What are you thankful for as a UM fan?

I just wanted to send you all best wishes on Thanksgiving today. I've had a rough week since I got back from Puerto Rico, so this will be short. I figured I'd leave you a forum and raise the question: What are you thankful for today as a Hurricanes fan?

Is it the basketball team?
Is it the top-ranked recruiting class the football team appears to have?
Is it Randy Shannon?

I'd love to hear what you think.

The Basketball Team .... GO CANES!!!

I'm thankful for having a coach like RS, realizing that the best talent in the country is in our backyard. Thankful for having the kids in the tri-county area buy into the rebuilding of a dynasty. Keep up the good work coach and a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

I am thankful for all the exciting times a small private school hasprovidedover the years.I haved watched and rooted for the CANES since 1954,and no matter what happens I will always love MIAMI.

I'm thankful for Xavier Lee fumbling and giving the game away for us this year.

I'm thankful for Canespace.com!!!!! (Of course, Eye on the U too) LOL

I am thankful also for having a coach like Randy Shannon, having a top recuit class, beating FSU, and most of all being a hurricane.

I am thankful Kyle Wright is a senior.

I am thankful that I'm a third-generation Cane and for all the great memories, especially in the Orange Bowl... A lot of good stuff wrapped in orange and green. A bad season (or few) here and there is not enough to shake the foundation. Go Canes.

I am thankful RS is the Head Coach cause as long as he is the HC, UM will never be good!

I am thankful for da U and for timmy tebow

i'm thankful i got to see the canes one more time in the OB before it gets knocked down.

i'm thankful the canes even have the possibility of being bowl eligible with bad players.

i'm thankful people like Suge only show up when the canes are bad because let's be honest, this isn't going to last.

i'm thankful i get to continue to live in a warm climate because weather below 50 degrees sucks!

i'm thankful for alcohol because without it, this would've been an especially tough time to be a cane!

I'm thankful for FIVE national championships!

I'm thankful for beating FSU at the Doak.

I'm thankful for people like Manny Navarro.

I'm thankful for being a Canes fan for the last 30 years.

I am thankful...

I'M THANKFUL FOR GREEN!

OH YEAH, I'M ALSO THANKFUL FOR SUGE WHITE'S MOMMA'S TONGUE! BEST IN ANY TRAILER PARK IN ORLANDO!

Thankful for
-The basketball team
-The recruiting class
-The Win At the Doak
-Super Coop and McNeal
-The good work by this blog.

For this season I'm thankful for the few players that have given their all.
As a fan I'm thankful for all the great memories and players that this program has produced.
For being able to see the CANES play at the OB for one last time. The energy and electricity before the game started was priceless.
I'm also thankful for all the haters that are enjoying what's happened for the last two seasons, soon it will be time for PAYBACK.
But I'm mostly thankful for being alive and being able to watch the CANES play weather they win or loose.

I'm thankful to be a Cane, an alumni, and active supporter of the University. I'm thankful for all the students, faculty, players, coaches, and alumni who contribute towards the betterment of the University.

I'M THANKFUL FOR GREEN!

Posted by: Cane-ster Nip | November 23, 2007 at 05:49 AM thank you, Cane-ster Nip. GOOD TASTE

i no speaky mush englist pero mi thank for the coash for Eddie Rio for play basket and win for everibody people.

Im thankful for the list of commits the U has right now, b/c we need each and everyone of those kids. Another thing I'm thankful for is the fact that the commitment list is incomplete. Damn I cant wait to see who else signs that LOI.

Manny I don't know what nationality you are but you must have some Cuban friends so I hope you like this:

Subject: CUBAN HOLIDAYS

El miercoles pasado, dia antes de Thanksgiving, saliendo del Sedanos, me dice la cajera cubana al entregarme el recibo de mi compra 'adios señora y 'japi sanguibin' y me dejo pensando como se dicen y escriben "en cubano" los nombres de los holidays que se celebran aqui.

Y se me ocurrio hacer una pequeña lista de acuerdo a los meses del año:

Primero tenemos 'balentain', dia de los enamorados y de las florerias y de salir a bailar con los novios y los maridos que ese dia se portan mejor que nunca y reparan por toda la mierda que hicieron el resto del año.

