Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is a noted pirate enthusiast and new author. He recently did a signing for his new book, “Swing Your Sword,” in Lubbock, where lots of fans waited in line to meet the coach.
One fan was dressed in full pirate gear and looking like Johnny Depp from “Pirates of the Caribbean” while holding six of Leach’s books. He was asked to whom he was going to give the books.
“Some are for friends, some are for me,” he said before letting out a hearty laugh. All that was missing was a giant, “Yargh!”
We knew Leach had his supporters at Texas Tech, but who knew he might actually be inspiring people to become pirates?
