Slate keeps redesigning its site, but still manages to bury articles so that I find things I want to read two or three days late. Like this piece: God’s Coach – How Bill Parcells raised the Cowboys from the dead. The religious stuff is rather silly–does the Almighty hate the Arizona Cardinals?–but there are some amusing bits. My favorite:
Hanging around the Cowboys this season, I watched God’s coach work in mysterious ways. Parcells had surveyed his linebacker corps and compared the group to circus midgets. Guard Larry Allen, the pachyderm, was spending so much time off the practice field and on the exercise bike that Parcells presented him with a yellow jersey, a’ la Lance Armstrong.
And they say Parcells doesn’t have a sense of humor!
