I have an excellent Miller Lite '09 that will go well with the American Football contest I will be viewing.

Cranberry sauce/relish is definitely a wine killer. I usually wait until seconds on food or my third or fourth glass of wine before I put it on my plate. Coconut creme pie is great, but, as you suggest kind of difficult to pair. I'd try a PX sherry or, better a Bual or Malmsey Madeira, the acidity should cut through the creaminess of the pie, and if you're lucky it'll have some tropical fruit flavor to it that'll play off the coconut nicely.
Dinner: ah hell I don't know. nothing alcoholic
If you still need a reason to open a fancy bottle, open the fancy Riesling. A $20 vs $200 Riesling can make a big difference (although the $20 ones are still pretty good).
if you're dropping $200 no a Riesling, odds are you'll be picking up a Trockenbeerenauslese or a Beerenauslese. Stellar wines, no doubt, but high residual sugar that I think would be more suited as a dessert wine (as they usually are regardless of the meal). Also, you'll be dropping big coin for a 375 ml bottle. For German riesling, I'd probably stick with SpÃ¤tlese or Auslese, the former being a little dryer. It's easy to spend $35-70 in this category and pick up a sensational wine. I'd drink these with the actual meal and then leave the big guns for the dessert.
