Favorite part of Thanksgiving: The Turkey Ball. The Turkey Ball is something that Mike’s friends family has been doing for the past 60 years on the morning of Thanksgiving. They rent the field at Sibley High School and hire refs for the game. The winner of the game wins a big bottle of alcohol as their ‘trophy.’ Good luck this year Mike!
