Thanksgiving and Buckets

Bucket List Item: Checked Off

On Thanksgiving Day I was able to do something on my Bucket List. I don't necessarily have a Bucket List written down, but there are things I would like to do — and attend the annual Lions Thanksgiving Day Game is one of those on my list. I have said for years, "We should go to the Lions game on Thanksgiving." And we never had.

The night before Thanksgiving and all on the road was lots of snow and slush and ice and (stuff). And Tyler Stegman, Courtney's fiancé, had gotten a chance to get the tickets. It was a complicated negotiation but eventually it was decided that we would attend the game. Lori even got us some gear for the game and we met at the Mt. Pleasant Olive Garden for dinner. I'll leave out the details, but suffice to say we were going to the game.

The trip down to Detroit was great as usual. The game was neck 'n' neck most of the time until the Lions kicked a last second field goal to win. The crowd is awesome at Ford Field. Imagine if the Lions ever actually put out a high quality team — the fan base will go insane! When the cats are on defense, the building is so LOUD! It has to be a tough place to play for visitors.

We ended up having our family Thanksgiving on Sunday and it was wonderful. The turkey was delicious and the noodles were possibly the most popular item. Even the pumpkin pies were top notch! Happy Thanksgiving!
