Jets coach Rex Ryan has been doing his part to stir up the rivalry between his team and the Miami Dolphins, including most notably a much-publicized middle finger to fans at a January MMA event in South Florida.
Now, one of the Dolphins’ beats writers has returned the favor, making the following observation on Twitter.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald pointed out that Dolphins coach Tony Sparano has lost 30 pounds this offseason via diet and exercise. “He did it thru hard work,” Salguero writes, “not a lap band.“
That last part refers to Ryan’s much-publicized decision to undergo weight-loss surgery, an effort undertaken after repeated efforts at losing weight in a more traditional way had failed.
