The best Black Friday deals for sports fans

New, comments

There are a lot of great sales that sports fans can take advantage of.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

It wont be long before you gorge yourself on turkey and football, enjoying one of the biggest holidays of the year. Now it's time to prepare for your post-Thanksgiving consumerism in style, and if you're a sports fan Black Friday has a lot ot great deals to offer.

The old adage is that it's best to wait until right before the Super Bowl to buy a TV, but this year it seems to be all about the Black Friday sales. We're not close to the point where you'll need or want a 4K screen, so it might be worth braving the crowds if you're slightly underwhelmed by your less-than-giant television.

Some of the best deals are beginning on Thursday night, so if you're prepared to survive the crowds it's worth getting out there.

Thursday
