Gobble gobble, track and cross country fans!
We're going to take the long holiday weekend off here at the Down the Backstretch, just like we did at this time last year.
We're also going to re-run our Thanksgiving readers' poll: What are your favorite Thanksgiving foods?
(Find the poll on our sidebar.)
Defending champion (and #1-ranked) Stuffing is the food to beat again 2008. Last year's runner-up, Turkey, ranked #2, looks strong again this year and #4 Mashed Potatoes and #5 Pumpkin Pie can't be counted out.
We think underrated (and un-ranked) Gravy is primed for a break-out performance in 2008, but #6 Cranberries, we're afraid, will do well to finish in the top half of the field this year.
#3-ranked Apple Pie, of course, did not qualify for the Thanksgiving Poll, failing to advance from the perennially-strong Pie Sectional.
So vote in our poll ... enjoy your Thanksgiving ... and join us again on Monday!
