If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, you may remember that back in 2007, I gave out the first Great Great Man Award to Nick Lachey. Later that year, I named Patrick Swayze as the second winner. In 2008, I took it to a vote and Enrique Iglesias won the award. For the fourth award, I took a poll on this very website to find a new winner.
Beating out the likes of Tim Lincecum, Big Dave Meltzer, Brandon Walsh, and Bill Simmons is our fourth winner, “The Coach” Dan McEathron.
These two men were grandfathered into the Great Great Man Hall of Fame because of this video, which was taken at JJ’s 7th birthday.
Rather than write the history of The Coach, I decided to give him a call and we recorded a 30-minute podcast. You’ll learn about Dan’s childhood, how he met my cousin Tomiko, and what three movies you’ll watch at an all-night Coach movie party.
Also, you can take the poll on the right-hand side of the page to select the 5th winner of the Great Great Man award.
