Welcome back to Casual Friday Sixers Links.
• Liberty Ballers hopes all of our wonderful readers had a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving filled with love, laughter, and tolerable conversations about current events.
• E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES! We are a basketball blog, but Bleeding Green Nation manager Brandon Gowton is a friend and contributor to the blog (also the former Casual Friday writer!). Read up on yesterday's huge Eagles win at Dallas by checking out BGN's coverage. Brandon would do it for you.
• Missing you, hunger feeling.
• Liberty Ballers
effete snob writer Michael Baumann has a new book coming out! It is called Philadelphia Phenoms: The Most Amazing Athletes to Play in the City of Brotherly Love and can be purchased now on Amazon.com and local bookstores. If you are on the fence about buying it or would just like a tease, Baumann was kind of enough to publish an excerpt exclusively on LB. Check it out!
• Many people have asked many blog leaders over the years if they could change their SB Nation username because there was no manual way to do it yourself. Now you can manually change your username one time without having to ask any higher-up to do it for you. Click on this Blog Huddle link for specific instructions on how to change your username.
• Want to share some Sixers thoughts with the LB community? Write a FanPost. Do a good job on it and we may even promote it to the front page. I'll even link to it in the weekly links post too. You'll be famous!
• For new post updates and draft commentary from our writers, follow LB on Twitter - @Liberty_Ballers, and be the first to know the next time LB gets a Twitter shoutout from Molly Sullivan. Also, like us on Facebook here!
