Yesterday, we began the holiday by taking the kids to Ford’s Theater for “A Christmas Carol,” which they loved.
Today, I am making our usual two Turkey dinner (one smoked on the grill) and of course my traditional Waldorf salad. I also do the gravy. However, before the big culinary push, we have our traditional Turkey Bowl (45 years and running). Every year, we invite all of the kids in the neighborhood for a touch football game of the Chicago Bears (God’s Team) against the Washington Redskins. This year my Bears player will tape up our right thumbs in solidarity with Jay Cutler as we defend of three-year dominance at the Turkey bowl. Unfortunately, the Pentagon has not approved our request for a flyover, though I intend to claim a flyover by stealth aircraft.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all . . . even the Redskins.
[Update: The Bears continue our streak with a win over the Redskins at 21 to 14 even if a highly dubious Redskins touchdown following the introduction of a second ball. We returned home to celebrate to a round of Bloody Marys and boasting.]
