Holler If You Hear Me

I'm down on Maryland's Eastern Shore going to see some of my fam. Dunno if I ever told you guys, but this is where my people are from. I'm gonna make it to Africa one day, but I've always felt that this was my personal Motherland. I'd imagine a lot of black folks feel like that about the Deep South.

At any rate, this was supposed to be a thread for those of us watching the game. It's still that. Just some thoughts, first. Happy Thanksgiving, guys.
