HomeGating

12-Minutes of Thanksgiving
Wikimedia Commons: Public Domain


Thanksgiving is a day when we gather together with family and friends for a day of food and football, or as I like to call it: HomeGating.

As most football fans know, halftime is 12-minutes long.  This clearly explains why the average amount of time spent eating Thanksgiving dinner is also 12-minutes. I've heard the NFL conducted 12-minute time studies to prove fans could gobble down Thanksgiving dinner while listening to Joe Bucks’ ramblings, and still get back to the television to watch the second half of the game; without heartburn.

As we get closer to Thanksgiving, I’m trying to uncover why the NFL would ban pictures of turkeys to be shown during the Eagles / Dallas game. My first thought was fear of someone mentioning Joe Buck and perfect turkey in the same sentence. Unfortunately, after numerous attempts to validate this rumor; my telephone number and social media accounts were blocked by Mr. Buck.  J 

I’m only a few months away from breaking Da NFL Code and reaping the benefits of a blockbuster movie in 2015. However, after further review, the ruling is confirmed;  all NFL films will be written, programmed, directed, produced, banned, edited, announced, filmed, scripted, copyrighted, trashed, reproduced, viewed, shared, destroyed, transmitted,  recorded, subtitled, telecasted, stored, cataloged, reproduced, broadcasted, and photographed by the NFL for the private use of their audience. Any other use of the NFL’s current or future thoughts without their consent is prohibited, and is punishable by law. Oh well, guess it’s time to throw away my Academy award thank you speech and fill the void on my mantle with my 2nd Place Beer Pong trophy.


We wish you much happiness and joy as we enter the holiday season.  From our football family to yours—Happy Game Time!

Oh, what’s a HomeGate party without a song!?!  The 12-Minutes of Thanksgiving will help you celebrate the joy of food, football and family. Enjoy!
