On this Thanksgiving Day I thought I would list some of the things that I am thankful for. So here is my shortlist of things that I appreciate:
I am thankful for my degree from the University of Miami and the fun and exciting time I spent on campus back in the glory days of the 1980s.
I am thankful for Al Golden, who in spite of unforeseen and difficult circumstances, has shown his true grit and leadership as he toughed out a challenging first two years as head coach at Miami.
I am thankful for living in a Country where the election process still works.
I am thankful for UM baseball coach Jim Morris and the two National Championships he has won at The U (1999, 2001).
I am thankful for my loving wife, a supportive family and caring friends.
I am thankful for all of the Miami Hurricane fans that show up at Sun life Stadium on a regular basis and yell their throats sore each and every game.
I am thankful for the great memories that UM athletics has provided me and for all of those still to come.
I am thankful for every day and every sunrise and sunset I get to see.
I am thankful for coaches Jim Larranaga and Katie Meier and the UM men's and women's basketball teams they produce.
I am thankful for role models like Mike James who show that student-athletes can still be both. I wish all Hurricanes could be like Mike.
I am thankful to have a decent job when so many good people are jobless.
I am thankful for players like Duke Johnson who thrill the crowd every time they touch the ball. There is no doubt that Duke is the Truth.
I am thankful for players like Anthony Chickillo,Tyriq McCord, Denzel Perryman, Eddie Johnson, Tracy Howard and Deon Bush who will make Miami's defense feared once again.
Now I want to know: What are U thankful for?
