Turkey Bowl

I know what you're thinking. What can google come up with for Turkey Bowl? And do i ever disappoint when it comes to a google image search?

The answer is no, I never disappoint. and this trophy may be the best trophy i have ever seen when I searched for Turkey Bowl on the internet. Go ahead, just try to beat it.

I have two turkey bowl games to go to this year. One is an old group of friends from high school, my friends from marching band. Here is what we look like playing football.

We're those people getting stomped on by that guy with a jersey. We wear jerseys ourselves, some of us have gloves, it usually rains, we get muddy, and all around just have a blast. I believe this is the 5th or 6th year for the turkey bowl, founded by Ian P. Carr. His home hosted us for breakfast, and the park near his house hosted our game. It was a great way to start off thanksgiving, running around, getting muddy, and hoping no one broke a bone.(No one ever did)

Now I have a Black Friday Turkey bowl game too. I'm not sure what this will be like. Maybe this:

But I sure hope not. I think it will be very much like the game on Thanksgiving. A lot of uncoordinated guys running around, praying they don't break a bone. I'll be one of them. Because as much as i love my football, and running around, and tackling people, I've been on the end of one of those bone crunching hits. The ones that require a hospital visit, surgery, and a couple of months of physical therapy.

Never again.


  1. Turkey and football make thanksgiving what it is. So glad you're in the spirit =)

  2. You've inspired me. I am going to tackle everyone in my family at least once this Thanksgiving. ;)


  3. I'm glad to know I can be an inspiration to people out there. Especially when it comes to form tackling.
