Turkey Day Sports

November 27, 2008 - Seth Staskey

Just got back from a day of feasting at two different locations. Had the normal meal with my family and then went to my girlfriend's families house for a second tremendous meal. Before, during and after the meals I sat down on the couch to watch some football.

I am a huge Tennessee Titans fan and they were on whipping the Detroit Lions to improve to 11-1. I am watching this game unfold and I am extremely happy that the Titans played so well after suffering their first loss, but at the same time I was thinking why?

Why are the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving every year? It's been that way for as long as I have been alive and my elders have confirmed it's been that way for as long as they can remember. Well, like most other things it's time for a change. The Lions have been one of the NFL's most futile franchises for quite sometime and they don't even have Barry Sanders to entertain anymore. The NFL and iron-fisting ruler Roger Goodell need to send a memo to William Clay Ford and say no more national TV games until you can put a better product on the field. That was awful.

To be perfectly honest, all three NFL games on Thanksgiving were awful. The college game (Texas vs. Texas A&M) was awful. There was a little bit of college basketball on, but it wasn't too exciting either.

I guess we can add another thing to our list to be thankful for this holiday season. I was definitely giving thanks to tryptophan, which allowed me to take a nice nap during the day. Meaning, I only had to watch the highlights of most of this terrible action.
