Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas to my brother, Matthew Shelby

This goes out to my brother Matt serving in the Marine Corps away from his family on his birthday and Christmas in the Middle East. We love you, we're proud of you, and we want you to come home safe.

My brother loves Larry the Cable Guy. Here are some redneck Christmas carols...

This one goes out to my brother and all our men and women in the service:

My brother has a border-line unhealthy love affair with Garth Brooks. Here are a few Christmas offerings from Garth.

My brother has been a San Francisco 49ers fan since birth. Now since Matt has been alive, the 49ers have a record of 272-183-1 (2008 stats excluded) and have won 5 Super Bowls. We still have a healthy debate and rivalry between my Dallas Cowboys (also 5 Super Bowls). During Matt's life, the two teams have only faced 4 times in the playoffs, with each team winning twice. Whoever has won the matchup has gone on to win the Super Bowl that year. Joining the Marine Corps hasn't been good for Matt's status as a 49er fan. Since joining the Marines, the 49ers are 18-46 (2008 not included).

Here is a Frosty the Snowman rendition from current 49ers:

Since his high school days trying his best to look like Kurt Cobain, my brother has loved Nirvana. Here is a Christmas message from Nirvana.

And I am throwing this one in just to make my mom cry:

Are they having fun out there? Let a Marine explain how fun it is:
