The man is priceless. So is he Italian, really like Italians, or does he just think Irishmen drink too much, or some combination? Or is it just random synapse firings?
Yeah, yeah, we know, LSU fans. Your coach was simply saluting a people who have long worked hard to build our nation. And in delivering his thoughts on Columbus Day yesterday, he even managed to offer inspiration to future generations of explorers.
Tiger fans out of the room? Good.
Now the rest of us can have a laugh at Les Miles’ latest bizarro ramble:
“Good afternoon. Just want to remind everybody that it is Columbus Day. That all those of you that know Italians, that like Italians or the people that might venture onto a ship and travel to explore and find new lands, uh, this is your day. So, um, it’s not St. Patty’s Day. That’s a different day entirely.”
The guy can coach football, but he’d make even more money just doing off-the-cuff speaking engagements in Vegas or Atlantic City. Wouldn’t you pay $20 to listen to Miles talk for an hour or two? It’d be hysterical.
