You’ve got your sense of humor and I’ve got mine.

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!

    So Leach has skeletons in the closet in Lubbock?


  2. He’s being generous. Adam James is really 5’10”.

    I’m Craig James, and I’m a Grade A douche bag.

    Other brilliantly timed decisions Craig James has made:

    * October 1989 — applied for East German citizenship.
    * November 1991 — enrolled in Pan Am’s frequent-flyer program.
    * June 1995 — got a job as a consultant for Pacific University’s football team.
    * August 2009 — bought a Saturn Vue.

    This ad runs on the Longhorn Network. Both people saw it.

    He must get a free bowl of soup with that hat. It looks good on him.

    Yesterday evening: “We’ll wait to see in the morning what it looks like,” Perry said. Perry had about a dozen events scheduled over the next three days in South Carolina, but all that has been canceled.

    Today at zero dark thirty:

    With apologies to Mr. Chappelle, ole Craig might’ve been better off with “I’m Craig James, Bitch.”

      Great idea! Rick’s dead but the blonde’s probably still around and available for campaign ads with Craig

    Since Perry was handed his hat in Iowa, here’s wishing James will hich his hat to that vanishing star’s wagon. Yep, that timing is quintessential.

    He would like for “liberals to stop saying conservatives are dumb”. Ok, we will stop saying it because we only have to say,” I give you Craig James” from now on.
