A hearty welcome to Toronto Bart (d’oh) Andrus!
We are very happy to have you here. We have heard good things about you. LT didn’t sleep last night he was so excited that you have taken over the double blue.
My favorite part of his press conference was when he thanked his kids, saying that “being the kids of a football coach isn’t easy, all the other kids talking about your dad, the team….” Ummmm, Bart (D’oh) your kids won’t have that problem here. Steve Simmon’s in his article today was on the right track, suggesting that the job ahead of Andrus is huge, but the risk if he is unsuccessful isn’t obscurity it’s total irrelevancy. Interest in the double blue is really low. If the teams keeps failing they will become totally irrelevant, the worst thing that can happen to a sports team.
