View Full Version : Twas the night before Christmas

When all through the Digest
Not a person was debating, which center was best.

The Pennants were hung by the servers with care
In hopes that the playoffs soon would be there;

Uncle Buck was nestled all snug in his bed
With visions of fronting the post dancing in his head;
Hicks in his hoodie and Gnome in his pimp hat
Had just settled down for a long Pacers rap;
When out on the main page there rose such a clatter,
Hicks sprang into action to see what was the matter
Away using windows he flew like the flash
Jumping into action almost falling on his @ss
Moving so fast, away he did bound
Not even noticing he hit avoidingtheclown.
The glow from his monitor showing over his head
He began to wonder was the trouble JayRedd
When what to his bloodshot eyes did appear

But a miniature calculator and 8 bottles of beer
With a +/- check sheet in one hand and hops on his breath
He knew right away this was naptown seth
More rapid than Iverson, his statistics they came
He pointed and shouted and yelled at the members by name
Now, Kegboy! Now, Grace! Now, Bball and Able!
On, Magic Rat! On, Aceace! On, Elgin and Stanko!
Add minutes and rebounds and points do not stall
Now calculate, calculate, and calculate all
The dry heaves that come before the vomit does fly
Started to happen as Hicks began to cry
So on to the screen the statistics they all flew
Hicks turned green and started to spew

And then, in a twinkling, The E street band started to play
Everybody new that this must be Jay
As Magic Rat was dropping his calculator to boogie down
Into the chat room Jay came with a bound
He was dressed in throw backs from toe to his head
Lord Helmet was envious and LoneGranger was filled with dread
A bundle of knowledge he threw this and that
He sounded like a rapper slinging his smack
His knowledge was simple, his use of stats it varied
Rick Carlisle was gone and for that he thanked Larry
His droll little thoughts they started to grow
Why are we worried about stats I’ll ask U.B. he’ll know
Statistics they matter, said Seth through his teeth
Smoke coming from his ears circling his head like a wreath
His broadband was working and nothing was ailing’
So up from the south swooped in Will Galen
I find statistics just fine, I don’t read yours, and I use only mine
Hicks laughed when he read this in spite of himself
A winking smilie from Seth and a nod of his head
Soon showed Hicks he had nothing to dread
He spoke not a word but went straight to his work
He pulled all of the pennants and called Larry a jerk
Giving the middle finger to Jay’s picture of Rose
He laughed and proclaimed and started pointing at his nose.
I knew it; I knew it he wrote over and over
While everyone on the digest went ducking for cover

He was read to exclaim as he posted all night

“Steven Jackson is the man; I told you I’m right”

My most sincere apologies to Clement Clarke Moore
