Christmas comes early

With apologies to singer Andy Williams and song writers Edward Pola and George Wyle, I could not resist attempting the following:

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With Federer playing
And everyone yelling “Football is here”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those wild card races and Raphael’s aces
And Giancarlo smacking long balls
It’s the hap-happiest season of all

There’s Happy Valley tailgating
NFL openers waiting
And ‘Bama on yet another roll

There are Indians soaring
Venus Williams roaring
And Notre Dame seeking a bowl

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be more Brady magic
And losses termed tragic
And sorrows to drown with beer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

There’ll be Judge’s swings and misses
And Eagles fans wishes
And Eli trying his best

There’ll be Terrible Towels waving
And talk of point shaving
And Dodgers winning the west

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
Aaron Rodgers will be dancing
Dak Prescott prancing
As the World Series draws near
It’s the most wonderful time

It’s the most wonderful time

It’s the most wonderful time

Of the year!
