Middlesbrough FC’s Holiday Card is… Festive


Image via the dailymail/ Middlesbrough FC

Frankly, we’ve been rendered speechless by this festive seasonal image of insanity. Is this meant to be ironic? It’s like a Hamley’s window designed by Liberace-inspired elves on crack.  It’s fantabulously awful, and we love it.

    Incredible. It has to be a fake. It just has to be. Mind you, wouldn't they send these cards out to season ticket holders to act like they care whether the season ticket people have a Merry Christmas as long as they keep coming to the matches? If that card is real, other teams should do something similar. Although I'm kind of on a one woman mission to get enough people to agree that the Anfield Rap should be ressurected with the current team for Comic Relief or some other charity…

    I’ve decided to not look at that close up, because if I do, the fabulousness of it will kill me.

    Love It . Love It. Love It.

    I actually love it. At least it's intentionally tacky. We have family friends who have a family Christmas portrait done every year and it is then made into Christmas cards and sent out to long-suffering people like us! They think it's the classiest thing ever, when it just makes us cringe.

    *Snorts and saves the picture* I'm fairly sure that picture is going on my desktop for the holidays… oh my Lord. Too funny. And I'm with Mandanicole – I think it should be mandatory that every team have one. Those are effing great.
