Merry Christmas to all you SpoFi grinches out there! May Santa bring you a gift that gives you the same amount of awe, wonder, and joy as this microscope is giving to my daughter right now.

And speaking of Grinches, thanks to the North Carolina GA's (well, the NC Republicans) refusal to repeal HB2, the MLS will likely not grant us a franchise.

God rest ye weary NFL franchises. The teams are tired.

You saw it yesterday. An entire game slate filled with bad tackling. Looked like a blind man's bass tournament.

Tannehill, Mariota and Carr all injured.

How do we blame the Patriots for this?

May this season of light bring joy to all SpoFites and their loved ones. Whether it's the lamps of Hanukkah or the light of Christ or the light of Kwanza or even the light at the Solstice, may we all enjoy the joy and peace of the season.

Have you checked the Pats' org chart for a voodoo priest(ess) lately? Maybe a purchasing manifest for some lifelike dolls?

Anyone buying lifelike dolls would not get a Ryan Tannehill doll if there were Lauren Tannehill dolls available.

I think this is one plot that Belichick has little or nothing to do with. Latest intel seems to show that it's the work of the Jacksonville Deep State dark ops unit, perpetrated against the fortunes of former Jags head coaches and in-state rivals.

In an effort to protect their regional football domain, these same agents of Jagdom also conspired to make sure that Kirby Smart only went 7-5 in his first season at UGA. With 4 rivalry losses, including the loss to Florida at EverBank Field and culminating in the loss to Ga. Tech between the hedges, where it hurts the most.

If they are the inflatable kind, they will not work. Remember, there can be some strange air pressure problems in Foxborough. Sticking pins into the life size blow-up dolls kind of defeats the whole purpose anyway.

Can't help but notice that lifelike Ryan is dragging his right leg, but lifelike Lauren ...is not.
