Which Is More Satisfying On Thanksgiving Day? NFL Football Vs. Thanksgiving Pie

Thanksgiving week! We hope you’re all enjoying a week of calm, measured discussions with your family, a nostalgic visit to your depressing hometown, and a good, long conversation with the guy from high school who still works at the Stop ‘n Shop.

But of these, there are two that stand out from the pack – football, and pie. Which of these traditions takes a top spot in our hearts? Let’s go to the tape.

Yep!...hypothetically. Able To Win You Money (If Gambling Wasn’t Frowned Upon)? If that becomes a thing, I don’t want to know the unpleasant future where people gamble on pie.
nnnnNNNNOPE! Causes Instant Shame and Regret? Every time.
