'Twas the Night Before Christmas, and All Through the House, All That Was Heard Was OuchAlmost all NFL players are younger than 30, only a handful older than 35. Many got married young, too, and have children. Therefore, their children are often at the age where they still believe in Santa Claus.
That means that a goodly number of said players, probably including most of the Patriots and Jets, will drag their asses back to the old if palatial homestead tonight after having the snot beaten out of their bodies for three hours by their homicidally inclined peers. THEN, they'll get to assemble and wrap dozens of presents for good little boys and girls.
Oh, how I hope any bicycles, Star Wats forts and weapons, or any other present that comes with instructions was built earlier this week by foresighted players (Belichick may have made Pats' interns go around and do it), then stashed in a neighbor's garage.
Failing that, I hope those players have a recipe for eggnog with extra whiskey and more than a dash of Tylenol.
