Well it’s the 27th of November, perhaps the most overlooked holiday in America: Thanksgiving.  Yes, while the holiday is iconic, many are already anticipating Christmas; buying Christmas presents, wearing Christmas sweaters, singing Christmas carols, etc.  Some are even skipping out on Thanksgiving to wait in ridiculously long lines for even more ridiculous black Friday sales (cue cheesy commercial announcer: “Sooo cheap, we’re practically giving them away!”).

Actually, as I write this article, I can hear my nine year-old sister humming “Jingle Bells” a floor below me. Well, I personally love Thanksgiving, or as I also call it, “T-Givs”.  Okay, I don’t call it that.  I was just trying to be cool.  But I do love Thanksgiving.  And, equally as important, I love the English Premier League.  What better way to celebrate my favorite American and British traditions than combining them into one super article?  The answer is, no, there is no better way.  There is so much in the Premier League that I am thankful for, and there are things that I am not-so-thankful for.

Do you guys feel a slide show coming on? Well I sure do.
