I mentioned the guy doing his job before didn’t give me the time of day. I encouraged him to never be shy about calling me out if I write something incorrect or if it’s just something he disagrees with me on. He was cool about it, gave me a firm handshake that shook the right side of my 300-pound body. Got to admit, I was ready to suit up right there and play some football, and I haven’t done that since high school.
Pagano had me fired up, too. Can’t deny it. I know it’s early yet, the honeymoon as someone on Twitter advised isn’t over yet. But in this job you try to get a feel for people, what they’re about, how they are wired and almost the second you meet them you start breaking down what they’re saying and how they’re saying it.
