    I caught some of the sharapova match over the weekend and was surprised to see, and hear, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio in the booth commenting on the tennis. He seems to be a big fan of the game, and he clearly knows the sport based on his insightful comments.

    They showed the replay of the coin toss, with Del Rio tossing the coin. We know he's a big guy, but he didn't look so big standing next to Sharapova ;-)

    Rios was a monster linebacker back in the day. Bet he has an awesome forehand.
