What We’re Thankful For 2013: From The Marbles

With Thanksgiving upon us, each Yahoo Sports blog is taking stock of what they’re thankful for while also providing menu suggestions and a sport-specific viewing guide for when you hit your couch. Share what you’re thankful for on Twitter with the #YSBThanks hashtag or in the comments below. Have a safe and happy holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We hope you have a great holiday with family and friends and eat as much as you can without getting sick. And don’t go crazy for the Black Friday sales. Go get a good deal, but don’t hurt anyone in the process, OK?

And by the way, we’re thankful that From the Marbles is a stop on your Internet trips. We appreciate it. Here’s what we’re thankful for this Thanksgiving season.

1. Danica and Ricky: They’re not exactly trendsetters — we hope that they’ve had some sit-down dinners with Elton Sawyer and Patty Moise to discuss the life of racing and relationships — but we’re thankful for you, Danica and Ricky. We’re thankful for all of the jokes that your relationship allows us to make, and we’re thankful that you’re truly happy with each other. It doesn’t feel forced and you can tell when you talk about each other that you really care.

Plus, we’re also thankful for the way you’ve handled dating each other while driving against each other for the Rookie of the Year Award. You could have gone all NASCAR-Kardashian on us and shot for relationship attention at every opportunity. Instead, you didn’t hide from the camera, but you didn’t go find them either.
