Nothing says 'Merry Christmas' like a brand new stolen Xbox

Brotherly love is a great thing. Especially around Holiday Time. Families mesh, spend countless hours with each other, and drink eggnog with their regularly scheduled rum or whiskey.

But the holidays mean something different for the Ikegwuonu twins. Jack, a corner for Wisconsin, and brother William, a safety at Northern Illinois have been accused of breaking into an off-campus apartment in DeKalb, Ill. and trying to steal an Xbox game console.

As a twin, you'd expect us to know what these guys were thinking, right? Well, sorta.

We can assume that Jack's the mischievous one -- call it a hunch -- and forced William to tag along when he pulled off the theft. But of all things to steal, just an Xbox?

They didn't think to get some money, cook-ware or a new tube of toothpaste? Nah, straight for the video games.

Had the twins not had their party broken up by the police, wonder who the recipient of the game console would've been.

Our guess is Barry Alvarez. Just cuz.

The photo, coincidentally, is of Jack, ironically on the cover of NCAA '07 for Xbox. Maybe a copy of the game is what he was really after.
