Steve Earle's 'Nothing But a Child' is a gorgeous ballad about the birth of Christ and the miracle of birth in general.

I concur totally with the top two songs listed. Fairytale of New York and Father Christmas are the best. Others I like: Run Run Rudolph (or Run Rudolph Run) - Chuck Berry, or Bryan Adams version. Ye more »

I wish Lester well, I really do. And I think going to the Cubs was one of the least painful outcomes for the Sox. I don't think we even play the Cubs in the regular season the next few years.

Sabathia's original contract, which ran from 2009-2015, wouldn't have been so bad, but the contract had an opt-out after 3 years, and the Yanks ended up adding on another 2 years. Those opt-outs have more »
