UNT Coach Has Stroke, Looks Forward to Cocktail

Dan McCarney might be my new hero. The 58-year-old UNT football coach had a stroke Sunday and was rushed by helicopter to a hospital, where he remains. An alert FrontBurnervian points us to a Des Moines Register story, which quotes him thusly:

“I’ve got too much Irish in me to stay down very long. … I’ve got a little tingling feeling, but hey, if that’s the worst of it, I’d say I’m a pretty lucky guy. Nothing wrong with me that a little Grey Goose won’t cure.”

Only thing I’d tell McCarney is that he might want to go the Jameson or Bushmills route if he wants to play that Irish card.
