Make no mistake; Eric Wood wants you to go all-out today and play to win. That's what the Buffalo Bills' center said on Twitter yesterday sharing his Thanksgiving plans.
I highly suggest people implement weighing in as you walk in the door and before you leave at thanksgiving. Compete in everything you do— Eric Wood (@EWood70) November 25, 2015
This is not the first time Wood has held this competition at his house but it is the first time he's encouraging others to join in the fray. Last year on his weekly appearance on local radio station WGR 550, Wood lauded his wife for making Thanksgiving dinner for several of his teammates because they didn't have family in town. The newest addition this year could pose a problem for Wood's competitive spirit.
Last year I won with a total weight gain of 7.4 pounds. Some new faces this year, could be a bigger number to beat @68INCOGNITO @GabeIkard— Eric Wood (@EWood70) November 25, 2015
That's an impressive number for Eric, but with Richie Incognito and Gabe Ikard coming over it's bound to become rowdy. When asked about the rules, Wood was very clear that it's a large person's game.
Total weight gained. Can't have a toddler win it https://t.co/D7s6m8EAv9— Eric Wood (@EWood70) November 25, 2015
This ain't about no percentage of body weight! Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Post your results in the comments section and we'll crown a champion or something.
