Sports Thread Thanksgiving Weekend

November 23rd, 2013 at 2:41 pm by under Bill's Blog, Sports, Weather

    Gotta get this up early because of the Lions game today.  Can the Lions win one out of ten games on Thanksgiving Day.  On paper, the answer is yes (no Rodgers, home field, etc.), but this is the Lions on Thanksgiving Day.  There are 3 NFL games today.  The Lions play at 12:30 on FOX.  At 4:30 has the Oakland Raiders and the Dallas Cowboys.  In the evening you can see Pittsburgh and Baltimore on NBC/WOOD-TV.   Since the Lions play today, we may get the Bears/Vikings game if FOX has a game at 1 PM Sunday.  The Sunday evening game is Baltimore at Washington (with RG III and Holland’s own Kirk Cousins).

There are 16 college games on Friday.  At 2 pm Eastern Mich. is at C.M.U.  The weather should be cool and dry.  There are 2 games on WOTV4.  At Noon, it’s a Big Ten showdown with Iowa at Nebraska followed by Miami (FL) at Pittsburgh.   Saturday, the big Michigan/Ohio State game is on WOTV4 at Noon from Ann Arbor.    The Minnesota at Michigan State game is also at Noon on the Big Ten Network.  My Badgers host Penn St. at 3:30 on WOTV4.  Georgia and Georgia Tech is the 3:30 game on WOTV4.  Notre Dame has a tough match-up with Stanford at 7 PM out west (FOX).  On WOTV4 you can see UCLA and USC at 8 PM.  That’s #22 and #23, pretty even match-up.

The high school playoff games are all day Friday and Saturday from Ford Field.   We have half a dozen W. Michigan teams playing, but since the blog gets comments and readers from all over the state and beyond, I’ll show you the complete schedule.  Tickets are $10 and you get to see 4 games and be in Ford Field…pretty good deal.  The Friday games are televised on FOX Sports Detroit-Plus; the Saturday games are on FOX Sports Detroit.

    Was on the Northwestern sideline before today’s game. Saw Jack Dole there and asked if he was going to get the opportunity to go to the upcoming Winter Olympics Games. He had a pretty good string of consecutive Games that he had been asked to cover, but I wasn’t sure if he wasn’t asked to cover the London Summer Games? He mentioned that he has been asked to go. I couldn’t remember if it was CNBC or MSNBC? I thought that I heard Bill mentioned in this Blog mentioned that his son was being recruited for football. Can anyone confirm that and what position his son plays.

    I still don’t know how Green Bay and Bear’s fans can sit out in the cold to watch a football game in November and December. That was one of the coldest games that I have been through start to finish with the 27 degree temps and stiff NW winds.

      They gave up 5 turnovers, and lost to 2-8 team at home. How embarrassing. Also Packers and Viking finish in a rare tie!
