For NBC: An eternity of flexible scheduling.
For Fox and CBS: An end to flexible scheduling.( Santa can make it work for everyone, OK?)
For Jason Garrett: A shot at being an NFL offensive coordinator. (The former good-guy Cowboys backup quarterback must have served his time as quarterbacks coach in Miami under Nick Saban.)
For Cowboys' scouting director Jeff Ireland: A way for Georgia Tech receiver Calvin Johnson to fall into his lap on draft day.
For Randy Galloway: His own bail bond franchise.
Wait, wait, I thought of something for Aikman: A win for his (and Roger Staubach's) NASCAR entry. That he doesn't have!
For all reporters and photographers at Parcells' news conferences: Cell phones that automatically mute.
For Terence Newman, Anthony Henry and Aaron Glenn: See DeMarcus Ware above. Nothing makes a corner's day like a pass rush.
For Marcus Spears and Chris Canty: A chance to play in a 4-3 again.
For Peyton Manning: That Super Bowl trip so everyone will quit asking you when it's coming.
For Eli Manning: A chance to re-think that whole "no to San Diego" thing.
For Terrell Owens: Inner peace. And a spit-guard for his face mask.
For Marc Colombo: A contractual reward for his hard work.
For Miles Austin: Breaking a long one.
For the Houston Texans: A do-over.
For FC Dallas, the Mavericks, the Chicago Cubs, Manchester United and the Missouri Tigers: Championships. (Hey, it's my list. Make your own if you don't like it.)
For all our children: The perspective to remember that the one with the most toys doesn't always win, even if it seems that way.
For Cowboys fans everywhere: Oh, you know!
Have a happy, joyful and peaceful holiday. That's a gift we can all give ourselves.
