Wow, I am behind.

The Detroit Lions. Lost last night and lost unfortunately when I was home for the Thanksgiving Day Game. I’ve gone to the Thanksgiving Day Game pretty much every year in my life, except for one when I was spending Thanksgiving in Hong Kong, visiting my friend S up there on the left. And E there on the right, he’s a big Lions fan too. We’ve got pride. (Get it – Lions *pride*?)

This past Lions game was one of the better ones, mostly because we got to tailgate before the game started, which we never do. I feel like I know a lot of people and a lot of people who know people but for some reason I RARELY know people who actually have a legitimate tailgate. Not this year! S had the hookup for us and part of it included deep fried turkey. Yes! I have heard of this phenomenon for years (as well as the injuries sustained to people doing it) but I had not actually tried. I don’t know what I was expecting exactly but I can tell you it surpassed all expectations.

See below:

There it is! I wasn’t expecting the fryer to be so small, that’s for sure. But the group went through three fried turkeys, understandably. Also, the turkey looks a little burnt – but the meat I had was not at ALL.

In fact:

Possibly the best turkey I have ever had. All I know next Thanksgiving will be a MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT if I do not have this again. I’m tempted to buy a deep fryer for my apartment cause I have my mom and older sis coming to NYC for Christmas but I feel like that would be nothing but trouble. So, not happening. But fried turkey, I will be having again. It was soooo juicy and so good.

And here’s some more of our Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day Crew. We always have a crowd of about 15 family members (including E who is honorary on Thanksgiving Day for maybe three years now?) Good times, good times. Now Lions, if you could only start playing just a little better for me.
