Thanksgiving NFL gameday traditions, open thread

Remember this guy? - Bob Levey

Ok, so our first two "traditions/superstitions" posts were actually really fun so we're going to expand on them a little bit. Today, I want to know what you're doing, and what your Thanksgiving Day football watching traditions entail.

Truth be told, I don't have any strong Thanksgiving traditions other than the standard: completely engorging myself on waffles and cinnamon buns in the morning, watching some football, then completely engorging myself on turkey and stuffing in the afternoon, then watching more football.

Last year, my girlfriend, her family, and I changed things up and flew to New Orleans on Turkey Day, so funnily enough, I remember watching the Packers and Lions over someone's shoulder on the airplane, as he'd paid to get the in-flight TV cast. This year will be a bit different -- no trip to New Orleans for us, so that means way more football today and Jambalaya for dinner in lieu of a real French Quarter meal.

So what are you doing today? Let's treat this as today's open game thread, but hit me up with your biggest Turkey Day traditions. You playing football with the crew? Sitting around at your in-laws? Hit me up below, and talk about the games as well.
