Hope everyone out there has a very Happy Thanksgiving.
To commemorate the occasion, we give you Adam Sandler's "Thanksgiving Song". Because in a season full of holiday songs, this is the only Thanksgiving song we can find. (Warning: minor NSFW language)
Most importantly, be safe this weekend. Especially if you're going out to one of those early morning Black Friday special sales. We don't want anyone getting hurt out there, or hurting someone else. This Saturday Night Live "Black Friday" parody commercial from last season should give some perspective:

As the NFL Network studio analysts recapped game highlights on Sunday night, they featured Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount's 52-yard touchdown run against the Green Bay Packers (minus the Super Mario music).
Then, Deion Sanders threw the show off the rails by throwing in a weed reference.
In a Maui Invitational showdown Monday night between Kansas and Georgetown, Kansas center Jeff Withey was called for his fifth foul with 8:10 left in the second half. The call was extremely dubious, however, because Georgetown forward Nate Lubick pushed Withey, while Withey did nothing.
Monday night's NHL game in Pittsburgh between the hometown Penguins and New York Islanders was noteworthy for Sidney Crosby's memorable return to the ice. However, the game was briefly halted when a piece of plexiglass popped out of place behind the Islanders net.
It's pretty common to see a fight break out during a hockey game, but usually it's between players on the ice.
Last Monday at the Bell Center in Montreal, a fight broke out between fans in the stands while the Canadiens were hosting the Boston Bruins.
Nov 22, 2011
Last week, Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Jared Odrick broke out the Pee-Wee Herman "Tequila" dance after sacking Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman.
Teammate Jason Taylor, who competed in "Dancing With the Stars" a few seasons back, tried to convince Odrick this week not to do it anymore, but to no avail.
This Sunday, Odrick sacked Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the third quarter, and broke out the Pee-Wee dance again...to commentator Marv Albert's disgust.
During the first period of Sunday night's hockey game in Vancouver, Ottawa Senators center Jesse Winchester was standing in front of the door to the Vancouver Canucks bench.

As if getting pounded by LSU 52-3 wasn't painful enough for the Rebels, Ole Miss defensive lineman Terrell Brown, who is listed as 6-foot-10, 377 pounds, had a folding chair break underneath him as he sat on it on the sideline...and it was caught by television cameras.
By now, you've probably seen the NFL highlight of Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount's 52-yard touchdown against the Green Bay Packers last Sunday.
However, you may want to watch it again, only this time with Blount's run synchronized with Super Mario Brothers invincibility music.
Video: Maurice Jones-Drew Taunts Cleveland Fans With LeBron James' "Powder Toss" After Scoring Touchdown

After Baylor's 45-38 upset win over Oklahoma, Baylor offensive lineman Troy Baker attempted to shower his teammate, quarterback Robert Griffin III, with Gatorade as he was surrounded by fans who stormed the field and media members waiting to interview him.
Baker missed the quarterback with the Gatorade, but managed to douse Baylor Sports Information Director Heath Nielsen and ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews.
As Baylor took a knee on the last play of last night's game to seal the 45-38 win over #4 Oklahoma, the home Baylor fans stormed the field. One female Baylor fan managed to stand out from the crowd, however, as she stormed onto the field while on crutches.
In a Russian soccer match Friday night, a player accidentally kicked the referee with the ball. The punishment may have been a little excessive, however, as the referee gave the player a red card.
To slow down Oregon's offense in the second quarter of last night's game, USC linebacker Dion Bailey used an unconventional way of keeping Oregon running back LaMichael James from getting up for the next play.

Victoria's Secret has just removed some Michigan State T-shirts from its website because of a misprint.

They say what happens in a team locker room should stay private. Apparently Dallas Cowboys safety Abram Elam doesn't agree. Elam used his Twitter account to accused two of his teammates, quarterback Tony Romo and cornerback Frank Walker, of having
"the junkiest 2 lockers in the NFL".
To back his claim, Elam posted a photo of Walker's and Elam's messy lockers.

Texas A&M basketball coach Billy Kennedy brought his 7-year-old daughter Anna Cate to Madison Square garden for the Aggies' game against St. John's.

Nashville Predators center Craig Smith had the puck on his stick just a fewfeet away from an empty net in the third period of last night's hockey game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. All Smith had to do was tap the puck towards the net and the goal was his.

What's better than scoring a goal? How about hitting two girls in the face with the ball before scoring, and then having a video of the goal posted on the Internet for the world to see?
In a Heineken Cup rugby match, Ronan O'Gara scored a drop goal in injury time to give Irish club Munster a 23-21 victory over Northampton.

It was only last month when Minnesota Vikings defensive lineman Brian Robison received a $20,000 fine for kicking Green Bay Packers lineman TJ Lang in the groin. Well, Robison's temper may have gotten the best of him again Monday night, but this time he was caught pushing an NFL referee.

