Ok.. so I have trouble with time zones.

When they say this game is going to start at 12:30 Eastern, does that mean kick-off will be 12:30 Eastern or that coverage will start at 12:30 Eastern & kick-off will actually be 1:00 pm Eastern?

Just trying to figure out how big a plate I should fix

Kickoff's at 12:30pm ET. Pre-game probably starts an hour earlier.

And I have to make sure I can get up that early... 9:30am out here.

My family usually starts eating at one; I plan to DVR what I won't be able to watch and then catch up on it in the evening.

Priorities people. We eat at my parents house at 1pm, but this year I've told them no formal dining room instead we need to eat in front of the TV. In return I told them not to worry about the Turkey because Ill take care of it. Bird goes in the deep Fryer around 10am, out in time for the game.

This usually isn't a problem.... no one cares to watch the Detroit game.


Usually.

Well, since I'm the boss on Thanksgiving day, and I do most of the cooking, I can assure you we will be eating AFTER the game!! Probably around 5 or so.. dinner time! Probably a late breakfast with some munchies thrown in to tide everyone over. BUT, my kids know that NOTHING will mess with my Texan football!!

Good point. I should probably ask the boss.

I, on the west coast, get to watch the game while my aunt's cackling over the potato salad.

Which might explain my hatred of potato salad.

I thought it would be the reverse. Shouldn't you thank the God of Potato Salad that allows you to watch the game?

I usually work Thanksgiving and we eat late anyway. No work this Thanksgiving though. Texans game then eat when we probably would if I did work.

Turn the oven off when she thinks she's preheating and then you can "discover" that it's not on about an hour later...there's one hour your game back. You're on your own for the other 2.

My oh my. How very Jack Del Rio of you to suggest that.

That's actually a great idea. It would succeed ONE TIME, though. I think the opposing coach wouldn't fall for it twice.

Game is always on in our extended family, no matter which household. The parade is on and then the games. That's the way it's been for the longest time.

We usually eat around 2.

But I am the cook and the Texans are on, I just need to make sure everything is ready to go before the game and just have to turn on the stove at the appropriate times.

Good thing is I can just pause the game while I am in the kitchen.

There are some funny posts in this thread. And OMG do I ever miss my turkey fryer right about now! :chef:

I'm on the road for the first time ever during Thanksgiving so I will be scrounging to find some kind of turkey. For me, though, kickoff will be at 1:30 AM, so the only food conflict will be which leftovers to eat...

We always have Thanksgiving with son's in-laws who aren't football fans. This year we are staying home. Son thought I made up the game so I wouldn't have to attend. Told him I try not to make up an excuse that is easily checked that is a lie.

I'm thinkin' of getting some tv trays. Otherwise - after the game will be time enough to eat.

If you're in Dallas or Nashville, there should be turkeys everywhere! http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/images/icons/icon10.gif

I'm somewhat confused here I guess. Are there actually Texans fans who will miss the game, or any part of it, to eat? I mean, you are eating in a house with a tv right? I wouldn't give a damn what anyone in the house thought, I would be watching the game. Especially if your are in your own home. And if I went to someone else's house I would lay the ground rules that at 11:30 am the Texans are on or I ain't coming. I actually did that with Aggies game before.

It's my house, but for us Thanksgiving has always been about family. I mean who cared about the Lions & Cowboys. This year is a little different. I'll DVR it before I put the fam on hold.

That is unless the boss (my wife) agrees.

Even with it always being Lions and Cowboys, we've always had the games on for Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. I can remember a couple of Oiler/Cowboy turkey day games. It's so much of a staple now (for me anyway), I just don't think it would feel like Thanksgiving if we didn't have the tv on football.

Wow you are a good man. In my house Texans game is most important. I love my family more than anything, and I kinda think of Bob, Gary, Matt, Arian, Andre and the guys as part of my extended family. If my son were playing on TV I would be watching. So we all need to include our Texans family in our Thanksgiving Day activities.

We did to, but we turned off the TV when it was time to eat. No one was that invested in the game that we couldn't walk away. We knew the Lions were going to lose & the Cowboy's game was always later, after we had our Thanksgiving Meal.

Whatever your plans are for today my TT friends, have a WONDERFUL, safe, and very blessed Thanksgiving day!

I'm honoring the most wonderful person I have ever known, my MOM! As some of you know, I inherited my love for the game of football from her, as well as a few awesome holiday recipe's! She always had dinner done long before any football game came on, and I will do the same. Back in the "day" it was the annual Army/Navy game, then when UT/A&M started playing on Tg we watched them. Lots of wonderful memories of a diehard football fan, and a very awesome MOM! It makes me smile this morning just knowing she is up there in football heaven getting all set and ready to cheer our boys on to victory! I truly believe God gave her a rocking chair to sit in while she watches the game!
