WCRS Thanksgiving Filler - "The Twilight of Thanksgiving" (William D. Kelley)


1:55 minutes (1.76 MB)

The Twilight of Thanksgiving (William D. Kelley)

The day has lengthened into eve,
And over all the meadows
The Twilight's silent shuttles weave
Their sombre web of shadows,
With northern lights the cloudless skies
Are faintly phosphorescent,
And just above you wooded rise
The new moon shows her crescent

Before the evening lams are lit,
While day and night commingle,
The sire and matron come and sit
Beside the cozy ingle;
And softly speak of the delight
Within their bosoms swelling,
Because beneath their roof to-night
Their dear ones all are dwelling

And when around the cheerful blaze
The young folks take their places,
What blissful dreams of other days
Light up their aged faces!
The past returns with all its joys,
And they again are living
The years in which, as girls and boys,
Their children kept Thanksgiving

The stalwart son recalls the time
When, urged to the endeavor,
He tried the well-greased pole to climb,
And failed of fame forever.
The daughter tells of her emprise
When, as a new beginner,
She helped her mother make the pies
For the Thanksgiving dinner.

And thus with laugh and jest and song,
And render recollections,
Love speeds the happy hours along,
And fosters fond affections;
While Fance, listening to the mirth,
And dreaming pleasant fictions,
Imagines through the winds on earth
That heaven breathes benedictions.

Selection
(John Greenleaf Whittier)
Heap high the farmer's wintry hoard!
Heap high the golden corn!
No richer gift has Autumn poured
From out her lavish horn.

Let other lands exulting glean
The apple from the pine,
The orange from its glossy green,
The cluster from the vine.

But let the good old corn adorn,
The hills our fathers trod;
Still let us for His golden gorn,
Send up our thanks to God.

# 401 - What Are YOU Doing To Beat Ohio State This Saturday?


59:46 minutes (54.72 MB)

Tonight on the Show, it's back, THE Game is back, between the # 2 Ohio B*ckeyes (10-1, 8-0) and the # 5 Michigan Wolverines (10-1, 7-1) in Ann Arbor. BOTH the FOX Big Noon Kickoff and ESPN's College GameDay will be LIVE from Ann Arbor on Saturday. Could an upset take place? Maybe, but don't hold your breath. Ohio is an eight point favorite, coming off a 56-7 destruction of then # 7 Little Brother, ending the K-9 for Heisman Campaign. BOTH of the teams they lost to this season got blown out on Saturday (Oregon, who beat Ohio in Columbus on September 11, lost 38-7 to Utah on November 20).

With last year being the first time since 1917 that the Game did NOT take place, this marks the first time since 1903 that The Game is being held in Ann Arbor back-to-back meetings. A B*ckeye win would tie Michigan's 1901-09 streak for the most consecutive wins in Series history.

The winner of this game will win the Big Ten East, and represent the East in the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis on December 4th.

Storylines for The Game:
- Harbaugh: "We're Playing for ALL the Marbles."
- Harbaugh: "The Playoffs have begun."
- McNamara: "This is why you come to Michigan."
- Can Ojabo & Hutchinson stop Stroud?
- Will Stroud put the pedal to the medal like he did with Michigan State, and last place Indiana, Maryland, & Rutgers?
- Can the Secondary stop the BIG THREE (Olave, Wilson, and Smith-Njigba)?
- Will Corum be able to play?
- Can Haskins shred the Silver Bullets (hey, it worked for Oregon, and helped Minnesota and Nebraska stay in the game against Ohio)?
- Can Michigan "Biakabutuka" the B*ckeyes?
- Will Day put up 100, like he promised in 2020?
- If Michigan gets blown out, does Harbaugh get fired?

Plus, it's Thanksgiving Week!

Tonight is a night to celebrate. For the first time in ten years, the Michigan Wolverines beat their hated rivals, That Ohio School, 42-27 on November 27, 2011, behind FIVE Hassan Haskins touchdowns, and 3,654 days worth of steam. Then one week later, Michigan won their first Big Ten Championship in 17 years with a 42-3 demolition of Iowa. And for the first time ever, the Wolverines are in the College Football Playoff, being the ONLY school to make the NCAA Final Four in Men's Basketball, Baseball, Football, and Ice Hockey (the four major sports) in the last four years.

College Football Playoff:
# 1 Alabama (12-1) vs. # 4 Cincinnati (13-0) - Cotton Bowl; 3:30PM on 12/31 in Arlington, TX

The Weekend Warrior skims through events around town, including the return of a Columbus Holiday Staple - The Nutcracker (Ballet Met's The Nutcracker, to be exact).

And Hour # 2 is a bunch of celebratory and upbeat music slapped together, to troll B*ckeye fans, who will lose to Utah in the Rose Bowl on January 1st.
