“NFL Holiday Spectacular” to Air Christmas Day on CBS Sports
Intersport and NFL Films Team Up To Showcase Funny and Unforgettable Winter NFL Moments
[Dec. 20, 2011] CHICAGO – “NFL Holiday Spectacular” is a one-hour television event airing at 3 p.m. ET Sunday, Dec. 25, on CBS Sports. The Christmas Day program, which is produced by Intersport and NFL Films, features memorable and historic NFL moments that capture the holiday spirit. “NFL Holiday Spectacular” provides viewers with their football fill on a Sunday afternoon void of NFL action (Bears-Packers game time is 8:20 PM ET).
Ian Petrella, the beloved character “Randy” from the classic holiday movie “A Christmas Story,” guides the audience on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Viewers will be treated to classic sound bytes from coaches and players, such as Tony Dungy, Devin Hester, Herm Edwards, Joe Flacco and Tim Tebow; a look back at the greatest wintry moments in NFL history; countdowns of the best and worst holiday greeting cards; and the items that top players’ and coaches’ holiday wish lists.
