A dose of humor

Some funny thoughts from the world of sports.

My personal favorite
Norm Sloan, the former North Carolina State and Florida basketball coach who died this week at 77, wasn’t a stickler when it came to the academic qualifications of his recruits. When Pat Kennedy took over as coach at Florida State in 1992, he said Sloan once tried to recruit a player to Florida who “was so dumb he had to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to himself because the ending helped him remember his name.”
