A tradition on my dad's side of the family has been to play a big family football game the day after Christmas. We call it the "Bearman Bowl," and in the past have gone as far as making T-shirts for this annual event. I've been told this tradition goes as far back as when my dad was in college in the '70s. It's so much fun to watch the older generations have a great time playing the game as if they were all in their 20s again.
