 of them special needs who were labeled unadoptable and were going to be institutionalized until they were 18. Best run family I have ever seen. Oldest one is entering the brain bowl. Had an 8 year old tearing apart and rebuilding electronic engines. More love in that house than you could ever imagine. I have never seen him so happy. Not for everyone for sure but the difference he is making in those kids life is amazing.

Jayhawk Fans: It’s Time to Give Thanks. And Lots of It.
Posted by
KU Sports: Mic Johnson

As I woke this morning, I was overcome with feelings of anticipation as I thought about the week ahead and the Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving is a time for reflection, introspection and taking time out to give thanks for the many people and blessings in our lives. It’s a time to gather with family and friends, to enjoy a long holiday weekend, to savor every bite of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pie.

This Thanksgiving, however, is going to be an extra special one for Jayhawk fans all across the country.
This Thanksgiving, Jayhawk hearts will be overflowing with more love and joy than ever. This Thanksgiving every Jayhawk fan is going to have an extra bounce in their step. This Thanksgiving every Jayhawk fan is going to be talking about the game in Arrowhead Stadium on November 24th against the Misery Tiggers. This Thanksgiving will be one that Jayhawk fans will talk about for years to come.

With that in mind, here is the Jayhawk version of “Things I am thankful for.”:

11-0
#2 BCS ranking and #2 ranking in the AP and Coach’s poll
*Mark Mangino and his entire coaching staff
*A legitimate shot at the National Championship in both football and basketball
*The sustained ability to take it “one game at a time”. Brandon McAnderson said it best: "This week our focus was Iowa State, and last week our focus was Oklahoma State. It sounds like a cliché, and it sounds like something that everybody says, but it's just the way we are."
*Todd Reesing. His 30 touchdown passes have him tied for second-place on KU's all-time TD pass list. And he’s only a sophomore. Oh, and he has yet to lose as a starting college quarterback.
*The least penalized team in college football
*Winning on the road
*The entire wide receiver corps with their ability to create separation, catch the ball, get yards after the catch, and sustain their downfield blocks.
*Turnover margin. KU has gone 18 quarters without a turnover and leads the nation plus-21 in turnovers.
*Jake Sharp and 1,000 yard rusher Brandon McAnderson
*KU students camping out for football tickets
*The fact that KU is, as ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit termed it, “THE story of the year in college football”
*76 points on Homecoming against Nebraska
*Ed Warriner. Someone should create an Offensive Coordinator of the Year Award with his image and likeness. They can call it The Warriner Award.
*KU football games on national television every week
*Lew Perkins
*The fact that, though few will admit it, KU and MU fans both respect what the other has accomplished this year.
*KU football games in HD
*KU cheerleaders and the Rock Chalk Dancers
*Marcus Hereford
*The infamous YouTube video of Mark Mangino ripping into Raimond Pendleton
*The infamous YouTube video of Misery Tigger QB Chase Daniel picking his nose and then enjoying
an “appetizer”
*Memorial Stadium and a single season attendance record, averaging 46,498 fans over 7 games
*That most KU fans that own a “MUCK FIZZOU” shirt have finally decided to quit wearing them and use them for what they were originally intended: Cleaning the toilet.
*Expansion of the football facilities
*Derek Fine
*That KU fans won’t rush the field at Arrowhead Stadium when we beat MU.
*Kerry Meier, EASILY college football’s M.U.P. (Most Unselfish Player)
*Beating K-State 3 out of the last 4
*The most underrated offensive line in college football
*Mike Riviera
*Easiest bet to win: The Jayhawks are 10-0 against the Las Vegas point spread this season.
*Scott Webb: KU’s new leading single season scoring leader with 110 points.
*Bill Young
*Former KU football coach Don Fambrough’s absolute disgust for Missouri.
*Punter Kyle Tucker has rarely been needed this season.
*Aqib Talib
*Winning with CLASS and knowing that MU never will.
*The 13 seniors on the Jayhawk football team that have been instrumental in laying a foundation for the future success of the program. Sometimes there aren’t enough words…
*The #2 ranked scoring defense in the country
*James McClinton
*My friend’s parents who are selling me their two extra tickets to the KU-Missouri game and not ripping me off like every ticket broker in the country.
*A chance to shut up the predominantly ignorant MU fan base for another year.
*A chance to hear the Rock Chalk Chant throughout the state of Kansas…AND Missouri…on Nov. 24th.
*Joe Mortensen
*Keeping the Jayhawk train rolling after football season. The Jayhawk basketball team is in the Top 5, Brandon Rush is back, and we’ve got a team that has a legitimate shot at the Final Four and National Championship. Oh, and we just signed another Top 10 recruiting class.

But the one thing that I am MOST THANKFUL for?

