Draft your ideal Thanksgiving plate

@CTowersCBS

I’m not going to lie to you guys, it’s a pretty slow day around the KSR Nashville compound, as I expect it is around most workplaces today. Thankfully, CBS Sports’ Chris Towers came up with this fun Thanksgiving game in which you can “draft your best plate” using a $50,000 salary cap.

Here’s mine:

  • Turkey (White Meat): $11,000
  • Baked Potato: $7,000
  • Meat Stuffing: $7,500
  • Corn Pudding: $5,000
  • Dinner rolls: $5,000
  • Pumpkin pie: $8,000
  • Pecan pie: $6,800

That puts me $300 over, but I refuse to back down on any of my choices. If I’m allowed to ax one thing, it would be the corn pudding.

Let’s hear yours.

    You’ve got White meat costing more than dark meat, that’s crazy. The white meat of a turkey has almost no flavor at all.

    Tyler…….BAKED POTATOES?? It’s mashed and gravy ALL DAY! The problem with is you need two potato choices, 4 side dishes, 1 bread and 3 deserts. Guess that wouldn’t be much of a game though….
