Don't Start New Thanksgiving Traditions

If football hasn't been a family Thanksgiving tradition, and you've normally gone for cards, don't feel the need to involve yourself in it just because a grade schooler shows up at the meal with fancy new ideas. Certainly, don't feel the need to leap for a pass when you're thirty-six and there's a steep slope nearby and you're in dress shoes. I didn't damage anything, but my lower back and left thigh muscle both attest to the fact that I probably should have. On a positive note, I caught the pass and I'm pretty sure my team won overall - not that it was too much effort to win considering my father-in-law threw a pass that was blocked by a basketball pole (jokingly referred to by my brother-in-law before the game started as the "third defender").
