(Unless you’re not down with the changes. Then change the headline to “Stupid Coaching Change Day!”)
If radio reacted after a bad book like the NFL did today, the streets would run red with the blood of program directors nationwide. Uh, wait…
I think of this, of course, because where I live, the changing of the head football coach is akin to the birth of a new child: it’s an event that brings families together…an event that signifies new possibilities…an event that takes up your whole freakin’ day. And so when the peeps on Lombardi Ave. put on their terminatin’ suits this morning, I wasn’t sure the Mardi Gras-esque atmosphere would allow me to get this sucker done.
But Cleveland and Buffalo haven’t fired their football coaches (well, not yet…one imagines Mike Mularkey letting the phone go to voicemail all day) so we’ll start there, get in a side trip to Akron and end up in Rochester, which doesn’t have an NFL coach to fire (although it may be where Ralph Wilson finds Coach Mularkey).
Thanks to Carl Gorney for all of tonight’s audio related goodies.
