Nice shot of the port-o-johns!
Here's another difference from the last couple of years: we couldn't find a dive bar open early enough to host our post-race beers. H expanded the to-call list to about thirty bars and found none of them open before noon this year. Maggie McGee's, which had been open at 10 a.m. for the last two years, wasn't even unlocking its doors until 3 p.m. - far too late for our purposes! So we shrugged off our disappointment and went straight home after the race, and popped open a bottle of cheap champagne the moment we set foot inside. That seemed to work just fine.
Clear shot to the finish
The rest of the afternoon was spent watching football, cooking (roast chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green beans, salad, cranberry-orange relish and rolls), eating, drinking good Utah beers (Cutthroat (with their gorgeous new logo design), Full Suspension and the house-brewed Deep Pow Pale) and playing games (Quiddler and Rummikub). We were amazingly too full for pie (craziness - I am never too full for pie) and I had to go to bed well before 10 p.m., tired, full and very happy with the day. I hope all the rest of you enjoyed your Thanksgivings as much as we did ours!
