Yesterday, Mike Leach turned 57 years young. I’m sure the head football coach had a lovely birthday, and while I don’t know what he got as far as gifts go (other than a lawsuit), I can ponder what I might give him, and you can too.
Based on what I’ve learned about Leach these past six seasons, here’s what I might get him, should I ever be invited to his birthday gathering:
- Cough drops
- A watch locked on New Mexico time
- Chilled coffee
- His own 10-minute podcast where he can talk about whatever he wanted, but it cut off after 10 minutes, whether he was finished or not.
- Proof of ASU’s sign stealing tactics
- A dartboard with Kent Hance’s picture in the middle
- A fresh banana
- A defensive tackle
He already got his contract extension, but I’m sure these gifts would make his birthday a little more memorable.
So, what gift will you be brining to the Mike Leach Birthday Bash?
