Larry David loves golf. This we know. As evidenced by his interview with David Feherty, his skewering of Jordan Spieth’s hairline, and the time he wrote a golf column for The New Yorker, golf is a game that Larry David has already accepted he’ll never conquer. And that’s fair.
But yesterday, he went on The Dan Patrick Show and explained to everyone why he legitimately thinks he could be the Offensive Coordinator for the New York Jets. After he does some typical old man complaining about Ryan Fitzpatrick’s beard, McLovin’ asks him if he really thinks he could be an OC. Starting at 1:28, LD explains why it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
Listen, we’ve all been there. I, personally, think every coach for my favorite professional teams are all complete puppets. I can call when we’re running a screen, I can know when to blitz, and I can make a gameplan that will establish the run. But listen, the second I (or Larry David) got on the sideline with our clipboard full of plays, we’d shit our khakis and get laughed out of the stadium.
For the sake of entertainment, though, I’d rather have Larry David running around the sidelines calling plays than anyone I’ve currently got in charge. It’s not like the Lions are going to win a Super Bowl anyway. .
