Black Friday has become something of an unofficial national holiday. But it's changing. Walmart is upping the ante this year and opening at 8:00 PM. I think that means it's now Dark Gray Thursday.

The Internet already has many of the deals for you to shop. You may not find the complete store ads but you can still get a leg up on what the big doorbusters are going to be this year.

If you're going, I would suggest a helmet. Bicycle or motorcycle helmet would be good. Football helmet is probably going to far.
