Twas the day before Christmas, and my spirits are high,
you talk about excitement, just look at this guy! (points to self)
The standings are set with the playoffs quite near,
in hopes that fake Gruden will provide Christmas cheer.
Jaws and Tirico are snuggled in bed,
while visions of A-gaps blitz through their heads.
And I on my stool, with a pants tent that's foul,
hitting rewind for hours, while perfecting my scowl.
When I woke up at 4, I jumped with a start,
the games were today and my hair was sans part!
I combed it real quick and and looked with intrigue
at this week's great schedule in the Nat. Football League.
When I gazed at the games my eyes were a-wonder,
the Bears and the Packers playing on frozen tundra?
And the Jets and the Giants, in a battle of New York?
Whichever teams loses, just give 'em a fork.
Then there's Norv and the Chargers, playin' Suh in Detroit,
that guy is tenacious, Jaws, and his skills are adroit.
He plays with a toughness that's sometimes quite haughty,
And I'm guessing the list that he'll be on is "naughty."
The game of the day is played out near Dallas,
in a place that's so nice, I call it "the palace."
Romo and Vick and DeSean and Dez B?
What's that thing Ochocinco says? Oh, right, "child please."
Now this guy! Now that guy! Now Rodgers and Brees!
On that guy! On this guy! On guys, all of these!
To the top of the field! Our gameday awaits,
I'll tell 'ya, I'm hyped for this NFL slate.
But then, in a twinkling, I saw on the field,
a young man with much stubble and an aura congealed.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Out the tunnel came Tebow with his step in a bound.
He was dressed all in orange, from his head to his toes,
yet his clothes were all bathed in this heavenly glow.
A bundle of comebacks he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a savior, with all that eye black.
He sprang under center. To his team, led a prayer,
Tim, he's got moxie, a trait that's so rare.
Then I heard that guy call, as he passed out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"
