Aw NFL Naw: I’m On A Multifaith Holiday Break Spectacular (Week 16)

Hello Dog Pals, I’m currently in the process of traveling to Regina for a multifaith holiday break spectacular. As a result, there will be no Aw NFL Naw this week. You can easily create a substitute column out of swears, quarterback names and pop culture curios you have laying around your house. Or you can just tweet me concerning an NFL-based issue and I will respond promptly and provide some sort of convoluted reference to the show Pepper Ann. In the place of hardhitting football talk, please accept this So So Def remix of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”.

Is this the best Christmas song of all time? Feel free to discuss the issue in the comments or write your MP about it. If you have a good MP, he or she will reply with: “No, “This Christmas” by Donny Hathaway is clearly the best Christmas tune to ever grace the Earth. You’re silly to think otherwise.”

  1. Ya John Lennon’s , “so this is xmas” can’t touch this, wtf was he thinking???

    364 days and subtracting to 2112, 2012.

    Happy Solstice!!

    Baby Jdogg was born on 0000/04/Jan, according to some old school calender.
    But who really cares about somewhat suspect facts? As long as it ain’t on a Pagan / Wiccan date, all is fine.

    Buy Canadian stuff only on the 26th!

  2. “You can easily create a substitute column out of swears, quarterback names and pop culture curios you have laying around your house.”

    Yes, we could, Dan.
    But it wouldn’t be the same somehow.

  3. You are far too kind. I’ll have the column set for Week 17. I have a clumsy Northern Exposure/49ers analogy dying to get out.

  4. It’s the early upsets that make tournament competition so thrilling, Dan.
    Don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for “Mele Kalikimaka” versus “Feliz Navidad”.

  5. “Northern Exposure/49ers”
    Hey — I saw that episode!!
    p.s. I never imagined Janine Turner would go from such a cleverly written series to the formulaic Body of Proof.

  6. Thanks, Dan.
    By the way … that clown Ron, from the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo post — “Overly pierced ( nostril hoops? really )/ tatted women ( images of death, and sparrows?) don’t turn me” — I bet Janine Turner would turn him on.

  7. Re: “Nick, as a ShowBits veteran, what would you recommend for a holiday playlist?”

    I’m asked that question quite frequently, Dan. Here’s the answer. And remember, lists are arbitrary. Enjoy these films in any order you choose.

    1. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
    2. Silent Night, Deadly Night
    3. Jingle All the Way
    4. Jack Frost
    5. Santa With Muscles
    6. Ernest Saves Christmas
    7. Home Alone 3
    8. Deck the Halls
    9. Surviving Christmas
    10. Christmas With the Kranks

  8. If memory serves, Santa With Muscles is a shot for shot remake of The Magnificent Ambersons, missing footage included. (The missing footage being the Santa With Muscles part.)

  9. Right you are, Dan. The Magnificent Ambersons is, indeed, Santa With Muscles without the muscles. Orson Welles was offended by muscles, for some reason.
