Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving proves tradition isn't always a good thing in sports and golf
Thanks to the fact enough of us sketchy Expats live in Prague, Thanksgiving will be alive and well. Several restaurants and pubs serving traditional (we’ll see about that) turkey dinners will also be showing NFL football on their TVs.
And guess what’s scheduled at 6:30 (or 18:30 to these wacky Euros)? Yes, the Detroit Lions vs. Joey Ballgame (I’m absolutely hoping he WAXES the Lions) and the Miami Dolphins.
Look, just because the Lions helped institute the Thanksgiving NFL game, it doesn’t mean we should be subject to their embarrassing franchise internationally every Turkey Day.
I mean c’mon, we’re trying to EAT here!
But no. The Lions franchise is rewarded with global exposure despite a tradition of a front office aloof, players who are bums and coaching staff who are arrested for drunk driving WHILE NUDE.
Maybe the NFL should send the Lions a message and tell them no more Thanksgiving games until they make the playoffs or bring back the legendary Wayne Fontes, or as I like to call, “the good years".
Sometimes tradition is given a free ride in sports. No playoff in NCAA DI football, baseball players dip chew during games, women aren’t allowed at Augusta, etc.
Common sense usually prevails eventually, but tradition sometimes makes it a longer road. Hopefully the NFL will give the Thanksgiving Day slot to a franchise more deserving (I hear Knibb High has a good squad this year).
And one day maybe the weenie boys in green jackets will let girls in their precious little fort.

Oklahoma is here to stay at the top Tucker...but nice trying to badmouth them.
You again? seriously? Do you have a life? that post was like over a month ago. You're unemployed I'm sure...
You clearly missed the entire point of my post, too. Boren is still a wanker. It shouldn't be up to the president to speak out on behalf of the AD, and when death threats are summoned upon people, he did nothing about it. Still classless, just like you.
Seriously, you have no life outside of OU football and you should reconsider your priorities in life.
Oh and you have got to be the worst 'writer' if that's what you want to call yourself I have ever witnessed. First you say it is not Boren's place to speak on behalf of AD and then say he never did anything when death threats were sent. WTF? First he never spoke of AD in anything and second if it's not his place to speak on behalf of him why is it his place to speak on behalf of an insane fan who he has no idea it is or has no control over.
And if I'm classless for saying I hope you tear your rotator cuff then you are just the same my friend. Pot calling the kettle black.
