Default Jack Del Rio "made right choice" with Broncos -nice article






The Broncos' defensive coordinator, and pro tem head coach last season, possesses a dedicated work ethic, determination and competitiveness defined by the Del Rio ancestry.

In 1907 a young Spaniard, whose last name meant "Of The River," and his wife were crammed with 2,200 other emigrants into "animal-like cages," it was reported then, in the hold of steamship Heliopolis docked at Malaga on the Mediterranean Sea. They were bound for a new life in the Pacific Ocean.

Forty-seven miserable days later — a voyage across two oceans and around the Strait of Magellan — the dazed passengers arrived in Hawaii. Fourteen babies had been born, but 19 children died. The Del Rio couple were among the 8,000 "contract employees," who had endured hunger and unrest in southern Spanish villages, lured to an "island paradise" with promises of a house, an acre of land, medical care and 20 gold pieces a month.

"My great-grandfather was a pineapple picker," Jack Del Rio told me.

The imported workers had not understood they would labor 16 hours a day 26 days a month at the blooming pineapple plantation on the northwest side of Maui.

He made right choices? According to Baja, Jack did jack **** (or benefitted) while his great grandfather worked his ass off. Maybe there is more but without a link, the powerful ending is somewhere in internet land.

As ludo21 says, The "made the right choice" line refers to Del Rio taking the Broncos job instead of taking a year off and collecting a check from the Jaguars.

I disagree with ludo about taking the year off. I think Del Rio has a better chance of landing another head coaching gig now than he ever would have if he took a year off. A new head coaching gig will buy a lot of pineapples.

Fingers crossed his next gig is with the Broncos..Del Rio is a great HC.. I know Peyton played him enough when he was in Indy..given a better personal Del Rio could have won a SB..

Hey, I have laid off you (no sexual reference) a long time ago. I could do it everyday but you get abused by the others enough. Dont be exaggerating now. Baja, too damn sensitive. He forgot the link and cant take a little ribbing. Hell, that was way light. Old man needs to have a Corona...or four.

Dude it's not just one post. You are obsessed with this posting rules thingy. You are approaching errand level obnoxious. Just trying to give you a heads up.
