You just can’t get any better than this week for local football fans. Starting Thanksgiving eve local rivalry games get underway. That is followed by Turkey Bowls on Thursday with playoff games set for Friday and Saturday. Throw in some big college games on Saturday and the NFL on Sunday and you have loads of blurry eyed football fans by Monday morning.
There is nothing better for many communities than the annual Thanksgiving Day games between long time advisories from the neighborhood. The 109th meeting of Easton vs Phillipsburg, NJ, the 94th game between Upper Darby vs Haverford and the 47th contest between Interboro vs Ridley to name a few. In many cases these games are the highlight of the Turkey Day festivities for local families.
