Tomorrow is a pretty special day here in the United States. Thanksgiving is a national day of, um, thanks, where families and friends gather together to eat, drink, and be merry, all thanks to a meal shared by some pilgrims and Native Americans way back when.

Now, here at, we like combining holidays and themes at every possible turn. So what choice do we have during Top 8 week, the day before Thanksgiving, but to give you the Top 8 Pilgrims?

No choice at all, I say. No choice at all.

Happy Thanksgiving.
