“Riverboat Ron” is too crazy.
Straight-laced Ron Rivera decided to let his hair down in 2013. Almost losing his job woke something in the third-year head coach, causing him to take risks on fourth-and-short. Now he’s known as “Riverboat Ron,” the gambling, fun-loving boat captain. Ron wants you to call him something else, however — because, frankly it’s all a bit childish.
Good luck with that. pic.twitter.com/XUgR7Jdj8b
