Coach Mike Leach Is The Best
Leach told Jim Rome that he once signed for a package while walking around his yard naked and on the phone doing a radio show… Wow, just wow.
“So I’m sitting back there, and so I jump in the pool to kind of cool off, because it was cool to talk on the radio outside. And then I was also getting Fed Ex’s every week, to prep me for the game I was broadcasting.
“So I get in the pool, and I get out and I’ve got my board shorts on, so then pretty soon every time I get out of the pool I’m sitting on the lawn chair and I got these wet board shorts on so it’s like sitting in a diaper the whole time, you know.So you know nobody is around, fence around, so I think ‘What the heck, I’m taking these things off. And so I don’t have anything on, and I get up and I pace, I’m a pacer, I’m pacing right now. And then talking with my hands on air making just really profound points on radio, and I’m very proud of all the brilliant things I’m saying.
“And then I don’t have a stitch on, and through the gate here comes the Fed Ex guy, here comes the Fed Ex guy watching me pace around naked, talking on the radio about football and all this, and he’s like ‘What the hell?’ and then he hands me the Fed Ex, and of course I can’t break the conversation I have to keep talking. And the funny thing was, I’ve seen him every week, he never said anything, it was like ‘oh well another day.’ But yep, sure enough.”
Football is soooo close!!!
Who has the worst QB situation in the NFL? | For The Win
Nope, no risk of injury here...
????Tag a friend???? It's crazy how much improvements I have gotten over the course of one summer. In the 100 days that was given to me, 99 of those days were in the gym. My dad was asked "Why don't you get some sleep?" His reply is what set the tempo for my summer. He told the person "I can sleep when I'm dead. Until then, I don't need no sleep." Don't be afraid to give up sleep for results. I happen to do it a lot, but I see were I get it from. My mom and dad are go getters, I had no choice but to refuse letting grass grow under my feet. Which is why I do what I do, and that is grind!
Whoa, someone put all of Jason Statham’s punches into one video. Every. Single. Punch. Thrown!
This takes some serious skill. And he’s not bad on a long board either.
