Talkiní Turkey with Lindsay Whalen

Sun guard Lindsay Whalen's thoughts on Thanksgiving:

Q. What are your thoughts on turkey?
I like the turkey, we are friends. Actually, the turkey is best the next day on a dollar bun with a little Miracle Whip...good work.

Q. Pumpkin or apple pie?
Believe it or not, I'm not huge on pie...but in the spirit I would say pumpkin with some ice cream.

Q. Where do you go for Thanksgiving?
Well its usually just at my house. Although in college we were always somewhere playing for Thanksgiving..It was nice though. I got to have some great Thanksgivings in some cool places.

Q. Describe your turkey dinner.
It's pretty normal I guess...The 'fam' sitting around eating to the 'point of no return'.

Q. Cranberry sauce: yes or no?
Cranberries from the jar in the shape of the jar, only.

Q. Stuffing in or out of the turkey?
Out of the turkey and on my plate...I love stuffing!

Q. Dressing or gravy?
Gravy train.

Q. What's your favorite balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?
Garfield or Spongebob?


Q. Who will you be rooting for this Thanksgiving? Falcons or Lions?
Broncos or Cowboys?

I will be rooting for individual players as I have money on who wins
the turkey legs...haha JK..

Q. Does your old high school have a Thanksgiving Day game against
their top rival? If so, who is the rival?

Nope...I have never heard of that actually...I'm from Minnesota where we take holidays to chill.

Q. Your thoughts on the Vikings' playoff chances:
If we would play Eli Manning every week I think we might make it in, but I think
yesterday was our only free hall probably not gonna be there this year.

Q. Does your family have any Thanksgiving Day traditions (ice fishing, backyard football)?
We used to play football and basketball but now we just hang out.

Q. What are you thankful for?
I am most thankful for my family and friends and the opportunities that I have to spend time with them. I also am thankful to be able to have done and seen what I have through the game of basketball.
