Games In The Snow

November 29, 2019

It’s called the Turkey Bowl. It’s played on the morning of the 4th Thursday in November. It’s pretty much an annual tradition in many parts of the US.

It certainly an annual tradition in our neighborhood. It occured yesterday morning. Something else happened yesterday morning as well; it snowed. In fact, we had a winter storm warning starting at 3:00AM Thanksgiving morning and continuing to Saturday at 10:00am.

The snow really started getting serious at 8:00am when we met for the game at a nearby park.

Being a church group we started with a prayer.

Just like in elementary school, they picked sides.

The ground was covered, but they used endzone markers.

The snow was coming sideways.

One of the participants creates the line markers.

Okay, they weren’t straight, but it wasn’t that kind of game.

And they kicked off in the snow.

Tom Brady was less than his NFL stats would have indicated.

Flag football

Utah fans were well represented. (Although he’s a BYU student.)

Plenty of high school Varsity and JV players including the starting QB for the local high school.

At the end of the day there were handshakes and smiles all around.

Thanks for playing in the snow.

The local Missionaries also came by. The Elder form Australia got his first taste of American football. . .and snow.

Snow on the footballs.
