The Egg Bowl. It lives on twitter 24/7/365. It also is played on a football field, in case you didn’t know. And in 2017 and 2018, when it is played on a football field, it will be played on Thanksgiving Day.

Brett McMurphy of ESPN broke the news that it would be returning to Thanksgiving Day in 2017.

And then shortly after that, it’s being reported by the Clarion-Ledger that it’ll be played on Turkey Day in 2018 as well.

What’re your thoughts on this? Are you for or against the Egg Bowl being played on Thanksgiving?
