VIDEO: Washington State Coach Gives Hilarious, Rambling Answer to Reporter Asking For Wedding Advice

Coach Mike Leach of the Washington State football team was finally given a question that had nothing to do with sports and his two-minute answer is spot on.

A reporter from Montana, Mike Stefansson, decided to use his time to ask Leach if he had any marriage advice to help him through his wedding that’s scheduled to take place next week. Leach could’ve given him a simple answer, but instead launched into a great, rambling explanation of what it’s like to be married.

He starts by wishing Stefansson a “very happy marriage,” but warned him that when it comes to marriage, women “lose their mind.”

“They’re going to barrage you with constant questions. ‘What should we wear?’ Which, of course, my answer was, ‘I don’t care.’ ‘What color should the invitations be?’ ‘I don’t care.’ ‘What should we have for dessert?’ ‘I don’t care.’ ‘Should we seat this this way, or that that way? ‘I don’t care.’”

And it gets better, where he explains the pitfalls of not caring, where you can get caught in a lie about what thing you don’t care about the most.

“‘What do you want for dessert?’ ‘I was thinking strawberry shortcake.’ ‘Oh, ok. Yeah, strawberry shortcake would be good. Well, what about the blueberry pie?’ ‘Well, I like the blueberry pie. We could have the blueberry pie’ — ‘Well, I thought you wanted to have the strawberry shortcake?!’ And it’s just going to go back-and-forth.”

He’s not wrong.

But, he makes the mistake of letting go one of his best tips: That you have to find which excuses that your wife will buy if you want to be “out of harm’s way” from that barrage of questions.

The short video is here, posted by Stefansson on his Twitter account:

The only thing missing from this whole story is what Leach’s wife has to say about the shortcake.

A few years ago we wrote up the strange case of a woman whose husband brought up divorce while they were at a friends’ wedding in the Hamptons. The woman was bewildered because her husband was “committed to social justice,” but still managed to convince herself that their young son would be fine if they divorced. After all, he loved social justice, and she was clearly perfect. She further went on, in shock, to find that her friends were not fully in support of her split. Oh, and we should mention — the author, Wendy Paris, is the author of a book on relationship advice which you should really, really not follow.
