If you ate too good and too much at Thanksgiving dinner and you can’t even summon up the energy for the Black Friday sales, then you’ll be happy to know there are plenty of coach-potato options this weekend. “Sunday Night Football” is a battle between the last two Super Bowl champs and the 25th annual Soul Train Awards are on Sunday as well. (Let’s hope you have two TV’s in the house so no one fights over the remote.) If you do summon up the energy to leave the house, there are plenty of musical options as R. Kelly and Trey Songz continue their cross-country tours. Whatever your choice this weekend, we hope you had a happy start to the holiday season.
