We at BanterCamp, Inc. want to wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving! Hopefully, you’ll have a chance to enjoy time with your loved ones, great food, and football. Or at least some combination of those things.
At church this past Sunday, my pastor said, “It is not happy people who are grateful. It is grateful people who are happy.”
Being grateful or thankful for something makes us appreciate the fact that we are blessed. Feeling this way gives us a chance to look at everything we’ve been given and to just be happy to have those things. We all have something to be grateful for. For some, it’s simply the breath they took this morning when they woke up. For others, it’s being able to work their dream job. Regardless of where you are in life, I promise you can be grateful about something.
For me personally, I’ve been blessed abundantly. I couldn’t even begin to count the things I’ve been given. I’m sure if you looked hard enough, you would realize you have more than you know. I don’t mean to get “preachy,” but I just want to remind you to take a few moments over the holiday weekend to really be thankful for what you have.
I do want to mention a few things that I’m thankful for.
I’m extremely thankful for you, our readers. Without you guys and gals, BanterCamp would basically be a public diary for me to share my thoughts. Trust me, no one wants to read that. I’m grateful that I have a platform to share my thoughts and opinions about the sports world. It’s something I’m very passionate about, and I hope that shows in my writing. Thank you so much for reading and sharing our posts! I truly appreciate you all.
I’m very thankful for all of our contributors. You guys do great work! I’m happy that we have writers who enjoy being able to speak their mind and have an audience. Not everyone has that chance.
Lastly, I’m thankful for my business partner. Without him, BanterCamp doesn’t exist. I was given this chance nearly six months ago, and it’s been a thrill ever since. We’ve had some ups and downs along the way, but it’s been awesome. I honestly didn’t think I would enjoy writing as much as I have since I joined the team. It’s fantastic to be able to provide information and opinions to the masses. Thanks, Prez!
I’m also thankful for football, and Thanksgiving is full of NFL action. All three matchups are division games, so there’s a lot to watch for. The first game features the Chicago Bears traveling to face the Detroit Lions. The second game has the Dallas Cowboys hosting the Washington Redskins. The night game has Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints hosting Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons.
The Saints-Falcons game is the on that excites me the most. Not only does it have a lot of fantasy football value, it’s a battle between two division rivals. When these two teams meet up, expect a lot of fireworks. This game could easily become a shootout, and we love those!
Again, take some time this Thanksgiving to reflect on what you have and truly be grateful for it.
Happy Thanksgiving and God bless you all!
