* Every Thanksgiving Day since 1934, the Detroit Lions have played, a tradition which began as a publicity stunt to gain them more fans. The gamble paid off and they have not missed a Thanksgiving game in over 8 decades. In 1966, the Dallas Cowboys joined the tradition at the urging of their marketing executives. Since 2006, a third game has been played in the evening, but the rosters rotate.
* The Thanksgiving turkey dates back more than three hundred years when Alexander Hamilton declared that “no American should be without a turkey on Thanksgiving”. Turkeys were likely chosen as a holiday meal because their size would allow for many people to be fed, and they didn’t have another purpose (such as laying eggs or giving milk). It would be centuries later when right here in Cajun country, the deep fried turkey was introduced and our lives changed for the better.
