Mike Leach's Reddit AMA: The Greatest Moments

Washington St. Cougars coach Mike Leach did a Reddit AMA (a public interview thing) Monday, answering questions from college football fans on marriage advice, whether he'd like to play Texas Tech in a bowl game (OF COURSE), the birth of his offense, how terrible Craig James is (TERRIBLE), his favorite pirates, where to take a date in Pullman, Mark Mangino, his favorite opposing stadiums, and how essential it was to score 70 points on Nebraska that one time.

However, this may be the finest exchange any coach has ever humored:

Who is your favorite professional wrestler? What would your opening line be if you were a Real Housewife of Pullman?

It's funny you ask. My dad always watched wrestling and I seldom did. The one that comes to mind is the Vashon Brothers when I was a child. The imagine most prominent in my mind is the Undertaker.

I don't know what my opening line would be but it would be fashioned after Tamra on the Real Housewives of Orange County. My oldest daughter, Janeen, always tells my wife Sharon that my wife reminds her of Tamra. They look similar!

The internet loves itself some Mike Leach, and will continue to do so.
