The best football action of Thanksgiving weekend takes place not in Detroit or Dallas, or on an SEC field. It happens in a park in Emerson, Iowa, where for more than a decade family and friends have been gathering for the PBR Bowl.
For a decade now they've been gathering at 2 p.m. on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. There's no planning, there's no invite—"Everybody just knows to come," says one of the event's founders. They're inexorably drawn by the twin siren songs of American: beer, and football.
