I'm Calling It Boscov's

Mets fans who don't acknowledge this new-fangled business they call "Citi Field" have t-shirt that say "I'm Calling It Shea", in honor of the Mets' old home. Other cities have similar sentiments that wax nostalgic for their former stadiums. As a fan of the 6abc Thanksgiving Day Parade, currently presented by Dunkin Donuts, I need a similar shirt: I'm Calling It Boscov's.

My wife and I are hosting Thanksgiving here in Greensboro this year. While I'm unsure how many times we'll be able to pull this off (we usually go on the road to Maryland and Delaware), it being our daughter's first Thanksgiving certainly helps. The Boscov's Parade, not the Macy's Parade, was always my Thanksgiving parade of choice, due in no small part to the fact that the Alexis I. duPont Tiger Marching Band does it each year. I marched in it myself for three years, and I think I speak for most Tiger Band alumni when I say the memories of that cold stick with you. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, it'll be coming into my home today, despite being well outside the typical viewing area. The Tiger Marching Band and the City of Brotherly Love will indeed make it to my screen, and for that I am thankful. Happy Thanksgiving!
