Well your prayers are answered, we hereby grant permission to all of you to go ahead and have your women make you a large dinner while you lay around the house all day and watch football until its time to eat, then lay around some more and drink beer and fart and nap while shes clears the table and does the dishes. Be sure and go out and play some touch football with the young folks, thats your part. Also, the US should be the first people you thank. You're welcome, and happy Thanksgiving!
You sound like most americans I know.
Deluded in thinking that the rest of the world actually gives a f*ck about the good old USA.
If thats the one day you get each year to sit around and nothing while watching "football" make the most of it.
Where I come from we have that for 52 times a year its called a weekend and if we are not watching football (AFL,Rugby Union, Rugby league, or Soccer) we have the cricket.
Speaking of cricket All of Aus gets a holiday on Boxing Day to watch the MCG filled with 120,000 fans watch Australia play the Old Enemy (England).
Plus we have the beaches to play beach cricket and the sun to go with it.
Definition of beach cricket.-----Bowl ball, hit ball, drink beer, swim in ocean, check out bikini babes, have a bbq, bowl ball, hit ball, drink beer, swim in ocean, check out bikini babes, have a bbq, bowl ball.......etc.
BTW any game where you wear a helmet, run at your opposition and bang heads together should be called head-ball not football.
