I’ve always wondered what professional athletes put on their wish lists for Christmas, especially the ones with a large contract. After all, having millions or even just tens of thousands of dollars at your disposal can pretty much buy you whatever you want. Fortunately, I have managed to put my curiosity to rest this week.
Through some careful reconnaissance work, I was able to secure a sampling of items that various Green Bay Packers players and coaches have put on their Christmas lists this year. And in the spirit of giving, I have decided to share the findings with you.
So without any further ado, I present to you the 2011 Green Bay Packers Christmas Wish List:
Aaron Rodgers – “Defensive Cookbook: The NFL’s Top 10 Recipes For Stopping High-Powered Offenses”
Ryan Grant – 20 carries in a single game
James Starks – Black reflective sunglasses, a trenchcoat, and the red pill
Randall Cobb – Percy Harvin’s Playbook
Donald Driver – New publishing deal for a fourth book, “Quickie Wins His Second Championship”
Jordy Nelson – “White Men Can’t Jump” (DVD)
Jermichael Finley – Prototype for Mueller’s new brand of “Traceless Stickum”
Tom Crabtree – The Foo Fighters to get back together
Andrew Quarless – One more shot on Jared Allen
