We all have a favorite Christmas gift that stands
out in our minds and comes to mind year after year bringing back the happy
feelings of that time gone by. With that theme in mind, we asked some
former Cutters to share with us their favorite Christmas gift of all-time.
Here are some of their responses, in their own
Carlos Alonso (2010) -
I got an early Christmas present this year and it quickly became my all-time
favorite; The Kindle e-reader from amazon, which stores hundreds of books on a
small portable reading device. This is my favorite gift because I
love to read and I am constantly traveling so it is very convenient.
Evan Porter (2009) - Last year I was with my family on Christmas morning,
when I got a call from former teammates Adam Buschini and Jeremy Barnes. They
both just called to say how much they missed me. Made me cry, and the Poppa
brought in a baby Golden Retriever puppy. She was the best Christmas gift a
family could ask for. It was the greatest Christmas morning in the history of
David Buchanan (2010) - I would have to say that my favorite Christmas gift
of all time was this really nice remote control car that cost about $300. My dad
got it for me when I was in middle school. The car would go about 45 miles an
hour. It came with off road tires and everything. I would race it at tracks,
jump it over jumps and everything! I still drive it today! I love it!
Matt McConnell (2010) - When I was 9 or 10, I got a throwback Ken Griffey
Jr. authentic jersey from my parents for Christmas. He was my favorite player
and think I still have it today.
Joe Blackburn (2008) -
My favorite Christmas
present would probably have to be the Macy's clothing box I got when I was about
7 or 8 that was filled with Ninja Turtle action figures. It doesn't seem like a
likely candidate, but it was because from then on I always had the hope that
when I opened a present that looked like it would be clothes, it could be
something better. Now-a-days, I'm fine with the boxes being filled with clothes
to great holiday memories and to creating even more with your family and friends
in 2010. Happy holidays Cutters fans!
