Barbara Farris Plays Santa
If Shock forward Barb Farris were given Santa’s powers to grant gifts and wishes, this is what she would give each of her teammates for Christmas:
I would give her an obnoxious piece of diamond jewelry. Something like Kobe Bryant’s wife got.
I would get her a big monster truck. I don’t know why, but that just seems like a car that would fit her personality. She could just run over people.
I would get her an entire set of Louis Vatton Luggage just because she’s always going somewhere.
Cheryl would get a new Nextel phone. I know she’s frustrated with the one that she has. It has color and everything but every time I see her she says it’s dropping calls so I would get her the newer one. Maybe it doesn’t drop as many calls.
I would give Ruth a month of vacation at home, because she’s never able to go home.
She lives in New Orleans now, and I know she wants to stay in New Orleans, so I would get her a big house on St. Charles.
I would get her unlimited Air Force Ones. She buys so many shoes. I would just give her the entire new lineup before they even came out.
I would get her a lifetime supply of the cookies given out on Delta Airlines, but I can’t remember the name right now.
I would get Stacy some twenty-fours (rims) for her new car. She got a new truck and I would get her some big, obnoxious rims. She probably wouldn’t like them, but it’s a new car and she can have them.
I would get her first-class seats for when she flies from Detroit to Hungary, because coach is ridiculous when you’re flying to Europe.
Unlimited Abercrombie gift certificates. She wears a lot of Abercrombie.
I would get her whatever she needs from Babies-R-Us. She has three babies. That’s a lot of babies.
Coach Bill Laimbeer:
I would give him a break from one of his million jobs. He has about five jobs so he would get a much-needed vacation.
