It’s Just Lunch, the premiere dating service for busy professionals with 85 locations worldwide, is out to set the record straight about men, women and football. According to a survey of 1,576 singles, 51% of females and 57% of males will be watching an NFL game or NCAA football game on Thanksgiving.

“Thanksgiving and football is as American as ice cream, apple pie and baseball,” says Daniel Dolan, Chairman and CEO of It’s Just Lunch. “Football has become so much of a Thanksgiving Day tradition that it has wiped out the common misconception that females hate football and hate when their men watch football.”

When asked if it will bother them when the men in their lives watch football on Thanksgiving a whopping 40% of women said no, because they will be watching football too. Another 38% of women said watching a little football is ok as long as the guys do their share in preparing dinner or cleaning up and 10% said it’s OK as long as it’s just one game.

And men, if your lady happens to be in the minority, in the 12% that says that watching football is not allowed on Thanksgiving we’d like to offer you 5 excuses you can use to get out of helping prepare dinner and get in front of the TV cheering on your favorite team.

Top 5 Excuses for Watching Football on Thanksgiving

1.Why would they put football on TV on Thanksgiving if you’re not supposed to watch it.

2.If all my team’s fans were in the kitchen preparing dinner there would be no one to support them, therefore I’m vital to their victory.

3.I didn’t stretch enough this morning to be able to stir anything too vigorously, plus I’ll cramp up if I get up too quickly and I think I threw out my back just lifting the turkey.

4.If you care about my happiness at all you will let me watch football.

5.I have to mentally prepare for a win; this takes at least three hours.
