Porn star mascots and other Monday musings
locker room speech by Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who's on leave of absence while he battles leukemia. It's a powerful and humbling demonstration of leadership and courage...Does anyone really believe that Jesse Marsch's departure from the Impact was by mutual agreement, or that the only thing mutually agreed upon wasn't that the outgoing coach would bite his tongue about what was obviously a dismissal in exchange for a golden handshake? As hands-on owners go, Joey Saputo is giving Jerry Jones and the late George Steinbrenner a run for their money, with decidedly mixed results...The newly relocated Brooklyn Nets of the NBA are considering renaming their mascot after learning that Brooklyn Knight was already taken - by a porn star. Presumably, the short list for a new name doesn't include Flick Shagwell, Candy Bangs or Buster Hymen.
