What it’s like to be fired as an NFL coach

He had planned to sleep at his palatial office. Shut his eyes in darkness. Open them to light. He’d peer out his window. Survey a well-manicured lawn. Then get to work. Because he loved his job. He really did.

He was a 38-year-old Midwestern transplant, who after three nomadic decades had found a home out west. Work had initially lured him to Los Angeles. Life had attached him. He’d graduated from early adulthood here. Learned a ton. Married. Had kids. He’d traveled north for a payday, then bolted east for a “great job,” then returned for his “dream job.” And in September 2013, even as he struggled, he couldn’t imagine leaving it.

Until, on a return flight after a business trip, he got the note. His boss wanted to meet. Not tomorrow. Tonight. And not in his office, not even at company headquarters, but in a private room at Los Angeles International Airport.

1. There are many horrible firing stories.

3. Sort of. But Bars close at midnight.

It’s also my sis in laws bd and was my mother’s as well.

We have a bottle of Cheap Champagne.
Larry Lake is cooking fresh shrimp with heads still on. We have an ice cream cake.

So paradise remains.

Sent my first wire transfer for rent. I think.
(Oops nope. Say I need more info I have to source)
So was thinking of you already today.

Going into town to buy some fruit.
I thought there would be way more fresh veggies here but not so far.

How about you?

4. Going to make a nice dinner and have agreed no TV

Been gone for 9 days so don't feel like going out.

Is there a specific "growing season" there?

Need to take this offline since thread about football. Go Baylor Bears!!
