Bruin Bites: Happy Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the wider Bruin Nation!  While we don't have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to our hapless Athletic Department, ran by a tool busy sipping chianti while our major revenue programs crumble, we do have a lot to be thankful for as Bruins.  First, all of us behind the scenes here at BN are thankful or all of you, the folks who come this little community, provide insightful commentary, bring unique and interesting perspectives, and really make writing for and managing this little corner of the internet a lot of fun (even though Chianti Dan is busy making our lives as Bruin fans miserable).  Heck, we're even thankful for the small army of folks who simply come by to just read what we write.  And of course, we're all thankful for the supportive spouses and family who put up with our frustrations, anger, and disgust (which frequently manifests itself into outbursts at the TV such as "f**k Rick, grow a pair and go for it you son of a b**ch!" or "why the f**k do you keep playing the Wear twins Ben!").

We should also give thanks to the good fortune we all have to call ourselves UCLA Bruins.  It's been a rough decade for us as fans, but when we step back, we had the wonderful pleasure of going to the greatest university in the world.  We're thankful for the opportunity to trek from the Hill down Bruin Walk on sunny Southern California days, thankful for the chance to study in the shadow of the iconic Royce Hall, and thankful for the chance to wade through the Inverted Fountain.  The list really could go on forever.  In short, it's great to be a Bruin, and so while we're suffering as fans, all thanks to Dan Guerrero's incompetent, bamboozled, and failed Reign of Error, we still have a lot to be thankful for.

So with that said, let's turn to a special edition round-up of the bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse on this Turkey Day after the jump.

Alright folks, those are your special edition Turkey Day Bruin Bites.  Have a wonderful long holiday weekend and be safe in your travels.  Fire away with your thoughts, additions, comments in the thread.
