A Thanksgiving Day celebration awaits the boys in their childhood home in Detroit. Mike and John help Mom and Dad prepare a Thanksgiving meal, complete with long-time favorites White Castle stuffing and spinach balls. Prior to the tailgate, they help Denny and the Tubgaters prepare for a special Detroit tailgating tradition before hitting the lots to hang with local favorites Crackman and Yooperman.
The bus barrels into Boston to celebrate Mike's homecoming. Before the Pats game they squeeze in a bonus tailgate at the historic Harvard/Yale game, and Mike and John square off in a chowder cook-off judged by their friends. Then they hit the lots to meet the Lobstermen and watch the Reverend bring the house down with his pre-game sermon.
Tailgated on November 18, 2012.
