‘Start, Bench, Trade: Thanksgiving Side Dishes’ With The WRIF Staff
Get your favorite most comfortable sweatpants out because Thanksgiving has arrived! All of that working out and eating healthy that you’ve maintained throughout the year comes to a close today. It’s the biggest eating day of the year and you best believe we are ready. In eager anticipation of the coming feast, members of the WRIF staff played a game of ‘Start, Bench, Trade’ with Thanksgiving side dishes!
All of the jocks were given a choice of the same three side dishes: stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole. Since football is a big part of our Thanksgiving traditions here in Detroit, we decided to add an element of our favorite game to this challenge. One side dish gets to start, one is put on the bench, and then the third is traded away.
Start, Bench, Trade: Thanksgiving Side Dishes
In case you aren’t familiar with sports, hey that’s okay, I’ll break it down in a more simple fashion. You’re starting your favorite of the three, benching the second favorite, and your least favorite gets traded away. It’s the side dish you believe you could go without on Thanksgiving. However, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Let’s be honest, these are three delicious and well-known side dishes. Without any one of these, no Thanksgiving dinner is complete.
Hilarity ensues as the WRIF staff give their picks. Their choices are all different (for the most part) and they showcase their own personality and perspectives with the picks. We brought our A-game for this video. You’ll hear picks from Chuck The Freak, Jade, Meltdown, Aimee Brooks, Al Beck from Dave and Chuck The Freak, and all of the WRIF weekenders like Anne Erickson, Steve Black, Jonel, Nate, and Cort Freeman.
Check out the video of The Riff airstaff naming their favorite and least favorite Thanksgiving side dishes below! We also want to hear from you on this! Who do you agree with? Who got it all wrong?
