A Pitiful Saints Christmas In 2014

New, comments

Christmas time is famously known as "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year", but this Christmas for the Saints has been far more pitiful than wonderful.

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

More often than not, over the past nine years, the New Orleans Saints have spent Christmas preparing for the playoffs and contending for a run at the title.  2014?  Well, not so much.  Rather than playing the role of Santa Claus for Who Dat Nation, the Saints have been more a cross between Ebenezer Scrooge and The Grinch.  Well, just because we're not having much fun watching the Saints doesn't mean we can't have a little fun this Christmas singing about their pitiful season.

In honor of one of the all-time great Christmas classics, Andy Williams' 1963 hit song "It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year", Canal Street Chronicles presents the Saints' 2014 version.

"It's The Most Pitiful Time of the Year"

It's the most pitiful time of the year

At the TV you're yelling

While everyone's telling you, "Drink some more beer"

It's the most pitiful time of the year

This, the crap-crappiest season of all

With the victories fleeting, we're witnessing beatings

That have us appalled

In this crap-crappiest season of all

***

The linebackers were roasted

The corners were toasted

My God, did that whole defense blow

Yet we yearn for old stories

And tales of the glories

From Super Bowls five years ago

***

It's the most pitiful time of the year

So much liquor was flowing

Remote controls throwing

Had loved ones in fear

In this most pitiful time of the year

***

While the offense once coasted

This o-line was roasted

The age of the offense did show

Yet we yearn for old stories

And tales of the glories

From Super Bowls five years ago

***

It's the most pitiful time of the year

Though we all need consoling

The heads will be rolling

On Airline next year

It's the most pitiful time

Yes the most pitiful time

Oh the most pitiful time of the year!

***

Sing along with the classic here, and have a Merry Christmas, Who Dat Nation!
