Happy Thanksgiving from Down the Backstretch!

Gobble, gobble Minnesota running and track fans!

It’s once again time for the storied athletic tradition that is the Down the Backstretch Thanksgiving poll – our annual contest to determine DtB readers’ preferred holiday food.

We each have our favorite portion on the plate, and over the years Stuffing (2007, 2008) and Mashed Potatoes (2009) have won the coveted Thanksgiving Championship, while Turkey and Pumpkin Pie have historically made strong showings.

(Cranberries and gravy, on the other hand … )

There’s no clear favorite this year ... some sage observers are picking stuffing, other think Turkey will be a real animal, there are even a handful that think Gravy might pour it on this year. In the end, of course, it will be you, the DtB readers, who will decide!

So, while DtB takes a little holiday down time, please take a moment from your own holiday festivities to vote in our poll, found on the right sidebar just below the ads. Voting in the poll is open until the end of the day Sunday, November 28.

We’ll be back on Monday with the results, and, of course, the latest on the sport from Minnesota.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Grrr ...

Sorry for the "Potatoes" misspelling in the poll ... I'm unable to change it now without deleting the votes so far.

That just makes you Vice Presidential material.
