Twas the week before Christmas (and Hanukkah as well!)
I suddenly realized...I'M GOING TO HELL!
No shopping's been done, no cards have been sent
LET'S GET THINGS ROLLING....100%!!
So onto the Web, I cheerfully go
Aided by my cuppa ever-loving Joe
And from the Web, I merrily find....
DVDs for the youngest of sports minds....
For Rosie and Amelia, the young soccer fanatics:
I give to you "Gracie," go follow her dream...
and you too will play varsity soccer on an all-male team!
Now, on to Matthew, the baseball-loving boy
here's a movie that'll bring true joy...
"Air Bud, The Seventh-Inning Fetch"
Don't think that one's much of a stretch!
And now, on to Maggie, the blond teen-age queen
David Beckham's her idol, but don't make a scene
I got you a classic; a soccer sports tale
"Bend It Like Beckham," so beyond the pale!
And now on to Ryan, the blond angel's brother...
I give a movie that's just like none other...
Clint Eastwood's "Invictus" a South African tale
of World Cup, Mandela and a dream that set sail
On to my sis, who gives me great joy...
I'm prouder of her than if she was a boy!
We've always been close, but there's a tradition
we've never stopped being in competition!
But that shouldn't be a reason to moan...
let's just curl up and watch "A League of their Own!"
On to my parents, a sweet inspiration
Hard work and love, the firmest foundation
To them, I give a special oblation...
"Seabiscuit," the horse that inspired
a whole generation!
And all is complete for Christmas today...
My family is done, and now, so am I!
Merry Christmas to all...
and to all...
A good night!