It's not every day that someone kicks a 108-yard punt. In fact, in NFL or NCAA football, it's impossible to kick one.
Not in the CFL, however, with their longer field. It's happened at least twice, with the most recent coming a couple of weeks ago as Saskatchewan's Chris Milo booted a 108-yard punt against Hamilton. This tied the record for longest punt in CFL history.

During yesterday's SEC college football matchup between Tennessee and Arkansas, Razorbacks receiver Joe Adams was credited with a 60-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter. However, there is no way to convey the amazing skills that Joe Adams displayed on his way to the end zone by just looking at the boxscore. The play has to be seen to be believed.
Nov 12, 2011
Vancouver Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome was ejected from last night's game against the Anaheim Ducks after elbowing Ducks winger Devante Smith-Pelly in the head during the second period.
Nov 11, 2011

During a charity basketball game in Memphis on Tuesday night, Miami Heat star LeBron James dribbled the length of the court, passed the ball to himself off the glass, jumped to catch the ball mid-air, and finished with a slam dunk.
A woman in one of the front rows put her hand up hoping for a high-five from LeBron after his dunk, but he was too busy taking in the moment and left her hanging. However, after a second or two, LeBron partially extended his arm towards the woman in a lackadaisical manner. This resulted in an extremely awkward handshake as the woman grabbed LeBron's partially extended hand and shook it on her own.
In a recent KHL hockey game in Russia, fans of hometown Dinamo Minsk began throwing cigarette lighters and other foreign objects on the ice and at the bench of visiting Vityaz (Moscow) near the end of the game.

Over the past few days, more and more people are starting to turn on Joe Paterno and calling for him to resign as Penn State head football coach due to the scandal involving his former assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky. However,
last night in State College, Pennsylvania, a few hundred students rallied outside of Paterno's house to support the coach as he returned home after practice.
Paterno's official press conference was cancelled by the school earlier in the day, so JoePa used this opportunity to speak directly to the students.
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was forced out of the pocket by the Cleveland Browns defense on a red zone play in the third quarter of last Sunday's game.

In light of Kim Kardashian's pending divorce from New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries, Saturday Night Live couldn't resist creating a parody commercial for an upcoming E! Network special entitled "Kim's Fairytale Divorce".
After the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night, Ravens coach John Harbaugh and Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome were in the mood to celebrate. Harbaugh and Newsome found each other in the tunnel on the way to the locker room.
Unfortunately, they weren't quite on the same page on how to celebrate. Newsome went in for a hug while Harbaugh jumped up into Newsome's arms. As a result, Newsome lost his balance and fell on top of Harbaugh, while Harbaugh had to conduct the post-game press conference with a bloody chin.
During the NBC Sunday Night player introductions last week, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was too cool to stick to the script and recite his name and the name of the college that he graduated from, Arizona State University.

New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster missed a chance to intercept a Tom Brady pass in the end zone in the third quarter yesterday as the ball appeared to go right through his hands.
As his momentum carried him towards the back of the end zone, Webster decided to release some frustration by swinging his arm at the padding around the goalpost. Unfortunately, Webster didn't notice the security guard standing against the padding behind the goalpost. As a result, Webster ended up accidentally punching the security guard right in the face.
Fortunately, it was not a hard punch, as the security guard did not appear to be phased at all. Webster realized his mistake and immediately apologized, shaking the security guard's hand.
Standing behind the end zone at Met Life Stadium during Giants games has proven to be very dangerous this year. Earlier this season, Giants linebacker Michael Boley celebrated a touchdown by throwing the football in the face of a cameraman's assistant.

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller tried to leap over two Buffalo Bills defenders to gain a few extra yards after making a reception in the second quarter of today's game.

Video: Mark Sanchez Lines Up as Wide Receiver, Gets Called For Holding Penalty After Drayton Florence Makes Him Flinch
When New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez lined up at wide receiver in the fourth quarter of today's game against the Buffalo Bills, he was probably concerned about getting injured.

After Santonio Holmes scored a third quarter touchdown for the New York Jets in today's game against the Buffalo Bills, Holmes headed towards the sideline to celebrate with the team.

In the biggest college football matchup of the year, fans of #2 Alabama were left disappointed and heartbroken after their 9-6 overtime loss to #1 LSU last night.

Georgia tight end Aron White found himself in an awkward position as he scored a touchdown just before the end of the first half in front of the home crowd in Athens today.

Nothing unusual about that, except in this case, an unsuspecting fan on the other side of the glass was walking to his front row seat with a cup full of beer. Stempniak's check on Elder pushed the glass into the fan, who lost his balance...and some of his beer as it spilled from the cup.

On Halloween night, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had a nightmare scenario become reality on Monday Night Football in front of a national audience.
Tied 20-20 against the Kansas City Chiefs, with 1:04 left, and positioned on the Chiefs 15-yard line with the Chiefs having no timeouts left, all Rivers had to do was take a knee to set up a game-winning field goal for the Chargers. Then, the unexplainable happened.
