From Brent’s point of view, more kids = more cost. So he began shopping the 4 a.m. after-Thanksgiving sales a few years ago. Now, with some experience under his belt, he has the day down to a science starting with the Thanksgiving Day ad line-up. While success does depend on what’s on “the roster” each year and on how tough the opposing shoppers are, Brent’s strategic analysis coupled with Amy’s online shopping support, offers a pretty good chance for an end-of-day winning celebration. This year he dodged in and out of the isles at five stores all before 7a.m.
And since 5 kids, work, and scoutmaster responsibilities give Brent no time to track March Madness, the Superbowl, the PGA Tour, and what’s it called when the baseball teams have a big tournament at the end of the year? Anyways…Black Friday fills the void and provides a year’s worth of strategic, competitive excitement for the whole family to brag about for months…plus, shopping gets done before the kids even wake up! Way to make your wife proud, honey!
The 2007 Christmas Day Football Game...
Loads of fun!! It came close to matching the
competitive spirit of Black Friday, but not quite.
