Holiday Music Countdown: “Bernie & the Boomer” (2006)

This was track #2 on the 2006 EP, and refers to Westwood One’s coverage of the Christmas Eve game between Tampa Bay & the Browns played in Cleveland when Marv Albert & Boomer Esiason were the radio team (and Bernie was still married).

It’s a parody of Dar Williams’ 1996 song “The Christians and the Pagans” though knowing that isn’t essential to appreciating “Bernie & the Boomer.”
