Super Thanksgiving Sunday Links 28 Nov 2010

While you were eating turkey and stuffing I was compiling a list of links you could unbuckle your belt to. In addition this week we've decided to include some charity links for the upcoming holiday season. Nothing like coming to TCB and getting hassled about charity like you do at the grocery store.

Very cool charity started by the guys at Penny Arcade. Click on a location from the map and you get sent to an amazon page where you can send a toy, game, movie, etc.. to kids in hospitals. I plan on sending something baseball related.
