Briefly.

“Through the years we all will be together, if the fates allow”

Trivia #1: Where did the Grinch live?

Trivia #2: What does campanology mean?

Trivia #3: What is legendary sportscaster Brent Musburger’s middle name?

“Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel – born is the King of Israel”

There’s being hungry and then there’s getting sushi from a gas station.

“Well maybe just a half a drink more – Put some music on while I pour”

DYK: Brent Musburger (81) is the lead broadcaster and managing editor at Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN) and the radio play-by-play voice of the Las Vegas Raiders.

“Just remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your own heart”

Headline of the week: “My husband and I are planning on giving our daughter a home for Christmas. Are we making a mistake?” – Who are these people??? BTW, another Christmas, another day there’s no Mercedes in my driveway with a bow on it.

“Sleep in heavenly peace”

The University of Arizona has hired the New England Patriots’ quarterback coach Jedd Fisch as their new head coach. I guess that is because he did such a good job with Cam Newton this past season. DOH!

“You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear, voices singing let’s be jolly, deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Don’t eat December snow, it’s just not ripe.

“O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, much pleasure doth thou bring me” – for you locals, remember to save your Christmas tree for my personal, off-winter burning entertainment!

Joining in prayer… you’re doing it wrong. 37-year old Jesse Martinez shared a two-person room with an 82-year old man at Antelope Valley Hospital in Los Angeles. Both were being treated for COVID-19. The two did not know each other but the elderly victim’s Catholic praying upset Martinez on the morning of December 17. Martinez is accused of grabbing an oxygen tank and pummeling the victim to his death.

“’Tis the season to be jolly”

We have enough youth. How about a fountain of smart!

Good news: 57-year old Mary Shannon Daniel, whose husband has early-onset Alzheimer’s and is an assisted living facility, took a second job as a dishwasher with a cleaning crew to get around coronavirus restrictions  barring visitors. Daniel made headlines after posting about her being reunited with her husband after an unbearable 114 days. (Godspeed to any of you out there going through anything similar)

“Ding, dong, ding dong… that is their song”

Pittsburgh wide receiver JuJu Smith-Shuster has announced that he will no longer dance on his opponent’s midfield logo, or his own, before games. This is after coach Mike Tomlin said he would speak with Smith-Shuster this past week. Tomlin said the dancing was simply a sign  of disrespect. I should not that apparently the act was not disrespectful while the team was 11-0, but it became disrespectful after the team’s 3-game losing streak. Mike Tomlin is a buffoon.

“Bells are ringing, children singing, all is merry and bright”

I keep trying to see your point of view but I can’t seem to get my head quite that far up my ass.

“You’re a crocked dirty jockey and you drive a crocked hoss, Mr. Grinch”

Get your relatives speaking to one another again by sending a heartfelt Christmas card with a picture of your family with an extra child nobody knows.

“All is calm, all is bright”

Next Gen useless stat of the week: The Green Bay Packers’ tight end Robert Tonyan has the highest catch percentage in the NFL at 89.09%. Second is Tampa Bay’s Chris Godwin at 80.88%.
