Spreading Holiday Cheer


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.
