Nobody needs to worry about Rod Marinelli

29 Dec

rodmarinellibiggestloser.jpgLike the Jets’ Eric Mangini and the Browns’ Romeo Crennel, Lions coach Rod Marinelli got a pink slip tacked onto his office door as a bleated holiday gift after one measly 0-16 season.  We get ousting Mangini. We also get axing Crennel. But Marinelli? Man, this one was out of the blue. This is the season for giving and all, but we didn’t think that meant giving a perfectly halfway-decent coach a one-way ticket to the NFL’s unemployment line.

What is Nogaine? Good question. It’s a product that serves as the opposite of Rogaine — it helps hair fall out quicker. And who better to hawk a product that promotes losing than the biggest loser in NFL history, Rod Marinelli!
