Newest sports Christmas carols brighten the holiday season for fans

Published 12:00 am Thursday, December 29, 2005

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Yes, Christmas is a great time for all seasons of the year, whether it be spring, summer, winter, football, basketball or baseball.

Christmas is not only the celebration of the birth of God’s son, but it is many different things to each of us individually.

For my family, Christmas is also about the family getting together, going to church, eating good food and, most importantly, singing Christmas carols as we watch the college bowl games.

One problem with Christmas carols is we know the melody but we can’t recall all the words. Well, I’ve compiled the words to some of the new sports carols that can be sung on Christmas or any time during the holidays.

Here’s a copy of the words to some of the newest carols:

“Deck the Cameraman”

(Tune: Deck the Halls)

Ode to Kenny Rogers.

Deck the cam’ra man who films us.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

’Tis a new way Kenny can cuss us.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

Getting booked and then suspended.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

A second press guy is upended.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

See the blazing fastball fading.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

With it goes a bigger payday.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

Follow Rogers to retirement.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

Parting gifts are shoes of cement.

Fa la la la la la la la la.

“Dashing Through The Streets”

(Tune: Jingle Bells)

Ode to Kellen Winslow II

Dashing through the streets

On my Harley-Davidson

I turned into the lot

But I didn’t see the bump.

I made a quick right turn

Then slammed into a truck.

I flew into the air

Now I’m out six million bucks.

Oh, Jingle Bells, my knee swelled

The doctors went to work.

The Browns are out a tight end

And the fans thinks I’m a jerk.

“Milen the Lions GM”

(Tune: Frosty the Snowman)

Ode to Matt Milen

Milen the Lions GM, was a happy, cocky man

With a well-planned draft, a great coaching staff

The Lions were to contend.

Milen the Lions GM, wondered why his team would lose.

Harrington’s a bust, Rodgers just wasn’t tough.

And the defense struggled, too.


What happened to the magic, In that plan to fix the team?

After watching the results this year, it caused all the fans to march and scream.

Milen the Lions GM, fired Mariucci one Monday.

But the move was wrong, and it won’t be long

’Till he joins NFL Today.

“Joy To Philly”

(Tune: Joy to the World)

Ode to Terrell Owens

Joy to Philly, T.O. is gone!

The locker room is calm!

Said the Eagles had no class.

Told McNabb to kiss his brass.

Coach Reid just had enough

Said “clean out all your stuff.”

And his agent, his agent said next question.

“Hark! Palmeiro Now Has Sung

(Tune: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing)

Ode to Rafael Palmeiro

Hark! Palmeiro now has sung

That Tejada stuck his bum.

Thought it was vitamin B

Told Congress, “I’m drug free!”

Found steroids in his blood

Playing first base with ear plugs

A writers’ straw poll did proclaim

Not much chance of the Hall of Fame.

Hark! Now that Palmeiro’s sung

Looks like his career is done.

“We Four Vikings”

(Tune: We Three Kings)

Ode to the Minnesoa Vikings

We four Vikings went on a ship.

Told the girls on board to all strip.

Oh the joys with such strange toys.

Now our reputations are zip.


Oh, ooooh. Team immoral, team so lewd.

Daunte’s dancing, Smoot is crude.

Williams, McKinnie and girls dressed skimpy

Taking the field we’ll surely get booed.

Merry Christmas!
