Is a reference to “Wounded Knee” really advisable in a song related to a team called the Redskins? I would advise against it. But the teacher of these kids obviously did not, and so the lyrics flew through. The result was the reworked Christmas carol: “Oh RGII”, an ode to Robert Griffin III sung to the tune of “Oh Christmas Tree” by this elementary school choir. Impressive.

Also note the gratuitous swipe at Andrew Luck: hardly seems in keeping with the Christmas spirit. But it’s all in good fun: a gift from Comcast SportsNet Washington to all of us. God bless us, every one.
