Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and appreciating how well we have it, not to mention the fattest day of the year. In honor of this this day, we’ll run down a list of things that we are thankful for this year, as told through GIFs.
We’re thankful for:
Wearing tweaked couture and framed by sci-fi film sets, West moved from scene to scene, from song to song, rarely standing in any one spot for longer than a few minutes. Megalomaniacs drive us to revulsion when we think of them lounging around and collecting our money. But West works so hard at dragging himself through all the stations he’s set up for himself that he feels like the opposite of a fraud, or a jackass, or whatever else people call him. It would be perverse to not want him, and his drive, in the world.
Any American over-enthusiasm for my first major Premier League match had to be immediately hidden by the slightly disgruntled grimace one adopts when jammed ear to ear into an Underground train. I had taken a studious approach to dressing — wear all black and then piece together your pitch-side outfit from the team shop when you get to the grounds. I had been joking beforehand that I would go full kit, but figured I’d buy a hat and maybe a shirt. Past experience has proven there is nothing colder than soccer stadiums during the UK in winter, so the extra layers wouldn’t be a burden.
One hour later and many pounds lighter (in money, not weight), I had a hat, three pairs of socks, shorts, a retro jacket and a Cup-font away jersey with my name custom printed on the back. I’ve been trying not to let my head perform the currency conversion ever since, but, hey, I crossed an ocean to get here. Sometimes you gotta let the pence fall where they may.
This lad in front of me clearly enjoys Jack Links beef jerky.
