While working on this profile of Dolphins coach Tony Sparano, people kept swearing that the guy had a great sense of humor. It was hard to see, considering his normal grumpy demeanor in press conferences and most public appearances in general.
But then I watched the clip above of Sparano hamming it up for Sportscenter back when he was an assistant coach for the Dallas Cowboys. Yeah, that's Sparano doing a bit of acting. His Cinemax line might not earn him an Oscar, but one thing the video does show is just how many friends Sparano has made in the sports world, considering the cameos here by Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Cowboys QB Tony Romo.
