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.

Holla! The weekend is over, unfortunately. It was so nice to have all those days off, even if most of the time I was laying in bed watching Friday Night Lights. That show is killing me. But what else are you going to do when you’re sick besides stay in bed and watch some good ol’ fashioned TV?

My social outings for the weekend involved a very good friend Missy coming over, which is very exciting for me because she just moved to New York so this will become a regular happening.

I also saw The Blind Side with my cousin (yes, more football). It gets an “eh” from me. I mean it was good but it didn’t change my life. I also made it to church and then finally, what we have in this above here photo is some karaoke at Japas 38. There were 15 of us crazies, two mics and one tamborine. Really. We asked for a tamborine and they provided. It was hilarious.

Karaoke in New York is way better than karaoke anywhere else, because here you can rent rooms to hold your group so you don’t spend an hour waiting around for the one song you requested when you walked in. It’s just you and your friends making fools of yourselves in front of each other because nobody cares. That’s the way to do it. And now you know where I got the title of this post. :)

Here’s another Thanksgiving tradition for you: The Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day Game. Now you may say the Lions are the worst team in the NFL, but I’ll have you know that we have won TWO games this year. Two, people. And next year, maybe we’ll win three. Ha! I am a huge Lions fan, have been since the Barry Sanders days, and I WILL be at the Superbowl when we get there. That’s folks, you heard it here first, the Lions are going to the Superbowl! YAYYYYYY!!!!!

Ha. Anyway, the Lions game on Thanksgiving is a years-long family tradition. So we went to Ford Field. There were 11 of us in the gang, two of whom were friends of mine that moved to Chicago after college. I was so happy to hang out with them:

The beginning of the game was cool cause the Lions scored the first touchdown but then it pretty much ended right there on our end. There’s always next year!

So, we took a stroll around, checked out the merch and grabbed some Polish sausages. Mmm. My mom, older sis, Aunt and cousin were working a Big Boy stand so we kept stopping by and saying hi to them too.

That’s no dirty-water city hot dog, right there!

The best part is that while we were walking around, we saw the Tim Hortons cup walking around, holding hands with a little girl!

Now isn’t that the cutest little cup of coffee you ever did see?

Go Lions! ROARRRRRRRR!