Despues viene 'ister', domingo de resurreccion, de ir a misa por unica vez en el año y fin de hacer penitencia como ofrecerle a Dios no comer quimbombo en toda la cuaresma o no decir mas de un coño al dia.

El proximo es el 'forzofllulai', dia de la independencia, de ir a la playa y de llevar a los niños a ver los fuegos artificiales y de darles una leccion de american 'jistori'.

Luego viene 'jalouin', dia en que los niños se ponen disfraces de papel o de plastico que solo duran las dos o tres horas del 'tricotri' antes de ripiarse en mil pedazos, y van de casa en casa recogiendo caramelos que no pueden comer porque pudieran estar envenenados o haber cuchillas de afeitar puestas por sociopatas perversos dentro de los Hershey bars .

La fiesta siguiente es 'sanguibin' a donde viene toda la familia, hasta Cachita y Joaquin, los tios de 'niullersi' que nadie soporta porque nada mas que hablan de toda la plata que ganaron este ultimo año en su negocio de venduta de ropa fina, a comerse el 'terqui' estilo cubano con arroz, frijoles y yuca y un pudin de pan o flan de postre.

Despues 'crismas', dia de asar lechon en caja china en el patio desde el amanecer hasta que este listo a las 8 de la noche 'pa'questé blandito que se desbarate', tarea de los hombres de la familia mientras que las mujeres preparan los acompañantes, que seran los mismos que los del "terqui", incluyendo el postre, y los niños corretean por toda la casa acabando con la paciencia de las mamas, abuelas y tias que los mandan pa' fuera en donde se dedican a tirarle piedras a la caja china pa' tumbarla con lechon y todo y asi joderle el dia a los papas, tios y abuelos.

Y por ultimo 'niulliar', fiesta a todo meter de fin de año en donde las mujeres se encasquetan sus mas finos ajuares comprados en Berta y Pepe, " ño que Barato", o en la tienda de ropa fina y exquisitisima de Cheo y Mamita en la calle ocho, y sacan a pasear toda la "gangarrea" que guardan en la gaveta de arriba de la comoda y que compraron en el pulguero de Flagler, y comen mas lechon y mas arroz con frijoles y mas yuca y mas flan y engordan 10 libras mas.

Cuando los cubanos de aqui les cuentan a sus familiares en Cuba sobre estas fiestas, lo escribiran asi? sera que el pueblo cubano tiene un spelling particular y propio para los holidays gringos?

Hablaran de los "forzofllulai faieruerks"? Del "crismas chopin"? Del "sanguibin terqui"? Como le diran a nuestros reyes magos, los "zreewaismen"? Y a nuestro dia del trabajo, "leibordei"?.....

No en balde le ponen de nombre a los hijos LIuesmeil, Uanuei, Yusimi, Mileidy, Aisiyu, Belsauz.....

Que idioma tan pintoresco hemos inventado en este exilio de Miami, la verdad es que no hay nada como el sabor cubano, hasta el ingles ya sabe a arroz con frijoles y la yuca y tiene ritmo de guaganco.

Bueno, los dejo con el pensamiento cubano del dia : Ai lov Mayami, ai lov Jayalia, ai lov la saguesera an ai lov to spic inglis, espechali uiz mai kuban frends and neibos

*************************************************************************************************************************

O que faz com o Espanol? Nao gusto muito desse idioma. Seriously, I am thankful for our great past, I am thankful for our great future, I am thankful for growing popularity and success in basketball, I am thankful that UM beat A&M on my birthday, and I am thankful Kirby Freeman, had the best performance of his entire life on that last drive in Tallahassee. Oh yeah, I'm thankful the Sentinel moved O to the Dolphins, because now we have Manny.

As a UM fan, what am I thankful for?
1. The (nightmare) season is almost over.
2. We're not on probation (not yet anyway).
3. No one was arrested this year (except Marve).
4. No one was seriously injured in an off campus incident this year (except Marve).
5. We beat FSU this year. (Thank you Kirby and Xavier).
6. Heavy Dee is leaving (none too soon).
7. Coach Shannon & Coach Haith. (I like these guys. But then again I liked Coker, so what do I know?)

GO CANES!
