Do you know, I can't remember the National Anthem being played at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Game we attended at the new stadium. I may have been standing, though - in line to get beer. We could have toasted the team to success - can't remember that either...
We also had Turkey and Dressing in the Legends Club right before halftime.
Take that, Gerrit Losch - American Football, National Anthem, possible Toasting, and Thanksgiving Dinner all in one day.
At least I did not see anybody smoking inside the stadium.
BTW, the game was won by a team called the "Saints" - so add in babylonian religious references to the list of sins.
This is practically disfellowshipping behavior to the JWs - but just an ordinary Thanksgiving Day to normal people in Dallas, TX.
Think about it.
