Earlier this week the New York Guardians and the DC Defenders got their fans ready for the return of the XFL and Thanksgiving by sending out footballs packaged like a turkey.

On Tuesday the Tampa Bay Vipers got in on the marketing fun for the upcoming season and they got some help from the Lightning, who incorporated some football into their daily practice.

Not a bad way to spend some time at practice, it’s always good to switch things up a little bit.
