Left Field had just stepped out of the shower and was in the middle of stirring up a Pepto-Bismol and 7-Up cocktail (we like to call it a "Kansas City Mimosa") to both shake off a Thanksgiving Eve hangover as well as prep the stomach for the near-fatal amount of holiday foods it would be encountering later in the afternoon when we sat down for some Thanksgiving day football. But when we turned on the tube, only about half an hour after the posted kickoff of the Lions/Titans game in Detroit, the game was pretty much over.
The Titans jumped out to a 28-0 lead in the first quarter and it was clear that the miraculously inept Lions would have no chance of tightening the game. As thus we flip channels through parades, feel-good Lifetime channel movies and the Weather Channel, all of which were more entertaining than the game happening in Detroit.
Relatively loyal to the 'Hawks, we stuck it out through some of the second half (and also sat through an unsettling performance by the Jonas Brothers) but eventually tossed in the controller for the day, poured another round of Kansas City Mimosas and made our way to the dinner table. - Mike Bookey
