For the last so many years, it has been my Thanksgiving tradition to watch the Detroit Lions LOSE. Today was no different. Although they played better than they have in years, their best was still not good enough. Boohoo. Just kidding. I was reveling!
So Thanksgiving is mainly about family, great food, and football. Of course, years ago (15 or so) I resented the game that occurred on the day we were supposed to break bread and give thanks. I’ve acclimated and happily watch snippets of the match up in between turkey prep, basting, cooking, and baking. Then I rejoice when the scoreboard glares at the Lion’s coach.
Am I a little jaded? Yup. Will I ALWAYS root for the Lion’s opposing team? Absolutely! Detroit just doesn’t do it for me!
