This article is more than 12 years old.

Listen carefully.  Just beneath the jingle of the bells and the jolly carolers begging lustily for figgy pudding, are those the mid-December strains of anxiety, desperation, and panic?

Don’t cover your ears!  There’s hope, even now, as the days before the holidays dwindle down to a precious few.  Assuming some of the people for whom you have not yet found gifts are sports fans, the 16th Annual Only A Game Holiday Gift Guide is just what you’ve been waiting for.

If you’re feeling charitable toward four-legged critters this holiday season, you might want to send someone on your list a bottle of wine or two from the Vicktory Dogs Wine Collection.  Proceeds from each bottle benefit the dogs that were rescued from Michael Vick’s Bad Newz Kennels and fund Buddy Dog, an organization working to eliminate dog fighting.  The wine comes adorned with images of 22 different dogs, including Emily, but Fleet Hamilton of the Dog Lovers Wine Club says all the wines are the same on the inside.
