Prepare yourself. You’ve never seen something quite like this.
In honor of Case Keenum’s stellar performance on Sunday for the Minnesota Vikings, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury tweeted out a Christmas card from their time together at the University of Houston.
It is … something. See for yourself here:
In honor of the holiday season and my guy @casekeenum7 (MVP) leading the Vikings to the NFC North title today, here is the 2011 UH QB Christmas card for your viewing pleasure. #merryxmas #Skol #WreckEm pic.twitter.com/euW3nahstC

The people pictured are Keenum, Kingsbury, Drew Piland, Cotton Turner, Drew Hollingshead, Crawford Jones and future TCU hero Bram Kohlhausen. Trying to identify who is who is a near-fruitless task, unless you have in-depth knowledge of the Houston QB roster in 2011. Even with the headshots available on the Houston website, we still weren’t sure on a couple of players. But Kingsbury’s famous good looks are easy to pick out, second from the right in the back row in the sleeveless shirt.
There is so much to break down here! Why is the guy on the right still in athletic shorts? Is that even a Christmas sweater in the front right? Why is Kingsbury the only one without sleeves? (Actually, that one is pretty obvious.)
An intrepid reporter could do an entire oral history on the making of this picture and win a Pulitzer. For now, we are content to stare in awe and confusion at one of the funniest photos we have seen in a long, long time.
