Dwayne Wade Needs Normal Socks for Christmas | New Times Broward-Palm Beach


Ten Things We Want to Get Our South Florida Sports Stars for Christmas

Year-round our South Florida Sports stars bring us so much joy, so it's only right that during the holiday season we think of ways we could return the favor. This Christmas — if we could around their security teams — we have would love to give guys like Chris Bosh, Jaromir Jagr, Ryan Tannehill, and Jose Fernandez gifts that we feel would make their lives so much better. 

Some of our gift ideas are a little far-fetched, but nonetheless, these are what we would gift our sports heroes if money, and reality, were no object.
10. A better offensive line for Ryan Tannehill.
You think that is a Vine above, but that's actually real-time game film. Poor Ryan Tannehill was drafted by the Miami Dolphins then he haz a died. Every five seconds in the United States a Ryan Tannehill is sacked — this is the time of year to keep the less-fortunate in mind. 
9. A good dentist for Jaromir Jagr.
If you look into Jaromir Jagr's mouth long enough you will see people screaming for help. Jagr has helped bring smiles back to so many Florida Panther fans faces this season, it's only right that we hook him up with our cousin that graduated from Nova Southeastern University dental school so that he can get back his smile.
8.  Some normal socks for Dwyane Wade. Just a normal pair of socks.
We know you like socks that have planets or purple palm trees on them, but we feel like you could use some good old fashioned black socks, Dwyane. Wade makes us proud with his on the court play, it's what happens after he hits the showers and gets dressed that sometimes leaves us puzzled.

7. A home cooked meal for Justise Winslow.
Mr.Winslow has plenty of money, yet his favorite meal is still a peanut butter and jelly with jalapeños sandwich. Nah, bro. We'd like to have our mom cook him a good hot meal, one with character, not some fancy chef prepared meal.
