Before we begin let me wish both Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to appease both sides of the issue. Last year's team on Christmas was the most appropriate team for the holiday, the Angels. This year it is the team that looks probably the least Christmas-y, the New York Mets. It's nothing personal against the Mets, but their blue and orange color scheme is almost the exact opposite of Christmas colors. There really isn't a team that looks really Christmas-like, although the White Sox could probably patch together a Christmas look from their many past color schemes. Before I ramble on anymore let's take a look at some team trivia for the Mets.
