# jingle balls's sporting Advent calendar: day 6
An Irish rugby legend is hiding behind this morning’s Advent calendar window, but it’s not his skills on the pitch that have caught our attention. Open it.

IT’S BEGINNING TO look a lot like Christmas. Or at least feel a lot like Christmas — I’m freezing.

This morning’s Advent calendar treat comes to you courtesy of none other than Ronan O’Gara.

We could’ve picked this drop goal against Northampton, or even this one against Castres, but they’ll definitely be played over and over again in every review of the year worth its salt.

But ROG belting out Queen’s “I Want to Break Free” while driving with some buddies? That’s a real Christmas treat.
