The Turkey & The Pigskin
They just seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. Ketchup and mustard. Brangelina and adoption papers.
Yes, the combination of Thanksgiving day and football seems to be one of the greatest pairings on earth. There’s just something about eating turkey and watching athletes run at full speed into one another that makes it one of the greatest holiday traditions.
No matter who is playing and no matter what the score, the NFL just has a way of helping us kick off the Christmas season. No pun intended. Well…maybe a little. It’s a grand tradition, and I’m looking forward to continuing it this year.
This year’s Thanksgiving day schedule has no shortage of interesting story-lines. The Titans are coming off their first loss of the season, the Cowboys are in the hunt for a wild card spot, the Cardinals continue to be one of the year’s biggest surprises, and Eagles fans will be keeping a close eye on Donovan McNabb after his second half benching on Sunday.
As for the games themselves, my picks are the Titans, the Cowboys, and the Cardinals. It’s a prediction shared by many, I’m sure. But the NFL seems to pull off more upsets than any other sport. So what do you all think? Do you think there is any upset potential?
Guess we’ll find out.
All that said, Thanksgiving means much more than tackles and touchdowns. It may not always be an easy day depending on your circumstances, but it’s an important one. Whatever life has thrown you this year, the TwoNateShow wants to wish everyone out there a very meaningful Thanksgiving holiday.
Enjoy the games, enjoy the food, and enjoy the day.
