I have to admit, I love this time of the year. It isn't just about the family get togethers, seeing old friends, or the weather changes. I love the idea of giving thanks and just being thankful for what I have in life.
One of the biggest things that I give thanks to each year is just the ability to cover this great game called soccer.
We all know what the sport means to us. For some it is an outlet or distraction. For others it is a hobby. And for most likely reading this site it is a true passion. I know for myself it has always been the latter of those things. I grew up playing the game for many years before injuries pulled me out of the game and into the press box. In some ways I am thankful for that too.
I know I am also thankful for the staff here at Big D Soccer. All of them have been great this year and have been a massive help to me as Managing Editor. I also want to thank all of you readers as well. Without you and your discussion, BDS wouldn't be around. So again, thank you.
As we all gather with family and friends this week, what are you most thankful for? It doesn't have to be soccer related but if you feel like sharing a good soccer story or two, please be our guest.
I hope you take a moment or two and share some stories with others below as to why and what your thankful for this year.
