Sometimes when smart people talk, the general public just doesn't understand. Like, for instance, if one were to try to explain to me Quantum Chromodynamics. Well, when Mike Leach tried to analogize referee performance to an IHOP special, he really lost me:
"It's a little like breakfast - you eat ham and eggs," Leach said. "As coaches and players, we're like the ham. You see - the chicken's involved but the pig's committed. We're like the pig, they're like the chicken. They're involved, but everything we have rides on this."
So from what I can tell: Texas Tech=A Pig, Referees= A chicken. It is clear that Coach Leach was either reading Animal Farm or Green Eggs and Ham just prior to this interview.
We all know Mike Leach went to law school, so he isn't "Coach Fran" dumb. But why do I just have the suspicion that, if he were still to be practicing, he would look a little like this....
Judge: Mr. Hutz, are you aware you're not wearing any pants?
Lionel Hutz: Uh, your Honor, can I call for one of those bad trial thingys?
Judge: You mean a mistrial?
Lionel Hutz: Yeah ... that's why you're the judge, and I am the law ... talkin' ... guy.
