For the first time in NFL history, a black head coach has led a team to the Super Bowl. For the first time in NFL history, he will also face another black head coach on the opposite sideline.
Tony Dungy, of the Indianapolis Colts, and Lovie Smith, of the Chicago Bears, are making NFL history. Both are friends and are excited for each other. Both, however, also feel the need to win.
"I'm going to kick that jungle bunny's ass," said Dungy on media day in Miami, site of Sunday's game. "I'll pop a cap at him if he tries to take this win from me."
"Ain't no way I'm losin', this game to no spearchucker." said Smith. "You might as well put him back on that boat and send him home."
In an attempt to try to pull in all of the black fans, who are evenly split on whom they will root for, both coaches have a plan. From now on, Lovie Smith wants to be known as "Lovie Doggy Two-Pack Sixty-nine cents Bitchin' with My Ho's in the Hood." Dungy, on the other hand, has changed his name to "DJ Tony Puff Diddly King Obama Mama Canyu East Fresh Prints Yo Blood Homie."
Most black men interviewed about which team or coach they were planning on cheering for wanted to know if there was another Lingerie Bowl this year.
