Teixeira under the tree?

You probably don’t care about the beatdown Georgia Tech’s triple option handed Miami last night, but the broadcast, at least at one point, likely would have piqued your interest.

Mark Teixeira attended the game, watching from the sidelines with fellow free agent and Scott Boras client Jason Varitek. ESPN’s Erin Andrews chatted with Teixeira, who said his hope is to choose a team and sign a contract by Christmas.

“I don’t want to put a timetable on it, but Christmas morning,” said Teixeira, who, like Varitek, was an All-American at Georgia Tech. “I want to know where I’m going to be for the next couple of years, so hopefully, by Christmas it will be done.”

“I want to go where I can win and my family is happy,” Teixeira said. “Whether it’s the East Coast — that’s where I’m from — but I loved playing in Anaheim, too, so we’ll see what happens.”
