A former colleague who works in Philadelphia, sports writer Frank Fitzpatrick, devoted a recent column to some cleverly mischievous renditions of holiday favorites, one of which is particularly timely considering tomorrow's game between New England and the New York Giants with the Patriots going for a 16-0 regular-season record.
Here's the first few lines of Fitzpatrick's satire of Pats coach Bill Belichick.
