Since we all are stuffing our faces and watching football all day, I thought I’d combine the two. Here are my choices of which current Patriot would be which part of Thanksgiving dinner.
Chef – Bill Belichick: He decides what food is on the table, as well as how much, and which sides to pair with which main dishes.
Turkey – Tom Brady: The long-time centerpiece at the table, the main course, that which is tasty long after the main meal is complete.
Stuffing – Rob Gronkowski: You can’t imagine it without the turkey, and it’s strong enough to stand on its own as a top Thanksgiving choice.
Gravy – Julian Edelman: Versatile enough to accent everything. Thanksgiving dinner can still be enjoyed without it, but it’s not nearly the same.
Mashed potatoes – Dion Lewis: Everyone wolfs this one down quickly to give their forks a break from the turkey, yet the two can also go together.
Cranberry sauce – Stephon Gilmore: Love him or hate him, he is a long-time staple of the meal, and the dish has a tendency to grow on people.
Mac and cheese – Malcolm Brown: While there are people who don’t see this as a part of their Thanksgiving meal at all, for many,
Green beans – Kyle Van Noy: Not everyone likes them, but they can go anywhere, accent and be accented widely, and are always on someone’s plate.
Bread – Trey Flowers: A ubiquitous part of the meal, on everyone’s plate yet often forgotten.
Squash – Nate Solder: There are three types of people regarding this: those who don’t look at it or think about it, those who love it, and those who hate it. The last two are always extreme in their emotion towards it.
Pumpkin pie – Brandin Cooks: For finishing off the meal.
Pecan pie – Danny Amendola: Some people prefer this to the pumpkin, others vice versa, but despite their both being desserts, they have different flavors and can both be enjoyed.
Have a fantastic holiday, everyone.
