    What's your favorite gift you got this year? For me, obviously my healthy, beautiful daughter.

    But otherwise, it's two books: "The Best American Sports Writing of the Century" and David Foster Wallace's "Consider the Lobster." I can't wait to dive into both.

    Best: The trip to NYC the Mrs. and I have been saving for.

    Worst: $50 gift certificate to Olive Garden from my brother, of all people.

    Haven't gotten anything.

    Edit: Moddy's holiday CD (though it's the only thing I got).

    Finally got Rosenberg's book, War as They Knew it. Tied with my Buffalo Wild Wings gift card as best gift of '08

    My best Christmas ever in terms of gifts. Each member of my family came up major aces. Details to come.

    Knowing that I'm still alive and I have great family and wonderful friends.

    Plus, the memories of good times this year help mitigate the difficult times so many of us are living in.

    Definitely the autographed hats by my two favorite NASCAR drivers from my darling secret santa. Thanks again, SS!

    Man, ducky, that SS must be a peach. :D

    Mine is either the scent sampler from Sephora (10 perfume samples, 1 ounce each, and a certificate for a free full-sized one) or the great tourmaline hair straightener my dad got me. Well, he kind of got it for me.

    After finally giving up on asking for what I really wanted, I got it ... a Leafs jersey! I love you, JR.

    Best was actually from the daughter: two nights at a casino hotel and a little gambling money.

    Best: Five $20 bills in an envelope. :D

    Worst: Really, there are no bad Christmas presents.

    Since I bought an iPhone for myself last week, I'll go with the "Yard of Beef."

    It's, um, a girthy hunk of summer sausage that's something like 5,500 calories if I ate the thing in one sitting.

    No lie. Then again, I suppose you can't go wrong with any food product that doubles as a gag holiday gift/lethal weapon.
