When is a tree more than a tree?

Charlie Brownja!
When the tree’s being held in esteem by wide receiver Brandon Marshall (#15, Bears) of course.  With a Charlie Brown Christmas tree resting on the podium, here’s some of what he said:

Right now, metaphorically, our season looks like this tree right now where we’re standing. Barren. Ugly. But there’s still hope. As a kid, it doesn’t matter how your Christmas tree looks. You’re still waiting for Christmas Day. You still have hopes and dreams that Santa’s going to bring you those things you ask for. It’s always a possibility.

 
Where we stand today, our goal is to win the NFC championship, beat the Green Bay Packers, win the Super Bowl. All of that still can be under this Christmas tree. Whenever you’re down, you’ve got to try to create some type of balance, so this is a perfect little thing for me to keep me going.

 

Now that’s one of the top five Christmas stories out there.
If awesome speeches were a category in my fantasy league, someone would have 50 points before anyone took the field this week!
