Gobble!Gobble! That wasn't a Turkey that was my prediction for the Lions ruining yet another of my Thanksgivings! I still remember the 1980 Game, which I wish I could forget. Following is the synopsis of what happened to crush a young (9 years old) Street Legal's Thanksgiving:
1980 - QB Vince Evans scored on the last play of the game, and KR David Williams returned the overtime period's opening kickoff for a 95-yard touchdown as Chicago stunned Detroit, 23-17. The game, at the time, was the shortest OT (21 seconds) in NFL history.
From ready to celebrate a win to OK it's OT maybe we'll get this, lost the coin toss(?), no problem we can still wi..... wai....... tackle hiiiii....... aw crap! I think I cried over that one and did not enjoy dinner (if I even ate at all)!
That said Happy Thanksgiving to all!
And thanks for letting me share.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope the Skins finally come through and win one in Big D on turkey day.

Happy Turkey Day to all, hope nobody has to work, God help you if you're in retail...
Street, I remember a Thanksgiving game in '95 I think when Scott Mitchell beat Warren Moon and my Vikes in a shootout. I remember watching it in a hotel with my band, which was on the road at the time.
Best memory I have though is the '87 Vikes-Cowboys game that Darrin Nelson won for the Purple with an O.T. touchdown run, 44-38, the only time he ever spiked the ball in his career! I was happy that day!! Not far behind is the '98 Vikes putting it to the Cowgirls again with Moss and crew. All those were exciting, big scoring games.
