Pat Fitzgerald stars in "Coaches in Cars Getting Coffee"


Two years ago, basking in his hundreds of millions and wondering what to do with the rest of his life, Jerry Seinfeld started a web series called "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee". The premise is as imaginative as its title. It's comedians, in cars, getting coffee. 

Like that other thing he's famous for creating, the genius in CCC is its simplicity. Nothing is happening, which is what allows everything to happen. It's Seinfeld and one of the best comedians in the world telling stories, talking about life, and showing us all what makes them the best comedians in the world. 

Northwestern has borrowed that idea with its most prominent head coaches - football's Pat Fitzgerald and basketball's Chris Collins. Both hail from the Chicagoland area, and it's possible no one loves Chicago more than these two. 

Like its namesake, the video is nothing more than the two driving around the Windy City and reminiscing about their Chicago sports heroes and showing off what our own Doug Samuels has proclaimed the greatest city in the world.
