    Each Walmart store will be closed on Thanksgiving Day to give both cashiers the day off to spend with their families.

    JJ acts like we all belong to the family on the Leave it to Beaver show. My family is a mix of drug using alcoholics and general deplorable types. We all have kids that will also be deplorable and that's the way we like it.

    If you don't come to the dinner table with your prop sheet you're slacking. Only risk is you're on one side and someone else is on the other. That could be a problem. Might pay to coordinate in advance.

    Simple fix... Tell all the kids that if Detroit covers +3 they will be each getting a C-note after dinner. You better believe those kids will become Lions fans instantly.

    You forgot to mention you are sweating a close game. In the fourth quarter you leave the living room to take a shit. When you get back the women turned the channel and are all enjoying a Hallmark special.

    Right. Besides, the whole point of betting sports is so you can do other things without watching the games if you don't want to, so don't see how it can interfere with anything else - unless you can't control your emotions.

    If you placed your bet before the holiday but the game is on the holiday, does this still count ?

    There was like a 3 or 4 year stretch where I skipped going to the fams thanksgiving and went to the sports book instead. Even told them they were going to mush my plays if I went and ate with them Not this year though. Largely due to the games in the card though. No good leans for me. I like the Bears but I got away with backing them on that game against Shittsburgh and promised myself I wouldn’t bet them again this year. Haven’t bet on the lions in probably 5 years and that is not changing. Raiders and Cowboys both trending downward and quickly. Bills have looked putrid last month or so but I can’t trust Semien. Some good college this weekend too so easy day to layoff.

I just don't tell my family them what side I'm on or who i took cause some of my family members are envious f*cks and will curse me to lose ..
