Episode 109 - PRE-EMPTED - 11/24/66

There was no episode shot for today, as it was pre-empted for a Thanksgiving football game.

It's interesting to note that this day featured the Dallas Cowboys first Thanksgiving football game. You can read more here, but in summary:
Until 1966, the only NFL contest on Thanksgiving was always hosted by the Detroit Lions, but after the ’65 season, the league was looking to expand coverage with an afternoon game. Cowboys president Tex Schramm approached his friend, then-NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle, about playing the late game.
