Waiting to get a read on Les Miles? We've got the word: flaaaaaky. Has sugar problems. Potentially born without a governor on his inner monologue, and not in that mad professor way like Mike Leach, but more like a sugar-crazed regional manager going nutsini at a quarterly reports meeting.
("I WILL TEAR THIS PHONEBOOK IN HALF TO PROVE TO YOU HOW SERIOUS I TRULY AM ABOUT EXCELLENCE!!!")
Miles dropped the F-bomb in reference to Alabama. And when we say the F-bomb, we mean fuck, as in "fucking Alabama," the answer he gave to a question about LSU's biggest rivalry. He can be confused for Godzilla. He lets it rip! He seems just a pace out of step with most public speaking situations, which leads us to our story.
Miles missed a trip to Monroe, Louisiana last week due to bad weather. Being the nice professional that he is, Miles addressed the crowd gathered at the dinner via cellphone. (Again, non-SEC sports fans. These are adults standing rapt around a cell phone talking about football. You don't take this shit as seriously. You just. Can't.)
Miles opening line to the crowd he couldn't see? "I look forward to getting to Shreveport to see a lot of friends."
It's ok, Les. Dangerous Toys did the same thing during the Monsters of Rock tour in Shreveport, and everyone was so hammered no one noticed. And they were HUGE, man.
