Flint Family Plays ‘Finger Bowl’ Every New Year’s Day for 72 years
Not sure what's more impressive - 72 years or the frigid temps?
The Krause family has had a long-running tradition since 1947 - the Finger Bowl. The grown-ups over 30 wore red, and they played the kids, who were dressed in yellow.
The tradition was started by Chuck Krause, who broke some fingers during the first game ever, hence the name "The Finger Bowl." They play on a vacant Flint field every New Year's Day at 11 AM. This is one of the coldest ones in recent memory, obviously. But the family didn't let that stop them.
The yellow team came out victorious by two points this year and, regardless of weather, they plan on being out there on January 1st of 2019.
Very cool family tradition! "Cool" is definitely the word this year.
