“Merry Christmas In The NFL” Was A Minor Hit In 1980
Below, we have the somewhat catchy song "Merry Christmas In The NFL".
The song, which grows on you, was done in 1980, and performed by Willis The Guard and Vigorish, a/k/a Jerry Buckner and Gary Garcia, who later did “Pac Man Fever”.
Howard Cosell found the lyrics offensive, going so far as to try to get radio stations to restrict it's air play, but still reached #82 on the Billboard charts.
Not a hit, but a song many NFL fans back in 1980 will remember.
