Saturday is Mike Leach's Favorite Day of the Year

That's because he gets to celebrate a special holiday, as it is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.

A couple of Oregon residents named John Baur and Mark Summers came up with the idea. They nicknamed themselves "Ol' Chumbucket'' and "Cap'n Slappy,'' started the Holdiay 14 years ago, and got some national pub earlier this decade when columnist Dave Barry wrote about it.

Saturday's game in Austin will be Techs first time to play on Talk Like A Pirate Day since Leach took over as head coach.


And Will Muschamp has just the thing to help him celebrate.
