Thanksgiving is for Football

It just seems right to watch, play, and enjoy football on Thanksgiving day.  Whether you're watching the NFL, high school, or getting into arguments over if that "two handed touch" was really a tackle, Thanksgiving is a day to enjoy the gridiron.  

Friday Night Lights

Although I only played high school football for two days during preseason, I do understand the draw to playing under the lights.  Rushing the field to a hill full of fans, making the big play, and celebrating with your teammates fills you with a sense of thrill that can't be matched many other times in your life.  The players give everything they have to their team and the lights amplify it all.  The ups and the downs.
