The Pittsburgh Steelers released an eight-minute video this week showcasing players singing various Christmas carols. It's not exactly Bing or Mariah, but it's a pretty entertaining clip:
The defensive line and offensive line have the best voices, possibly owing to their Three Tenor-like size. Pittsburgh's specialists? Well, as singers, they're not bad football players. (They could have used Jeff Reed(notes). I like to imagine that he has a falsetto.)
It's only fitting that the scary Steelers linebackers became the first singers in history to turn "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" into a menacing ditty about fear and retribution. And what's with the masks? James Harrison(notes) looks like he's about to rob a train in 1885. He also probably illegally downloaded the song, which will earn a fine from Roger Goodell.
