Via intrepid reader Michael Reis comes the following bit of holiday lore, with the portion relevant to this readership’s interest in bold:
I recently came into possession of 1977’s classic Christmas in Saint Louis. It’s a collection of Christmas carols ... former cardinal baseball player Ted Simmons reading the Bible and also Dan Dierdorf singing We Wish You A Merry Christmas with his teammates.
... you know, when you think about it, Christmas Eve is the original SACK TIME, huh?
Happy holidays, y’all.
