Seeing as it's currently Thanksgiving Thursday in America and there is no Thursday Night Football game due to the Baltimore/Pittsburgh game being postponed until Sunday (as of the time of writing), I've decided to do a US-themed criss cross puzzle today.
Here's what the puzzle looked before I hit start on the timer.

As is usually the case - at this time of year - fast food restaurants, and other establishments, have added new items to their menus in the build up to Christmas. I have already tried Pizza Hut's Christmas Pizza (you can read about it in THIS POST) and have now tried the burgers that are available from Burger King, KFC and McDonald's.
After trying all three items within the past fortnight, I thought I'd compare them in one post. So, starting with the first burger I tried right through the third, we have..

There's a battle going on tonight.
My fantasy football team scored 103.84 points so far this week and I have one more player yet to get me points in the Los Angeles Rams' running back, Malcolm Brown.
Over on the other side of this week's match-up, my opponent has exactly thirteen points more than me and has the Rams' wide receiver - Robert Woods - remaining on his roster for this week.
For what it's worth, the league projects that my player will score 7.42 tonight.
It also believes Woods could get 14.16, so it looks like I'm in for another losing week.
We'll know soon enough. The Rams will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a couple of minutes from when this post has gone live.

The month-long celebration of The Undertaker's career fittingly ended last night during the 34th Annual WWE Survivor Series.
The event closed with, what was billed as, Taker's 'Final Farewell'. It consisted of a plethora of Taker's on and off-screen friends being introduced to the ring. Following that was a video package filled with highlights of the wrestler's career. Once that was over, the cameras returned to the squared circle. In the ring - on his own - was WWF/E owner, and the creator of The Undertaker character, Vince McMahon.
McMahon gave a short speech before The Undertaker made what could very well have been his final ring entrance.
Taker then cut a promo as you would expect from the Deadman and there was a brief moment when he genuflected with his hand out - just like what he would do to draw power out of the urn that his manager, the late Paul Bearer, would be carrying - and a hologram of his friend was beamed into the ring.
I thought it was a nice touch.
However, apart from seeing the old wrestlers congregate before the video package and the Paul Bearer hologram, I thought it was quite a poor send-off.
Sure, it didn't help that it was being done in an arena filled with fans on video screens rather than being live in-person.
It was a case of it being the right and wrong time to do this kind of celebration.
It was right because it was exactly thirty years to the very day that The Undertaker debuted at the Survivor Series of 1990. It was the wrong time because the lack of a real audience made it feel - if you pardon the pun - dead.
