Some Thanksgiving thoughts

Happy Thanksgiving to regular readers of this blog and those who might just be passing through.

A few quick thoughts to pass along this morning.

The Patriots are practicing later this morning, and coach Bill Belichick pushed his regular Wednesday news conference to today (1 p.m. ET), so we'll have some updates over the course of the day.

A few blog entries are already scheduled this morning, including tight end Rob Gronkowski being part of a "spike the puck" American Hockey League promotion in February, the weekly "penalty watch" with offensive lineman Logan Mankins atop the ranks, and this week's P.A.T. which features an interview with Patriots linebacker Tracy White, the former Eagle.

Our regular Thursday Patriots chat will return next week, as will the Patriots podcast with Tedy Bruschi. Keep an eye out for "Bruschi's Breakdown", which previews the Patriots-Eagles game.

To all the Massachusetts high school football players, best of luck in your games today.

Hope everyone has a great day.
