Mike Leach's description of playing in Tiger Stadium is absolutely glorious

Washington State head coach Mike Leach is currently on a tour supporting his new book Geronimo: Leadership Strategies of an American Warrior and made an appearance on ESPN's Baton Rouge affiliate to promote an upcoming signing in Houston. 

The first five minutes or so are related to the book, which is interesting in and of itself, but the six and a half minute mark is where the train takes a sharp turn toward the part of the world inhabited only by Leach's brain. At 6:40, host Matt Moscana asked Leach about his one trip to Tiger Stadium in 1998 as Kentucky's offensive coordinator. 

"It's incredible, it's one of the greatest game day environments that I've ever been a part of," Leach says. "There's little old ladies with their children and grandchildren doing a variety of hand gestures letting you know just what they think of you exactly."

But wait, there's more...You just have to listen to Leach describe the bus ride, the tiger itself, the locker room treatment, only he can. Enjoy! 

Be sure to skip to the 6:40 mark for the good stuff.
