Several Washington players are really hoping Santa Claus is a Redskins fan, and Alfred Morris may have proven that it is, in fact, A Wonderful Life.
According to Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post, children at the Redskins’ community event at Macy’s on Tuesday had the chance to write letters to Saint Nick. For every letter to Santa turned in at their stores, Macy’s will donate $1, up to $1 million.
So naturally, some of the players got in on the action too.
Tight end Fred Davis asked for Power Rangers, Transformers, a Super Nintendo and a playoff berth, while Logan Paulsen asked for world peace, a puppy and a touchdown, in addition to a spot in the postseason.
But Morris’ letter was the clincher, the kind of thing you’d expect from a grateful sixth-rounder who is fourth in the league in rushing.
“Dear Santa,” Morris wrote. “I’m writing not to ask for a gift, but to ask you what you want for Christmas? You give every year and it’s your turn to receive, because it’s not always about receiving. Sincerely, Alfred Morris.”
Who doesn’t like this guy? And who wants to bet there’s no coal in his stocking, whether the Redskins make the playoffs or not?
