Give sports turkey lists the chopping block


It's still not quite Thanksgiving yet and I'm already tired of one kind of turkey: sports turkeys. These is the annual lists created by unimaginative sports talk hosts needing to fill space. They really don't accomplish much, other than providing more embarrassment for some sports personalities that really didn't need it.
Is it that hard to come up with interesting things to say on the day before Thanksgiving? It wouldn't be so bad if more than one or two outlets were doing it. But it seems every one has a turkey list. The usually more creative Pardon The Interruption did their take Wednesday afternoon. Not to be outdone, David Flemming also has his own turkey list over at ESPN.com. Sports Illustrated has an entire sports turkeys slide show. And over at FOX Sports.com, Mark Kriegel comes up with his list of coaching turkeys. Bah Humbug. (I know, wrong holiday. Ask me if I care.)
Sports Turkey lists are one Thanksgiving tradition that needs to put on the chopping block. Believe it or not, there's a lot of good stuff in sports to be thankful for. So wasting a good five minutes or so of everyone's lives really isn't needed this time of year.
