Someone call Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton as the geniuses over at M.I.T. have come together to create the trickiest tongue twister of all-time. I for one, have no problem saying this, but if the folks at M.I.T. say it's tough, I'll pat myself on the back.
Can you say this?

Just picked up this bad boy from Target for $4.50. I'm not sure what surprised me more, the price or the fact that I somehow didn't already own it.
But that fact remains, this is one of the best Christmas movies of all-time. I'll come up with a complete list, but just know that Gremlins is on it. It would also find itself on the list of best '80s movies and best creature movies.
$4.50? You kidding me. And it's "Special Edition." Whatever that means.

9am-Noon: MACY'S DAY PARADE
Look for my favorites: Woody the Woodpecker and Spider-man. Also Cam Neely and Mike Ritcher will be on a float promoting the next day's Bruins-Rangers game.
12-2pm: THE NATIONAL DOG SHOW
You can watch 30 mins uninterrupted of this bad boy before switching back and forth with what's next. But who doesn't love a dog show? Give me the Working Class every time.
12:30pm: Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions
Big NFC North match up here, but an even bigger fantasy football game. Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush, Matt Stafford, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boytkin, and Matt Flynn?
4:30pm: Oakland Raiders @ Dallas Cowboys
Not the best game, but it's still football. Maybe eat during some of this one.
8:30pm: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens
Two disappointing teams go at it with playoff chances really on the line. The winner is guaranteed anything but the loser is probably done.
9:30: Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular
I'm no Lady Gaga fan, not even close. But as you know, I'm in on anything Muppets. Pair them with Stalin and I'm watching. Hopefully it's not too much Gaga and friends.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM THE SPORTS BRIEF!
