Sometimes you have to spell it out to understand the awful irony: On a day most of us associate with family, food and football, this year Washington is hosting a Thanksgiving NFL game for the first time.

Football fans in the 1990s were spoiled rotten. They could look forward to seeing Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders and Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith play back to back on Thanksgiving during the years they overlapped (1990-98).

Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate, no matter our problems. Let others dismiss Thanksgiving as an occasion where warmed-over family resentments and simmering political antagonisms are passed around the holiday tables as we stuff ourselves with turkey, apple pie and football. But for those of us who look forward to the holiday, we know that […]

Commentary, Thanksgiving -

Today, I’ll content myself with celebrating Thanksgiving with my family. I’ll listen to the old stories and laugh at the old jokes. I’ll think of the family circle, unbroken, though so many are gone. Still, I’ll stand upon their shoulders, just the same. As the holiday comes to a close, I’ll smile as my mother-in-law […]

It took three episodes, but this show has finally taken off, and VH1 is rewarding its stars for it. Martha and Snoop’s Pot Luck Dinner is being renewed for a second season. But it didn’t always appear it was going to work. The first episode was clunky. Seth Rogan looked out of place, Ice Cube […]

Last week, to most, Shirley Caesar was The First Lady of Gospel. The pastor/singer was a legend in the game, the type who sings at the White House. This week, she’s everyone’s grandmother at Thanksgiving. If we’re being honest, we don’t feel bad about this meme at all. The song is just too good. Don’t […]
