Creeping bro-midism makes its way to the sports pages, this time in a Harvey Araton column about the New York Jets and their performance against the Bills yesterday. Araton writes of Head Coach Eric Mangini:
Four successive possessions that took the Bills to the Jets' 35, 19, 28 and 18-yard line resulted in the grand total of 3 points and spared Mangini the first major second-guess of his three-game head-coaching career. Instead, he got to bask in his own Man-genuity when Pennington, with the wind in the second quarter, took the Jets 67 yards for a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Chris Baker 14 seconds before halftime. That gave the Jets a lead, 14-10, they never relinquished.
Gee, wonder what he would have called it had Mangini pussied out.
