“Always, even in a limo, wear your seat belt.”

Amidst all the base/basket/football chatter this time of year, you might not notice that your polite friends from the North have been a little quieter than usual. On the other hand, if you’re a hockey fan, the silence is deafening. There’s been an NHL lockout, see, and the way things are going we can’t help but wonder if there’ll even be a season at all.
While hockey fans haven’t rioted (yet), we do miss our favourite-with-a-u sport. A few weeks ago, Ohio fans expressed their love and longing for hockey by holding a virtual game; announcers, national anthem and all. Here in sunny Los Angeles, you might think nobody would even notice hockey was missing — but NO, stop assuming! Our very own Kings were the champions last season, and we can’t wait to see them take the ice again. Like in Ohio — and likely all across the continent, if they won’t bring the hockey to us, we’re going to bring the hockey ourselves!

Once a year Americans gather around a seasonal feast to pause, reflect and give thanks. Appreciation for good fortune is expressed through sharing homes, food, or even by articulating personal successes or it could be worses to friends and family. But whales? Well, they cuddle.
California — December, 2005: A 50-ton humpback whale was found caught in nylon ropes in Farallon Islands, 18 miles outside of San Francisco. A braaaave team decided to execute a daring rescue operation: The only way to save the tangled whale was to dive into the water and cut the ropes, a delicate mission because one swoop of the whale’s fin was enough to knock out and even kill a dude. But this whale was a boss, and acted calm and patient.
James Moskito, one of the rescue divers explained, “When I was cutting the line going through the mouth, its eye was there winking at me, watching me. It was an epic moment of my life.”
According to Moskito and his fellow rescuers, when the whale realized it was free it began swimming around in circles. Moskito said it swam to each diver, nuzzled him, and then nuzzled the next. Because thankful whales cuddle.
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all. Nuzzle some fools.
