All right: As I noted below, we've pretty much decided on our Thanksgiving menu. I think I'm going to use Robbie's suggestions to enhance the turkey itself, but I'm curious - do you think it's better to roast it in a bag, like Stacey and others have said? Why is that not dangerous (doesn't it melt)? And when basting, do you baste the entire turkey, which would entail turning it over; or just what you can get to?
Next: Lebron James and the Cavs are ridiculous. 8-game winning streak, 6-0 at home by an average margin of 21 points. Their losses were in San Antonio and in Memphis - no slouches. Their defense, thanks to coach Mike Brown and the additions of Larry Hughes and Donyell Marshall, is excellent; their offense, unstoppable. Lebron's overall numbers aren't even as impressive as last year - he's "only" averaging 28.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.4 assists - but he's shooting a ridiculous 53% from the field and 36% from beyond the arc.
I think they have a legitimate shot at contending for the East title - Miami and Detroit are the only teams in their way, with Indiana close. They've already taken down Washington, Philadelphia, and Boston - and they play Indiana on Thanksgiving eve. As a side note, I feel bad for Bucks and Bulls fans (you know who you are) - your teams could easily go a little over .500 and come in last place in the division. At least the rest of the East is atrocious, so you'd still make the playoffs...
Go Cavs! Wine and Gold... wine and gold.
