Looks like all signs are pointing to Sparano becoming the next head coach of your Miami Dolphins. Armando Salguero reports on his blog that Jeff Ireland is on his way to (or has already arrived in) Dallas to pick up Sparano and bring him on over.
Meanwhile, PFT had this to say about the coaching interviews conducted by Parcells in the last couple of weeks:
"Parcells has improved the standing of guys like [Mike] Tice and Jim Schwartz and Leslie Frazier, potentially getting each of them raises by giving them interviews for a job that everyone knew was going to Sparano. More importantly, the favors that Parcells has done for these guys will only increase the Tuna's sphere of power and influence around the league.
Frankly, Parcells is no longer the Tuna . . . he's the Godfather."
And that's awesome. Because having Parcells' sphere of power and influence grow is a very good thing for us all. Also because The Godfather is the single greatest movie of all time. Parcells is building his "family" with his guys. He essentially had the old regime wacked (Cam Cameron as Fredo!) and brought in his own "Michael" (Ireland) to run the show.
Meanwhile, Sparano will be Fat Clemeza. Because it's the character he most resembles. Joey Porter is Sonny, because he's always angry and getting into fights. Me? I'm Batman. Because I'm a blogger with a secret identity who lives and works in
his mother's basement a batcave. Plus, I have Batman jammies. So I've got that going for me.
