Human bowling has become a staple of between-periods entertainment in the NHL, as someone in an inner-tube is hurled across the ice in a slingshot into oversized pins.

Well, the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL, the ever-innovative team behind Justin Bieber contracts and cemetery plot giveaways, decided to change the gimmick for Thanksgiving:

Behold, turkey bowling.

The “pin” at the end of the ice lane was a cardboard cutout of Rawhide The Bull of the San Francisco Bulls.

So a turkey is attacking a steak. And we all win.

We see no reason why this can’t extend into the actual game. Frozen cranberry sauce discs or crescent rolls instead of pucks. Or balls of stuffing. Opening faceoff is two guys pulling on a wishbone. And instead of a shootout, a pie fight. Which has as much to do with hockey as the shootout, come to think of it.
