Super Mario Brothers (VC) coming Christmas day?

Recent rumblings in the Nintendo grapevine (read: forums) suggest that Super Mario Bros. is coming to the Virtual Console on Christmas day. Furthermore, Urban Champion, Baseball, and ToeJam and Earl are also suspected, though all are unconfirmed.

You know what would make this rumor even more juicy than the steak I had at Spencer’s on Saturday? If Nintendo would gift us the game we’ve paid for so many times before. You know, gratis. Do you believe in Santa Clause?
