Thanksgiving Day in Detroit means an issue with the coin toss.
According to reports, the Chicago Bears embarrassed themselves during the coin toss before Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Detroit Lions.
The Lions reportedly won the toss and deferred to the Bears. The Bears then attempted to defer back to the Lions but they were told that is not possible.
Unfortunately, it's real.
Ref: "You want the ball?"
Chicago player: "We want to defer."
Ref: "They already deferred."
