If I met Mark Dantonio, I could not shake his hand.
While running to the store yesterday, I was listening to the MSU broadcast post-game interviews, and in passing, Dantonio said that the team had watched The Waterboy for its Friday team movie. Is there any chance they have already run through all of the truly inspirational football movies and this was the last one left -- a remarkable coincidence? Or were Dantonio and his coaches and players all giggling and elbowing each other over the uncanny resemblance of Adam Sandler and Luke Fickell? If he chooses The Flinstones Movie right before the Michigan game, my suspicions will be confirmed.
Dantonio blah-blah-blahed about respect and whatnot when Fickell got the job, but I think his choice of Friday team movie says more about his respect for Luke Fickell and the sort of juvenile person Dantonio is at heart.
Or it is all simply a coincidence. Or I'm the only person who looks at Fickell and thinks Waterboy.
