Tale of the tape

Andre Johnson Vs. Santa Claus: How Does He Match Up To St. Nick?

Fantasy wunderkind and all-around decent guy Andre Johnson just did something pretty nifty. He purchased over $17,000 worth of toys for children in Child Protective Services. It’s an awfully kind gesture, especially during the holiday season. But how does Johnson stack up against the ultimate gift giver, Santa Claus? Let’s go to the tape:

Miami Dolphins v Houston Texans Macy's Hosts Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade In New York City

Andre Johnson

Santa Claus

4.41 Seconds 40 Time? I mean...one estimate has St. Nick traveling at roughly 5.6 million miles per hour (in order to deliver all those presents) so...whatever 40 yards of that is. A blink, essentially.
A svelte 227 pounds. Weight? Probably more than that.
5 this year (really? That feels low). 61 overall (that too). Receiving TDs this year? None?
$17,352 Estimated value of Presents Millions and millions
Yep! Is he real? Who’s asking? Where are your parents?
...I’M GONNA BE RICH! Reaction to seeing mommy kissing him? Set it to a song!
Stranger! I’m calling the police right now. Reaction when you hear him “Up on a rooftop, click-click-click”ing? Weeeeeeee! Presents!

The winner is

Miami Dolphins v Houston Texans
Andre Johnson
4 out of 7

So there you have it. After a hard-fought battle of joyful giving, Andre Johnson takes the round 3-2! And rightly so. What a terrific fella.
