What’s the over/under?

4. Because we play to 4 lol. Touchdowns only, 4 plays to score, no first downs. It’s about a 50 yard field (25 width)

This will be the first year our family won't be together since 1990. My Mom passed last July. My sister, who always hosted, is going to visit my Aunt in Georgia last I heard. We thought The Wife and I would have a "Waffle House" Thanksgiving, but found out last night we are going to a Cigar Buddies' home for turkey day.

Quote of the day from my Sports and Wellness center:

Don’t worry about what you eat between Thanksgiving and New Years, worry about what you eat between New Years and Thanksgiving.

We are getting old.  This thread was a lot more fun to read 15 years ago...

This, and the quote BRF posted 

One son will be out of town working, the other will be with his buddies doing their Friendsgiving.   Mrs. Zunardo bought a 10 lb turkey over the weekend, smallest ever.  Lost 15 lbs since Oct 1, need to lose a minimum of 15 more by March for hip replacement.  The mega-eating tradition is going away for us, so it will be more about atmosphere,  and appreciation for smaller portions.

Headed to my family's for Thanksgiving. My wife and I decided before we married that we would alternate holidays every year with family -- this year it's Thanksgiving with mine and Christmas day with hers.

It's pretty low-key these days. Not the big ones we had when Granddad (died 2006) and Grandma (died in September) were alive. We had all our families together -- they had 6 kids, and there's a whole litter of grandkids.

We've moved to a Saturday party with some of the family that's able to get together. It's sorta been a "wild beast feast" where anyone can bring a dish of whatever game they've cooked. Since we've moved back to the area, this will be our first feast.

It's gone from "Getting drunk AF Wednesday night and going to mom's on Thursday" to "my wife, children and I are travelling to my in-laws for brunch and then we are hosting dinner."

hahahaha

Hope you assholes are well.

I included the possibility of drinking heavily!!!!!

Sure, 15 years ago, it was a definite instead of a possibility...but IT COULD HAPPEN!!!!!

Thanksgiving has calmed down a lot in my hometown. Two of the most popular bars on Thanksgiving Eve have closed their doors in recent years, so options are slim. You have to drive 20-25 min to the nearest hot spot.

Now it's just a lot of drinking in home basement bars.

We have hosted most years, but Greensboro this year.  Our normal breakfast-bonfire the day after Thanksgiving will have to wait a year.

I always heard between Christmas and New Years, but I'll be eating pie today instead of eggs

We played for a set time (45 min). Out of state was victorious on the field and off. 7-2 winners and 4 screwdrivers down.

Yep. My mom and dad are still friends and he comes to a lot of our parties, etc.

My best friend's dad got remarried a few years ago, and her new stepmom's ex-husband was one of the groomsmen lol. Now they spend holidays at said ex-husband/groomsman's house.

There was truly zero friction amongst about 30 people

Similar situations here, all get along. Of course they're still cousins.

I drank 4 beers before our later in the day dinner and could drink no more because I was so full.

I'm lucky in that my big meal comes around 1 p.m., so I had about 5+ hours to digest it before the drinking part of the day commenced.
