It's defenitely on at our house. It's a good way to determine where everyone is going to be eating at our house as the family is so big that one table cant even hold 1/4 of the people eating.

We've never watched football on Thanksgiving...I don't think anyone in our family is a huge football fan, although we do throw a huge superbowl party every year.

I am super happy that my husband is not a sports fan. I can't stand to watch football ever and especially not on Thanksgiving!!!

My mom has gotten all super into the Titans though so over the last few years I've had to become more tolerant to it. She's even gone to games on the holidays sometimes! I think they're not doing very well this year though so maybe we won't have to suffer through football. hah hah.

Sorry guys!

Not a huge football fan here, I prefer hockey. But everyone of the male variety in my family loves football. But, I have to say Thanksgiving would not be the same without it.

I dislike it. I am not a football person, and after our meal when the t.v. gets turned on to watch football, I do not look forward to it, and neither does the kids.

I am a big football fan, and I can not imagine Thanksgiving without watching football and trying to stay awake through the game after an overdose of
tryptophan from too much Turkey

I LOVE IT! It has been a tradition of mine to watch the Dallas Cowboys play on Thanksgiving Day. I do not feel it's Thanksgiving without football and I am a die hard Cowboys fan. I have been to 2 Cowboys games on Thanksgiving Day and got to see the John Madden turkey, I sure am going to miss Madden. The first one I went to is when Tom Landry was coach and the second one was when Jimmy Johnson was coach.

My Thanksgiving Day starts out with the parade, then company over for lunch, football then Christmas movies! What an awesome day!
I'm a Lions fan and just happy that they are still allowed to be on Thanksgiving as horrible as they have been. I'm already looking forward to Thanksgiving 2010, I can smell that turkey already!

I could do without football on Thanksgiving, mainly because I think they should put different teams on. (sorry Cowboys and Lions fans) I could probably get into it more if they changed it up. What I truly hate is when football is on Christmas eve or Christmas day, my family (in-laws) watches it and that ends the Christmas movies or music because the game is on.

I heard that they are thinking about changing the teams every year that play on Thanksgiving. Don't know if or when they will do that though.
