    'Twas the week before Coachmas, and in Balch Fieldhouse
    Rumors were stirring, after numerous routs
    The pennants were hung from the rafters with care
    In hopes that St. Shanahan soon would be there

    Allbuffs busy posting speculative threads
    While visions of title-games danced in their heads
    Donning official Buff sweaters and caps
    Resting heads on their keyboards for occasional naps

    From the Blogosphere there arose such a clatter
    Scanned footballcoachscoop.com for some info that mattered
    Ignored the formatting (They never heard of Flash?)
    Checked to see if Bohn had done anything rash

    Understandably, Buff fans, after all of their woes
    Viewed innuendos with a Buff-colored glow
    And what to our wondering eyes did appear?
    The Shanahan Dynasty seemed to be near

    A change is a coming - quick as you can say 'hike'
    And by golly, that 'change' turned out to be St. Mike
    Riding Ralphie down Pearl St. (in a blizzard) he came
    Calling out all of his A.C.'s by name

    "Come David Gibbs, Alex Gibbs, (Barry Gibb too)!"
    "Come Embree, Bieniemy, Elway and Kubs!"
    "To the top of the polls! Buffaloes stand stand tall!"
    "Respect my authoritah, and we'll p'own them all!"

    Swifter than Phil Savoy running a 'fly'
    They saddled unicorns and took to the sky
    O'er the top of the Packer Cafe they did flew
    They flew over everything (Trumbo Fountain, too)

    They stopped at the Fieldhouse, alit on the roof
    The unicorns stumbling, and splaying their hoofs
    I ran into Balch to see what had gone down
    Through the roof access, Shanny Claus leaped with a bound!

    He was dressed all in fur from his feet to his head
    (So I checked to be sure Ralphie V wasn't dead)
    Three Super Bowl Rings, displayed on his fingers
    (At this point I've pretty well run out of zingers)

    His rings, how they twinkled! Never seen so much bling!
    Their luster convinced me. Bohn had done the right thing!
    His jaw jutting forward, brows all a-furrowed
    (Non-sequitur reference to Edward R Murrow...)

    Wearing a Black-and-Gold headset, and gritting his teeth
    Through the tan of his forehead, veins bulged underneath
    I offered him a sandwich of PB and jelly
    (The latter of which reminds him of Kardashian's belly)

    I told him he looked like a maniacal elf!
    (Then he glared at me hard, and I piddled myself...)
    But a wink of an eye, and a twist of his head
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread

    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
    He hung the depth charts, and returned with a jerk
    He shot me the finger, and then thumbed his nose
    Mooned me, then back through the access he rose

    Sprang to his unicorn, to the team gave a whistle
    From that day on, they could all fly like missiles
    I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight
    Happy Coachmas to Allbuffs! And to Allbuffs good night!

    Excellent Job except its Shanahan not Shannahan. Or maybe St. Shanny in a shortened version.

    Sorry not trying to police or be a tool just wanted to point it out!

    Like I said it was AWESOME and maybe I should have reiterated that more. So I am sorry. I primarily post at orangemane.com and that was always brought up there.

    Again please don't take offense because it was really an awesome post.
