Fleur-de-Links November 25: Saints @ Cowboys - Let's Talk Turkey!

The big day is finally here.  The Saints bring their Big D to Big D.  I know it's a short week (four days since we played Seattle), but it still feels like Gameday took a while to arrive.  

I hope this morning/afternoon finds you all surrounded by those that you love, with food and drink that you enjoy, and in a sweet state of mind for today's game. 

To echo Satch and a host of others, HAPPY SAINTSGIVING!!  

Jeff Duncan says the Saints will be wearing "home whites" (I hope that means gold pants).  Let's do this.

Make the jump to read all the tweets, news stories, previews, and feature articles, as well as some video.  But after consuming all that, don't forget to leave room for lunch/dinner and dessert!

Speaking of dinner, use the comment section to let us know how you're spending the day (what are you eating, when will you eat, who are you with, where y'at, and how's your day going...).
