Lang Whitaker interviewed the former Atlanta Falcons coach on pro football, racing, Waylon Jennings, the superiority of athletics to academics, Texas-shaped skin grafts and rigging Internet polls on whether he's alive or not. Also, quotes like the following:â†µ
â†µâ†µ[Sound of an engine cranking, not turning over] They don't like to start. [Sound of an engine cranking, not turning over.] Wow, got some power, huh? [Sound of engine cranking, this time roaring to life; Glanville screams over the noise.] That's what I'm talking about! I'm gonna back out of the garage. It's a drag car that I run. It's an ‘84 Thunderbird, with a 351 Cleveland. Whoo baby! You think I'm crazy, don't you? [Immediately starts talking more UFL]â†µ
But it's a Jerry Glanville interview, so everything is worth quoting, down to the coach's conversation-concluding pep talk about wild horses. A Georgia sports treasure, friends. Let's go Hartford Colonials.
