If you take a jump over to CoachCal.com to vote in the “What movie should we show the team?” poll, you’ll see that the message is followed up with this little clearing-of-the-air note:
One more thing I want to share: I think by now, you guys know I say a lot of things tongue-in-cheek. It’s part of my personality. When I say them on camera they’re funny and you can see my facial expressions. On paper sometimes they don’t come across that way. I apologize if I offend anyone and I hope you all know that I’m a hugger not a fighter.
One would have to assume that this little addendum is in regards to the Rivals story where Coach said he would punch a certain media scoundrel if he saw them. While I’m all for a good slug to the gums, I’m equally pleased with the continued ear to the streets that Coach has shown since his arrival. And, one can only smile at the choice to say he’s a “hugger” rather than….well, you know. As “GummyBear” said on a previous post, the position of “lover” is already taken in this state.
Coach Cal, let’s just run off together already.
