I've never been accused of being a superstar lyricist, but even I can conclude without a shadow of a doubt that "RG3" rhymes with "Christmas tree." 

And so this fall and winter, when Robert Griffin III became the most famous and beloved Washington resident since Lincoln, it was only a matter of time before some clever D.C.-area music teacher penned a RG3 remix of the centuries old Christmas carol O Christmas Tree.

I can't handle Christmas carols and can't for the life of me understand how people listen to Christmas-themed music for the entire month of December, but this has just shot up to the No. 1 spot on Brad's List of Favorite Holiday Tunes. Just awaiting the MP3 download link so that I can load it onto my iPod. 

I'm only half-kidding, because that line taking a shot at Andrew Luck is pretty golden. That's the Christmas spirit, kids! 

Believe it or not, though, this isn't the first time Griffin has made it into a re-worked Christmas song...
