We’re closing in on the big day, and our 12 Days of Christmas special is still going strong.

Instead of using gifts, we’re using GIFS. You know, those animated clips that highlight the best few seconds of a video. The sports world was filled with dramatic, painful and humorous GIFS this year, and we’ll unveil one new GIF every day between now and Christmas.

Only two GIFS remain before we introduce our favorite on Christmas day. Hint: It has a little something to do with butterflies.

Let's try and come up with yet another witty jingle for today's post.

On the 10th day of Christmas the sports world gave to me, the Yankees giving us laughs for free.

That is a man who may one day be in the Hall of Fame, Andy Pettitte. He has racked up 256 wins, nearly 2,500 strikeouts, and throwing a baseball is still tough sometimes.

We think the moving picture would be funny regardless of who it happened to, but the fact that it's a man in pinstripes definitely doesn't hurt.

Installment 11 tomorrow.
