The last time I saw Saint Nick, he wasn’t exactly in the jolliest of moods. In fact, he appeared fairly miserable while watching the hometown New York Giants self destruct against the Washington Redskins.
He wasn’t shouting obscenity-laced tirades like the bulk of the other fans in attendance at MetLife Stadium last weekend, but he clearly wasn’t thrilled with the effort being shown by a wannabe playoff team against a divisional rival whose fans have begun openly rooting for losses in hopes of securing a better draft pick.*
*Those fans are still morons, but that’s a story for another day.
But that was then and this is now. Hopefully Santa had a chance to drown his sorrows in a tall glass of eggnog or maybe he’s decided to join a winner and become a Redskins fan. Either way, on behalf of the big guy, let me take a moment to wish all of you a merry Christmas.
And if you don’t do the whole Christmas thing, that’s cool too. Enjoy your Chinese food and we’ll catch up with everyone in a few days.
