Christmas Miracles [Sports Versions] and the Bear Bryant of College Rugby

Merry Christmas to you and yours from Robert, Micah and The Buckster!

NEW YORK, NYWhoa, Nellie! What a big day this is! In less than 24 hours it will be that once-a-year event that we look so forward to, the one in which we vest so much of ourselves… Boxing Day!!! See what I did there?! Just kidding of course (sort of). Merry Christmas to all that partake and Sensational Saturday to those that are going to a comedy club and ordering Chinese! But really, any day we get to spend time together talkin’ sports and pandemic theories is special, so let’s continue that happy trend with a sprinkling of holiday spice on today’s entrees: Christmas Miracles [Sports Versions] and the Bear Bryant of College Rugby.

Christmas Miracles [Sports Versions] #1

Buck Showalter realizes he must reinvent himself to:
A) Endear himself to Mets fans that loathe his being hired to skipper the Mets’ always-lilting ship (like me)
B) Overcome the reality that he has never actually won a World Series despite having had some great rosters.

To that end, The Buckster, as he will be referring to himself in 3rd person, will be growing out a Randy Johnson-esque mullet and Burt Reynolds ’70s mustache. Further, he’ll be dying both jet black in a you’re-not-fooling-anyone fashion, as per his idols, the late/great Robert Goulet and Englebert Humperdinck.

None of it will matter, as the team will win despite him, as his new persona absorbs all media attention, freeing a relieved team to just play baseball. This is all predicated on a positive outcome of the the Robbie Cano situation.

Christmas Miracles [Sports Versions] #2

Robinson Cano retires from baseball, effective January 22 of 2022. Ironically, he’s due $22,000,000.00 from the Mets but to help trigger a 3rd Mets’ title run, he miraculously eats the remaining fortune on his contract for the sake of the… wait for it… Miracle Mets.

Christmas Miracles [Sports Versions] #3

The NY Giants trade a #1 picks and cash for Kirk Cousins but then immediately/stunningly trade him to the Buffalo Bills for Josh Allen and 3 #1 picks in the next NFL draft!  This comes on the heals of Allen being sued by the Bills Mafia for permanently damaging one of their folding tables in a tail-gate table-dive… Oh, and the Jints ship Daniel Jones to the Cowboys for Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence.
