Even more legendary than the food is the annual Thanksgiving Day family football game. All ages and abilities roll off the couches and onto a makeshift backyard gridiron to settle which bunch of ragtag athletes are king.
There’s laughs and tears and grandkids seeing the darkest sides of their grandparents. White shirts turn into brown and green shirts and pants get ripped beyond repair. It truly is a magical day.
Whether it’s touch, flag or tackle there’s always the possibility of a hospital trip, so try your best to stay in one piece. And remember, we’ll be right there on the sidelines with a cooler of beers cheering you on.
