One of America's most prominent and personable politicians shares his mischievous side in a heartwarming story of a childhood Christmas.

Mike is desperate to get a football for Christmas. Then one day in the middle of December, a box that looks the exact right size appears under his family's Christmas tree. Mike just can't handle the temptation! He convinces his sister Pat that they should open their gifts and play with them THIS INSTANT. And that's what they do.

But on Christmas morning, the muddy football gives them away. After talking about the real meaning of Christmas and how some things are worth waiting for, Mike and Pat learn the benefit of patience, making the following Christmas more delightful than ever.
