It's pretty unlikely that I’m on your shopping list for a Christmas present
That's ok. I haven’t been the best little boy this past year to be honest.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t deserve some sports stuff on my Christmas wish list.
More TB 12 Please
For instance it’s safe to say for us Patriots fans Tom Brady has truly been the gift that keeps on giving.
My Christmas wish is please, let him keep playing with the Pats or retire. I can't bear the thought of him in a different uniform next year.
Montana. Favre. Peyton Manning all left their original teams. Please don’t let TB 12 do the same in 2020.
Light the Damn Lamp Please
In the spirit of giving I’ve given the UMaine mens hockey team a break in recent weeks. The Grinch in me wants to steal their presents since they are once again having a disappointing and mediocre .500 season.
But in the spirit of the holidays I’ll stay positive and just say i’d like to ask for some goals for this team. If second semester is going to be worth watching at all they need to score. So, black bears more goals please.
No Bling For the Yankees Please
Another great gift idea for me has to do with the Yankees. I’d love them to take $250 million dollar payroll and not win the World Series next year. again. 10 seasons. No World Series titles for the Yankees. That’s a present that truly makes me smile.
Look- to be honest being a new England sports fan in this millennium has been a true gift. And to be a tiny part of the local sports media is the best sports gift I could ever receive. No need to keep the receipt. I’m not exchanging a thing.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
