Ho, ho, ho. They say it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas, which it is, but even more than that it is sounding a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go.
Christmas is special for a lot of reasons and the music ranks up there with family, gift giving and celebrating the birth of Christ.
From “Silent Night” to “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth,” it is all you have heard no matter where you were for the past month, and we can’t allow Christmas morning to go by without our own Mountaineer versions of Christmas songs.
So here’s a present you don’t have to unwrap.
Have a Merry Christmas!
“Ollie Luck’s Not Comin’ To Town”
To the tune of “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town”
You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout, I’m telling you why. Ollie Luck’s not coming to town. He’s making a fist, Banging it twice; Took a chance and rolled the dice. Ollie Luck’s not coming to town.
He thought he would go creeping, Into Texas, for goodness sake. But they said ‘No way, Ollie.’ Our A.D. you won’t make, so ...
You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout, I’m telling you why. Ollie Luck’s not coming to town.

I’m dreaming of a good football team
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the stands are rocking
The linemen blocking
For backs always on the go, you know.
I’m dreaming of a strong defense
Which tackles runners left and right
May your wins come every day and night
And may you have
A season out of sight.