KU-Misery: November 24th: Sold out Arrowhead Stadium. 7 p.m. on ABC. 100% of ABC affiliates will air the game. Yes, that means the ENTIRE COUNTRY will be watching. ESPN College Gameday in Kansas City. The most anticipated college game in Kansas City history. The biggest game in the long history of the rivalry. The biggest game in college football to this point in the season. Coach of the Year on the line. Big 12 North title on the line (KU is already guaranteed a share of the Big 12 North title. But we don’t like to share. Especially not with Misery.) Entry into the Big 12 Championship Game on the line. National Championship aspirations.

Yes, Jayhawk fans, we have so much to be thankful for this season. Perhaps more than ever. Eat some turkey, then eat a little more, and then get your GAME FACES on.

Oh, who am I kidding? My game face is already on.

GO JAYHAWKS! POUND THE MISERY TIGGERS!

Keep Rockin’ and Chalkin’ and Happy Thanksgiving to all,

What am I thankful for? I hadn't thought about it until now.


1. Like someone above me, I am thankful for my wife. I don't deserve her.

2. I am thankful for all 4 of my kids. With them all so close in age, it makes the house stressful, but when they are not trying to break something, rip something, beat each other up, they are worth every minute. The stressful times make the rest of the time that much better.

3. I am thankful for my parents. They deal with a lot coming from my brother & sister. I've always tried to treat them - and everyone else - as I want to be treated. Through everything, they've been there for me. They've picked me up when I was down and they've pulled me back down to earth.

4. I am thankful for my life in general. I have more than any one man should have. Loving family, great kids, my own house, and enough money to get the things we need. There are a lot of people that are a lot less fortunate than we are.

5. I am thankful for my job. I have the flexibility I need to be able to spend time with my family.

6. I am thankful for the Planet. For without it, I may go crazy one day and sue for illegal use of copyright.

OTH, I know of someone who had their in-laws visiting them for the holidays. In the process of going out to thier host's garage to get some pop, the mother-in-law fell and broke not only her hip, but arm. She is currently in surgery. The mother-in-law wont be able to travel for 6 weeks. The daughter-in-law doesn't really know what she did to have karma kick her in the azz.

I offered to bring her multiple bottles of wine if needed.

I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

I'm thankful for my 4-year-old daughter. She brings me so much joy each and every day. Her joyfulness and energy simply melt away my troubles.

I'm thankful for my son who's due in a couple of months. I'm really looking forward to his arrival.

I'm thankful for God. I'm not worthy of His mercy and forgiveness, but He offers it anyway.

I'm thankful for my recent spiritual renewal.

I'm thankful for great friends.

I'm thankful for a wonderful family, both mine and my wife's, no matter how quirky they all may be in their own ways.

I'm thankful for my country.

Truly, I thank God for what he has given me: my wife, a woman who I haven't deserved for 20 years and running; my three children who are the lights of my life; my parents (especially my stepfather who succeeded in doing his best in the shadow of our own father's death); my in-laws who are arriving tonight; and any other abilities, talents, motivations and the life the Lord Jesus has given me to try to live them out for His glory.

For all of that, I offer thanks to the Lord God Almighty.






BTW, God: Thanks for the 5 and freaking 5.

I am thankful for all three of my children and the love we all share.

I am thankful for the beautiful daughter-in law and the grandson that will soon arrive.

I am thankful that all my children are happy and well adjusted.

I am thankful that the creator saw fit to allow me a good life with a sharp intellect so that I could succeed in life and the drive to take advantage of it.

I am thankful for the entertainment value this BB provides, it brings me laughs and smiles many times when I am down.

Finally I am thankful for the medical care that makes a nearly normal life possible with my renal disease.

This has been one hell of a year. I am thankful that for my father still being around. A little over a year ago my father went in for cancer and had his bladder removed. He still had it in both of his ureter’s but started homeopathic treatment and has had negative test results ever since.

I am thankful that my sister has come back from Iraq again another year in one piece without any problems. After 6 years of her trying to adopt I have also been blessed with a little nephew who’s birth date is only one day off of what my own child’s should have been.

I am thankful for not losing my wife and son when it easily could have went the other way. I am thankful that we are all healthy and happy now and he is actually in the top 1% for his height. He is a very healthy boy.

I am thankful my grandmother made it to 100 and we were all there to celebrate it with her a week and a half ago. She was foggy at first then we were blessed with a sudden clarity that would last the night while four generations of our family spent time with her.

I am thankful to an awesome family most of who stayed to see my son and nephew dedicated in church the next morning. Our family took up two entire rows of the church. Pretty special.

I am very thankful for my own health which has allowed me to compete and bring home medals in a year that was very turbulent.

I am also very thankful to my family and friends who are more awesome and loving than anyone could ever ask to have. I truly feel god had blessed us this year.
