Does Santa even know he's being tracked?

Or does this have something to do with the Panthers not putting their logo midfield like AK asked Santa for last christmas?

We have a special "Santa" Checklist ;)

Its really Cool for us because the News Station comes and films us at work "Tracking Santa"... Fun for the Kids ;)

And pORN sHOP-- There is no money wasted on this. Its a service you get for free ;)

It all started way back in the 50's when a newspaper ran an add about calling in to find out about Santa Clause and where he was.

Well the # was one digit off. Some kid called in and a Colonel at NORAD got the phone call. He couldnt dare not break the kids heart so he acted like Santa, gave him some "HO-HO-HO's" and wished him a Merry Christmas.

Later they kept getting a ton of calls, then the Colonel has his folks pretend to "track Santa" and give reports on where he was.

Thus was born "Santa Tracking" by NORAD.

Its really cool for us, we have a PC based system we use now. We have Santa "symbology" that shows up on our screen, and displays his current position.

Awesome stuff for the kids :D

    • Unless we have to play Alabama, they don't seem scared :) Here again I'm not saying he isn't worthy of our pick.   I'm just not convinced he would have had much more success than Stewart did the past few years given identical situations.  Our issues are a little deeper than just who is running the ball.  
    • Oh, and while we're on the subject of white privileged men standing around rationalizing why immigration doesn't work.. What happened to that brief moment you actually found yourself being concerned with the plight of native Americans @NanuqoftheNorth? Or was that just for politics?
