Green Bay Packers players fell for the Thanksgiving Turkey prank again.
The players received a note in their locker after practice on Wednesday that said “You can pick up your turkey” at a local supermarket just blocks from Lambeau Field between 3:30pm and 5pm. Veterans then hand their memo over to the nearest rookie and tell them to go get their turkey for them.
Rookies then walk into the supermarket with orders to pick up anywhere between 7 to 10 turkeys for themselves and their teammates.
The players think they’re just picking up the turkey’s and not being hit with the bill. So there’s a few surprising moments at the cash register and they’re all caught on camera and shown on the head coach’s television show.
The prank seems to get a little earlier every year but the organizers of it don’t want word of the deal to leak out to the players from fans and media.
