Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great thanksgiving! We spent the day before thanksgiving and most of thanksgiving with Andrew’s family in Hershey, PA. But the Steelers were playing the Ravens that evening so we made our way to my parents house to watch the game.
Our family dynamic is very interesting because my mom (born and raised in Baltimore, MD) is a Ravens fan, while my Dad (who lived in Pittsburgh, PA most of his childhood) is a Steelers fan. I have always been a Steelers fan…and I mean always…like in the 1990s when they were horrible. My sister tends to go to the team that most recently won a Superbowl, so she’s currently a Ravens fan. Dad and I just told her to stay there (hehe…love you Sara!). Andrew is currently a Ravens fan too because he cheers for the team in the city he’s currently in (and plus mom
made him asked him to be a Ravens fan after we got married). So the Ravens fans watched the game in the basement and Dad and I didn’t watch the game, fearing that us watching it will cause the Steelers to lose.
Well the Steelers came up short at the end, with the final score of 20-22, Ravens. It was a great game, and my throat still hurts from screaming. I don’t know if the Steelers will make it into the playoffs this year (I’m thinking no), but the fact that we beat the Ravens earlier this season makes me a feel a little better (it’s so hard being a Steeles fan in Raven Nation!).
Did you watch football on Thanksgiving? What games were you excited to watch?
