Shutdown Corner - NFL

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.

Extra presents under the tree for whoever it is doing the Dave Chappelle robot dance in the first clip and to Ben Roethlisberger(notes) for his bit at the 7:50 mark.
