The holiday season is upon us, and that means it’s my favorite time of the year: the time when athletes come together to wear Santa hats and awkwardly sing public domain Christmas carols against a green screen like somebody’s holding a gun to their head.
Athlete Christmas carol viral videos are the best. Last year we had NBA stars singing ‘Jingle Bells,’ Brittney Palmer talk-singing the ‘12 Days Of MMA Christmas’ and an unfortunately not-perverted ‘Fist In A Box’ among them. The Dallas Mavericks murmured their way through Sleigh Ride, and this year the New York Mets get that honor. And BOY, do they HATE IT.
Well, except for David Wright, he seems to be having a great time. Travis d’Arnaud looks like he’s seconds away from committing suicide, and Dillon Gee looks like he might’ve just gone blind, and sounds like he might’ve just gone deaf. MERRY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE.
