If any college basketball fan base is going to shamelessly create Christmas carol parodies based on its team, it’s Kentucky’s.
In their annual Christmas card collection, posted as a YouTube video on Tuesday, Kentucky Sports Radio included a clip of a fan singing a “First Noel” parody in which “Nerlens Noel” is substituted for the name of the original song. It is … quite special.
We’ll give the fan credit for taking the tune of the song and coming up with clever lyrics to describe how the Wildcats’ freshman center is likely a one-and-done player. Still, he apparently has way too much time on his hands.
