The FIU Christmas Song

Merry Christmas to all of our GPP readers. Thanks for your input and readership the past year and ever since this blog started in 2007.

It's that time of year again for the GPP's Christmas extravaganza. Although to some with their input regarding the past two GPP Christmas extravaganzas (Dec. 2007 & 2008) this might be a lump of coal.Nkc Well, then Bah, Humbug!

Still like St. Nick guiding his sleigh and reindeer through the northeastern snow, we press on undaunted to try and bring a little Christmas cheer to the blog.

The last two Christmases have featured: 12 Days of FIU Christmas and T'was the Night Before Christmas at FIU.

Now sit back and sing along with Nat King Cole the FIU version of The Christmas Song:

Chestnutt's soccer team roasting the Sun Belt on an open fire,

Rosa T.Y. scoring and Yarimar spiking never gets olde,

Ole, Ole carols being sung by a choir,

And folks dressed up in blue and gold.


Everybody knows a Turtle and two numero unos,

Help to make an FIU baseball season bright.

Golden Dazzlers with their outfits all aglows,Fiudaz

Will make everyone at FIU Stadium happier tonight.


They know that recruiting Santa's on his way;

He's loaded lots of wins and good players on his sleigh.

And every other team is going to spy,

Gpp fansTo see if FIU really knows how to fly.


And so I'm offering this simple phrase,

To GPP readers from one to ninety-two,

Although it's been said many times, many ways,

A very Merry Christmas to you

Merry Christmas everyone!!! Can't wait for the 2010 Football season to start! GO FIU!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! Can't wait to see what 2010 will bring!

AHHHH Pete! You had to add in the Ole Ole... hahahaha.

Thanks for everything you do for us!

wow, Urban Meyer stepping down as Head Footbal Coach after the Jan 1 Sugar Bowl....some fishy goin on. He's the 3rd coach to step down or leave.

What goes up must come down...Finally the beginning to the end of UF!!! Bye bye Tebow...Bye bye Meyer

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! Go Panthers!!

Happy Holidays everyone!


Tebow leaving broke Meyer's heart.....thats why he had chest pains after the Bama game....lmao

Guys let's be classier than some of the other people who frequent the Herald. Whether you liked UF or not, Urban Meyer is a great coach and must be dealing with something serious to step away from the game he loves. I wish Meyer a speedy recovery and hope that he can return to the game very soon.

I agree with Jules 110%. Let's show some heart for the guy. I hope whatever health issues he is dealing with will be resolved. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family...

Have you guys heard the rumblings that both Phil Galiano AND Bill Legg will not be back next season??? Is this official??

I dunno about the whole Meyer situation. Most of us never knew he had a disease in the first place. Tebow is leaving, practically zero starters are returning next year... If anything kudos for leaving at the top of his game, but the entire situation reeks of convenience, and fear of what's to come.

Besides, running up the score against us didn't win any respectable points with ANY of us. Randy Shannon - that was the TRUE definition of running up the score.


Pete why do you think Scott Bryant is so underappreciated? It is obvious that he's a phenominal player but just undersized... is that the reason or is it because he attends a smaller school? I think he deserves to be on the official 1st team defense in my own opinion.
