Happy Thanksgiving – Sports ThreadNovember 22nd, 2012 at 12:01 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Sports, Weather
Happy Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving means the Detroit Lions are on TV (they can sell car commercials…watch especially for Ford commercials during the game and that’s one of the reasons Detroit held onto this Thanksgiving game while they have been a weak team). Today the Lions face a third loss in a row with Houston (9-1) coming to Ford Field. The Lions have lost 8 Thanksgiving Day games in a row, by an average of 21 points (35-14). There are 3 NFL games today back-to-back-to-back. Detroit and Houston start the action at 12:30 PM. The Lions (4-6) are fast fading from the playoff picture. The evening game is New England at the Jets and that game is at 8:20 PM on WOOD, TV-8. There are Friday and Saturday high school playoff games at Ford Field and we wish our local teams the best. Temperatures will be falling a bit during the day Friday and Saturday will be chilly there with a chance of flurries and temperatures much of the day in the mid 30s. Central Michigan (5-6) plays at Massachusetts (1-10) (which also played Michigan and Western Michigan this year) at 3 PM. Saturday is the big Michigan-Ohio State game. The weather in Columbus looks partly sunny and maybe 38-40 (kind of chilly). That game is on WOTV4. MSU heads to Minnesota with both teams really in need of a win. That game is on the Big Ten Network. Notre Dame tries to keep their perfect record intact at USC. That game is an 8:20- PM start and it’s on WOTV4.
