Dave Wannstedt was a longtime NFL and college coach, with stops in charge of the Bears, Dolphins, and Pitt Panthers. He’s now a FOX studio analyst, which makes sense given his resume. What doesn’t make sense: Wannstedt leading a three-part harmony (sort of) version of “Silent Night”, but that’s what we got today.
That was thanks to Chicago sports radio hosts Danny Parkins and Dan McNeil, on their 670 The Score show McNeil & Parkins. That’s probably more setup than you really needed, so let’s just watch the video and enjoy:

Did we need this? No. Are we better off with it existing? Also hard to say. But damn it if it’s not endearing.
