Merry Christmas – with a Little Letterman Tradition

For 12 years, on his last show before Christmas, David Letterman has Jay Thomas on to throw a football to knock the meatball off the top of the Late Show Christmas Tree.  And for 17 years, Letterman has invited Darlene Love to sing “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”. (They were both on last night).  Like many, I love to see these each year.  By the way, Darlene Love was just elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and will be inducted in 2011.

In addition, Jay Thomas tells this amazing story about a small car crash, and the Lone Ranger coming to his aid.  It’s a great story.

So, here they are (from earlier years on the Letterman Show).  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year.

(I’ll be back to blogging a little — or a lot — next week, and more often after January 1).
