The most depressing baseball-related Christmas song ever

Dec 24, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

Halladay Jays

It’s actually kinda jumpy in a western swing sort of way, but this song by Canadian country singer Gord Bramford is mostly sad. Why? Because all the little boy in the video wants is a baseball glove autographed by Roy Halladay. The same Roy Halladay of whom he has a poster on the wall of his bedroom pictured in his Blue Jays uniform. This song came out about two weeks before Halladay was traded away to Philly last year, so all this kid got for Christmas was heartache. And Kyle Drabek.  Bamford and Halladay talk about the song over at MLB.com today.

Note to Bramford: re-do the song and change the lyric to “Ricky Romero.” Oh, and while you’re changing lyrics, get rid of that “mama wants a tummy tuck” line. It’s just awful. And based on the video, she doesn’t need one, even if the dad needs some freakin’ sensitivity training.

In other news, there is not a lot of baseball news on Christmas Eve.

    The depressing part is someone actually hit record.

      All thinly veiled pagan descent-and-resurrection myth holiday music is depressing. Especially when you’re stuck in an elevator and you have to listen to Bing Crosby over and over again.
