SBD/December 21, 2012/Year End

THE DAILY Presents Our Annual Sports Business Holiday Carol

THE DAILY presents our annual holiday carol reviewing the year in sports business, and with '12 coming to a close, this year's version is fittingly set to the tune of "12 Days Of Christmas." Content-wise, this carol is one of the shortest in the holiday repertoire, so we are offering up two versions to choose from.

On the 2012th year of Christmas, I read in SBD
12-player Marlins trade,
11 FBS schools selling beer,
10-team Big 12,
Nine-figure Seattle arena deal,
Eight Saints suspended,
Seven Tour de France titles tainted,
Six-year Bud-MLB renewal,
Five London Olympic Rings!
Four-team BCS playoff,
Three decades of David Stern,
Two NBA teams in N.Y.
And a locked-out hockey league.

On the 2012th year of Christmas, I read in SBD
12% college football coach pay increase,
11 years of Zuffa owning UFC,
10% of ManU floated,
Niners breaking ground on stadium,
Eight-year NASCAR rights extension,
Seventh Giants World Series title,
Six more medals for Phelps,
Five rookie starting QBs!
Four Jaguars games in London
Three weeks of replacement refs
Two-billion-dollar sale of Dodgers
And a new owner for the Grizzlies.
