John Danowski is a Long Island Boy and Don't You Forget It

I love Duke head coach John Danowski. If I had to pick one guy to play for -- assuming that I wasn't 31 and had a skill set that actually differentiates my use of a lacrosse stick to throw the bean rather than a mayonnaise jar -- it'd be Danowski. He's successful, his players love him, and his system is among the strongest in all of Division I.

What really sets him apart from the rest of college lacrosse, though, is that Danowski rolls with just about the most interesting Twitter account in the game. I've written about his laser-focused and complex coaching mind before, but yesterday we learned another fun fact about the Blue Devil patriarch: You can take the boy out of Long Island but you can't take the Long Island out of the boy:

Please tell me he tweeted that from a 1984 Pontiac Firebird while stuck in traffic on the Northern State Parkway while trying to get out to the North Fork for "the best friggin' day ever." This guy is the best.

Which reminds me: You can't mention REO Speedwagon's "Roll With the Changes" without popping the Sklar Brothers' bit, "Straight Man Cabaret":
