Mike Leach: All About Raccoons, Drinkable Coffee & Football
How? Explain to me how I was only a fringe witness to these Mike Leach shenanigans? I knew he commented on some movie once randomly and was on the level of quirky as far as your quirky college football coaches go, but this coffee thing is something that should be time-capsuled. He also once owned a pet raccoon named Bilbo Baggins and would like to get another.
See, that's the majesty of being quirky. You always have an extra lane to take when folks start asking you about football questions you'd prefer not to answer. He could talk about raccoons for 40 minutes and I'd totally forget that he's a football coach. Also, being donned "The Kingslayer" because of a bum hand is one of the coolest nicknames you could give an athlete.
