Fans of the Memphis Grizzlies have gotten spoiled quickly. We went from PLEASE MAKE THE PLAYOFFS to PLEASE WIN A PLAYOFF GAME to WIN A DAMN TITLE! I can’t say this process happened overnight, but it’s amazing how the darkness of the bad memories fades when the present potential seems so overwhelmingly bright.

This is a busy time of year for everyone but as we all gather with our families many of us will be watching our favorite Christmas movies. I’ve decided to take a few minutes to share with you my top 12 Christmas movies. Let me know what you think I missed. Unless you think I missed A Christmas Story. Because I didn’t. And you deserve coal. My one real major internal debate was over whether I was allowed to put Die Hard on this list.
