Stars Hit Field And Duke It Out On Thanksgiving (Nov. 27)

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some celebrities don’t mind a little blood, sweat, and tears on Thanksgiving (Nov. 27).

Several stars have Turkey Day traditions that involve sporting showdowns between family members.

For instance, Blue Lagoon actor Christopher Atkins participates in his own family “Turkey Bowl” each Thanksgiving, where “smack talk” is the ultimate strategy.

He laughs, “The game gets really intense but all you gotta do is smack talk. It’s really bad between my son and I because he’s a baseball player at UNC Charlotte and I’m like, ‘You don’t have to worry about getting hurt playing baseball, but I’m taking you out at the Turkey Bowl!’”

After the muddy game and the “hospital session” Atkins jokes that the family is finally able to talk without tackling each other.

Nickelodeon actor Raja “RJ” Fenske also plays his own Turkey Bowl with friends, but admits he’s not that great at football since he played basketball growing up.

Finally, Taylor Atelian – who played Jim Belushi’s daughter in According To Jim – hits the field for a Thanksgiving soccer game each year with her family and says the tradition is so competitive, “It’s not even funny!”
