And here's ten underrated Christmas songs in case this turns into a holiday link-dump. God bless, Bob and Doug.

What I want to know is why nobody here told me that Lance Armstrong has confessed to being not gay? I had to hear about it from my wife. Happy Holidays anyway, Sportfilter.

I, too, would like to wish everyone here at SportsFilter "Happy Holidays! And Best Wishes for the New Year!" and may Santa bring me an NFC team winning the Super Bowl!

Every day should be a holiday. Enjoy them all, sports fans.

This morning at 8:30am I spread some holiday cheer to my co-workers by farting in the revolving door. Id do the same thing for all of you if you worked in my building, because I love you all. Happy holidays!

Farting at work is underrated.

Echoing sentiments. If I was a kid I'd be watching the Bluebonnet Bowl.

Dear Santa, Give Alabama the winning game plan for their bowl game. Oh yea, and try to convince the ol' timmers and Alum that there was, and will only be one Paul "Bear" Bryant! And if they continue to measure each coach since by the "Bears" standards a good hire for head coach just aint gonna happen. Not that "Bear" Bryant was the all to end all all's what with the alchoholism and damn near abusive practices. OK yea, im asking WAY too much.

Merry Christmas my Spofi family. I hope you all have safe travels and rrecieve that certain someone under your tree Christmas tree. And for our Jewish family I hope that special someone comes (inflatable or not) with the lighting of each candle.

May you all have a Christmas Eve that surpasses watching the Bears destroy the Lions.

If Lovie Smith was smart he'd do everything he could to lose on Sunday. Anything that helps keep Matt Millen's job helps the Bears and everyone else in the NFC North who have to play the Lions twice a year. The lions win this Sunday, dropping out of contention for the overall number one pick and draft a... wait for it.. wide receiver. Teddy Ginn Jr. Dear Santa, I know as a fan I'm not supposed to say this, but please, if the NFL really wants a team in LA, let them take the Lions. They can even have the name and everything. The Los Angeles Lions has a nice ring to it, and if they played in the Coliseum they're would be history references the marketing department could make. Just promise us a Detroit team NOT owned by the Fords when the NFL returns.
