As predicted, there was a significant negative correlation between the number of hours of football watched over Thanksgiving and the number of hours spent in meaningful conversation over the same weekend, r = -.45, p < .05. The mean number of hours of football watched was 5.3 (s.d. = 1.37) and the mean number of hours spent in meaningful conversation was 2.1 (s.d. = 1.22).
