The Salt: Happy Thanksgiving

Hello, everyone!

It’s not an eventful Thanksgiving in RSL world — as of this writing, which incidentally took place before Thanksgiving, though not that long before — but it’s sort of a nice moment of calm before the storm.

It’s been a hell of a year, hasn’t it? We don’t need to relitigate any of that here, and that’s hardly the point of Thanksgiving.

But I think through all of this, it’s been illustrative to me: The thing we can be most thankful for, to me, is the good people who have helped — and will continue helping — ensure our club has good people inside it. Certainly, there have been some bad seeds. Not everyone who remains is a perfect angel. But there are good people there, and they’re why I have hope for the future.

There are many other things to be thankful for. I think we’ve come together as a fan base through adversity, and while there’s always space to disagree, there’s a certain unity that was sometimes lacking that is now present.

Why don’t you tell me what you’re thankful for this year?

And, while you’re at it, why don’t we make a shared Thanksgiving playlist? I’ll embed it below. It’s collaborative, so you should be able to add to it easily enough. Here’s a link to get there. And if you’d like to add some words in the comments about the songs you’ve added, that’d be great. Or if they speak largely for themselves, that’s great, too.

Anyway, have a wonderful holiday, everyone. (And prep for next week — Dell Loy Hansen set a self-imposed Dec. 6 date by which at least some major deals will be done.)
