Eagles Versus Turkey During Thanksgiving Dinner

By Paul Kurtz

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Turkey won’t be the only bird served up next Thanskgiving. Here in our area a lot of eyes will be on the Eagles when they play the Cowboys in Dallas. That may present challenges for those serving dinner during the game.

Janice Bauman is head chef in her household and she’s already making plans to alter the time she traditionally serves Thanksgiving dinner.

“We usually eat at 4 in our family and I guess I’ll have to make it earlier, because I know the fellas that come to my house, they’re into the Eagles game.”

But many other fans who eat later in the day will simply work around the game.

“I’m sure the TV will be angled to fit into the dining room so that we can all watch the game at the same time. And the conversation probably won’t be as loud, because we’ll be all in tune to the game.”

“I think it’s great. You’re either just after or in the middle of the second helping. I don’t get up and walk around anyway, I’ve eaten too much. So now I have something to do.”

How well dinner goes may well depend on whether the Eagles win or lose.
