• Ah, come on! We also eat a lot of turkey and take a nap. ;)   Probably because it's tradition and you let us.
  • This is defiantly a guy thing and has been going on forever. You know what they say...."If you can't beat them, then join them" lol
  • welllll I absolutely hate sports, don't watch them....I like beer sometimes but I would prefer vodka or sake...and instead of turkey I would much rather have some sushi or a steak...So my thanksgivings with my gf are usually very untraditional.....and I even do most of the cooking and help clean up too! maybe u need to be around less cliche men..we aren't all knuckledraggers
  • Come on, why is that only for men. I am a woman and that's all I do on Thanksgiving. Can't women have fun too.
  • Well I'm doing it cos I am alone for the holidays this year. And I drink and watch football on more than just Thanksgiving too you know!!
  • Damn it, you're right. Doesn't anybody fu*k anymore !! :-))
  • my s/o isn't drinking and he's been at his computer most of the day.he hates football.
  • My S/o is at the playground with my kids right now...
  • Well, maybe all the guys you know do that stuff, but this guy AND A WHOLE LOT of other guys I know don't do any of that stuff. I can't tell you the last time I drank a lot of beer and watched a lot of football. MAYBE you're with the wrong bunch of guys!? BELIEVE ME: There are PLENTY of good, available guys out here! They're in the professional organizations, which the industry you might be working in, are affiliated with. Ask about those groups at work. Those guys could be in your very own church, temple or mosque. If you feel as though they aren't at your particular House of Worship, attend masses, services and functions at other facilities. Find a worthy charity or cause and on a regular, dependable basis do volunteer work. It's a wonderful way to meet terrific folks - "the powers that be", "the movers and shakers". If you have a particular interest or hobby, find a club or group in your area, join it, attend meetings AND MOST OF ALL BE ACTIVE! Get on committees. Voice your ideas and opinions. Do it for one or more of the suggestions I made: Join it, Attend meetings AND MOST OF ALL BE ACTIVE! Get on committees. Voice your ideas and opinions. Meet and interact with people. AND IF you’re bashful or shy, ask about classes or groups “to get you out of your shell”. In all honesty, you aren't a child any more. No one is going to come knocking on your door asking if you can come out and play. UNLESS you're out there among them, those guys won't come to you. You have to go to where they are. Get out here AND CIRCULATE! Thanks for asking your Q! I enjoyed answering it! VTY, Ron Berue Yes, that is my real last name! Sources: Some personal observations and opinions. Two days each week, I DO volunteer work at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, Philadelphia, PA. "THE University of Hard Knocks" also known as ("a/k/a") "life's valuable lessons"
  • Thanksgiving? That sounds like my average day LOL
  • Well, I am a girl and I LOVE football. I know more about the game then most of the men I watch it with. My bf doesn't like football and he doesn't drink that much beer either. So I wouldn't say, ALL guys drink beer and watch football, but the ones that do probably do it because they can get away with it. If you turn off the tv and tell them that if they're going to eat they're going to help cook and if they're going to help make the mess they're going to help clean it up and actually make them do it I bet they'll help.
  • I don't like generalisations such as this. I worked the past 7 Thanksgivings, 12 1/2 hour shift. And the last time I was off on Thanksgiving, I cooked and execised on my treadmill.
  • Hmmm, can't stand American football, it's retarded and there's no beer in the house. Then again, I'm a Brit in America so...
  • Hey! I'm a brit and was out there last year. I loved it!
  • What kind of guys do you hang out with? My boyfriend spent Thanksgiving hanging out with me.
  • Because they are guys.
  • I can't stand football. Ice man has a much better idea.
  • I hate football and i'm drinking brandy, not beer.
  • Dude I didn't drink any beer! I glanced at the game and I made two pies. I think you're really wrong here.
  • Hey, I played golf and drank bourbon
  • Damn skippy! Thanksgiving is the best holiday for guys.
  • It's the American way. The opium of the masses
  • it's the only day they can, tradition, why ask why, some battles aren't worth fighting
