Washington State football coach Mike Leach is the gift that keeps on giving. The Cougars leading man is always giving hilarious soundbites and delivering epic rants, and they are once again on full display ahead of the start of the 2019 college football season.
In his latest rant, Mike Leach took on a very important issue: people and their love or dislike of cats.
For one reason or another, Leach decided to express his confusion over how people could possibly hate the felines during a recent media session.
“Somebody said that in passing, you know, ‘I hate cats.’ You know, somebody really hates cats, and I’ve never figured that one out. And credit to cats — the ability to generate that much animosity, you know. And I’m not sure how close of a relationship some of these people are planning to have with a cat or why they would value the opinion of a cat or their perceived opinion of a cat.
“I’m indifferent about cats, but I’ve just never understood how a cat can accelerate that much animosity. I mean, to me, it’s just a cat, it’s just a squirrel, it’s just a dove, it’s just a robin. I mean, what do I care?”
The comments initially stemmed from a simple tweet before he was asked to expand on his comments following a practice session.
I can’t figure out people that HATE cats? How do people generate THAT much animosity towards cats? It’s just a cat! How is it different than say a squirrel or a duck or a canary or…..?
