Ed Khayat, Coach Phila Eagles Football Team - Phila, PA

Very early on Sunday morning, I was just finishing a workout at a local Philadelphia health club and had just finished showering. I went to my locker with nothing on but a towel wrapped around my waist. Unknown to me, Mr Khayat had just taken the locker next to my own. All I said was good luck in today's game. He had a cigar in his mouth and spoke with a heavy southern accent. He said why son blah, blah blah for forty-five minutes. He had his hand on my shoulder and maintained eye contact the entire time.
I was very late getting home and my wife wanted to know why. I told her "you are not going to believe who gave me a 45 minute lecture on pro football". She said "well, what did he say?". I said I didn't understand a word because of the cigar in his mouth and his heavy accent.
