    Default 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

    Good stuff.

    Here is another one.

    For some reason I think there was another one but for the life of me I can't remember it.

    Since this came during my hiatus, I'm not sure I've seen it before tonight.. Very nice.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
