[Sport] Starting 'em Young


Is that a hard G (as in golf) or a soft G (as in giraffe)? I haven’t heard anyone say it yet (because I can’t get my sports podcasts at the moment due to internet difficulties) but it has to be soft right?

Well Eric Mangini (or is it Mangini?) is the new head coach of the New York Jets. He is also the youngest head coach in the league at 35 years old. Not the youngest ever though that goes to Harland Svare of the LA Rams who took over in 1962 at 31 years of age. Hell, even John Madden was 32 when he took over the Raiders (Madden went on to be the winningest head coach ever and the namesake of a hell of a good game).

Mangini took the current youngest crown from Mike McCarthy who was only signed a short while beforehand to the Green Bay Packers.

And for your viewing pleasure here is a picture of Steve Smith's touch down celebration against Chicago last weekend.He's sliding down the goalpost, honestly.
