PLAYERS: Mike Leach
TEAMS: Arizona Cardinals
Mike Leach, settling in on the new job, does a pretty good chat with the Seattle Times.  My favorite part: Comment From Ethel Tell the truth, Coach: Do you ever get sick of the whole pirates’ thing? Mike Leach: I got flags, pins, swords, books, hats, Mickey Mouse ears with Pirates stuff on them. A sterling silver skull and crossbones. Posters and paintings. I got 6-foot skeleton. It’s in storage in Lubbock. I’m still getting it. As far as nicknames, as a kid, you don’t get to select them. Based on the ones I could have gotten tagged with, I feel very fortunate. Ba da boom!  I bet a few choice terms were thrown his way in closed-door meetings in Lubbock. Meanwhile, Leach’s nemesis launched his first campaign ad. Hitching your wagon to Rick Perry’s star?  Who knew James had a gift for comedic timing?  Kenny Banya approves.  That’s gold, Craig, GOLD! Filed under: Mike Leach. Yar!, Political Wankery
