Happy Thanksgiving, Bitches!

I sometimes forget that most of our fans are American. It’s weird to be included in holidays that you don’t generally share. Canadian Thaksgiving was a month ago, and most of the people up here barely celebrate it. But in the US, that holiday is revered. It’s almost as big as Christmas, and it’s also the weekend most of you guys choose to buy shit on. It’s weird to us Canadians, to say the least.

Still, Everyone is making a list of things they are thankful for, and I don’t see why I can’t do it as well. Ryan already wrote his, but now it’s time for mine, so here goes:

I’m thankful that I get to make a living making people happy. I can only do this job because of fans like you; guys who visit 2-3 times a day and practically live here help make my dreams come true. How many people are as lucky as Ryan and I? I sit in my livingroom writing stuff for a blog, and I pay the bills this way. It’s still hard to believe.

I’m thankful for the fact that MMA is the one sport where the athletes are accessible. Think about how boring, cocky, and annoying most professional athletes are. They’re mostly spoiled rich pricks who live in mansions and think themselves gods. But fighters are self made men; their success rides on their performance, and even the cockiest ones can easily be humbled. A hockey player can perform poorly and still get paid the big bucks. A fighters living is contingent not only on his performance, but also on how well liked he is by fans.

Lastly, I’m thankful for the fact that Fightlinker hasn’t been sued out of existence. It seems as though everyone “gets” the fact that we’re jokers, and for the most part, everyone in the industry appreciates what we do. Considering some of the offensive and terrible jokes we make, it’s easy to see how some people might interpret us negatively. We keep growing and rowing, and there seems to be no end in sight. The future is exciting guys, and I hope you’ll all be around to celebrate it with us!

Happy Turkey Day, America!
