Myles Garrett-Mason Rudolph brawl inspires Xmas tree topper

It certainly doesn’t celebrate the traditional themes of the holiday season, but an NFL fan nevertheless earns high marks in creativity for designing a tree topper inspired by the brawl between Myles Garrett and Mason Rudolph.

The unique tree topper in question is of course inspired by the infamous incident that occurred in a Week 11 showdown between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.

In front of a national TV audience on “Thursday Night Football, the confrontation between the Browns defensive end and Steelers quarterback is arguably among the ugliest on-field incidents in NFL history given Garrett brandished Rudolph’s helmet as a weapon.

Making the tree topper even more impressive — and perhaps a tad more disturbing — is how it’s motorized. That way, Garrett’s widely condemned act of ripping off Rudolph’s helmet and hitting the Steelers quarterback in the head with it is showcased in all its Bizarro World Christmas holidays glory.

The creation of Seattle, Wash., resident Steve Schneider, the tree topper also features a Steelers player — likely offensive lineman David DeCastro — and an official throwing a flag, adding even more detail to the piece.

Why Schneider opted to immortalize such an ugly incident in tree topper form is uncertain, as he’s not surprisingly a Seahawks fan. Perhaps the stresses of the holiday season are already starting to overwhelm the poor guy and the tree topper somehow provides him some semblance of peace and joy.
