Every year I look for ways to combine the Thanksgiving games with Thanksgiving dinner- and this year I’ve come up with 4 pretttty attainable and fun ways to integrate a little football into your feasting!
2. THE LEFTOVER COUCH SURF If you celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday you will (hopefully) have leftovers. Settle in for an afternoon of football with a plate of leftovers, might I suggest main course leftovers for Edmonton at Montreal and desserts for Calgary at Toronto?
3. THE FLAG FOOTBALL FRENZY It’s a gluttonous weekend folks let’s just get it out in the open. Grab your CFL football and throw on your CFL jerseys /swag and play a little touch football while waiting for dinner. You’ll feel better about the hours of TV and eating to come!
4. THE STEALTH CFL APP Download the CFL app in your app store and use game tracker to follow along. Also enjoy highlights/ game recaps/ interviews etc…do it!
This Thanksgiving we are thankful for YOU the best fans in sports! Have a fantastic day and be sure to let us know how you’re including football into your Thanksgiving by tagging us on Twitter @CFL and on Instagram @CFL_Official
