I love good sports writers – those who are accurate, insightful, and respectful. But an added bonus is wit…and this comment from Mike Tanier about interim Saints head coach Joe Vitt has kept me laughing for days:
Vitt is an old-fashioned motivator, not an X’s and O’s guy; Drew Brees called him “one of those guys who just loves his players” this week, while Junior Galette said that Vitt “says everything with conviction.” “He could say, ‘Hey, the sky is black,’ and he’ll get you to believe that.” Vitt is apparently even more convincing at night.
Seriously…every time I think about it I crack up all over again. Well played, Mr. Tanier.
